On a Platter

Here's another weird bench at nearby Jamaica Pond. Definitely more functional, though, than the now-gone really weird bench.


This is another Rolleiflex that I got in my continued search for the one TLR.... was in OK shape, but after finishing one roll, suddenly the aperture won't open wider than F8. Weird. I'm getting the feeling that I'm just going to have to bite the bullet and plonk down some serious dough to get the one I'm truly satisfied with... or, just go back to my trusty 124G :-P

    All Rolleiflexes are awesome machines! If it doesn't work, just send down to a technician to get it fixed. It should get back on its feet for another 50 more years!

    Perhaps you're right.... though the imperfections in the optical elements of the two I currently own makes me hesitate. If the optics were perfect, then i wouldn't mind spending a chunk getting the mechanics fixed...

    Thanks! I have to give Rollei credit there, for sure. They make beautiful TLRs.....

    Well, you can get them for cheap if you look and can live with some imperfections :-) I got the 2.8C for $200 and 3.5E for $300.

    Thanks!!! I am quite pleased with the DoF I'm getting out of the GF1 + Kern Switar combo :-)))


    ほんとに。ねー! もとの造形が美しいが故に(普段はあまり気にしないんだけど)外観の不具合が気になってしまうという諸刃の剣だけどw

    遅ればせながら、ありがとうございます。本当に! でも、修理に出しましたw 修理費の方が購入費より高かったりして……OTZ..
