Selling this Excellent beautiful ROLLEIFLEX 3.5 F Planar (model 1). I believe from about 1960. You can check the serial number to confirm.

I am the second owner of the camera which I purchased in 2002. I had it seen by the great Harry Flennor that same year though it really didn't need much done.

I've probably shot about 50 rolls through it in all those years. These mechanical shutters liked to be used. The shutter speeds are good and the original focusing screen is excellent. The film winds correctly. The light meter works.

Included is the lens cap, a Rollinaar 2 close up filter, Rolliefix for the tripod, two hoods, third party strap a Bay2 Heliopan UV filter for the taking lens and a older Bay 2 Vivitar filter I kept on the viewing lens to protect it.

Not shown is a torn up leather case that could be repaired. NOTE the small dent in the bottom of camera. Does not affect shooting.

"The Rolleiflex line of cameras were the more professional cameras produced by Franke & Heidecke. The Rolleiflex 3.5 line kicked off in 1949 and effectively concluded with the 3.5F in 1976, a run of 27 years. The 3.5F combined all the previous advancements of the 3.5 line, including a coupled selenium light meter, self-timer, M-X flash synchronization and a removable finder hood. It continued to use the Bay II system of bayonet-mount filters.

"Rolleiflex 3.5F cameras can be found with one of two lenses: either a Zeiss Planar 75mm f3.5 or a Schneider Kreuznach 75mm f/3.5. The Planar lenses are generally considered the most desirable, and will influence the individual camera's price, but in reality both lens options are superb. It should also be noted that the upper viewing lens has a maximum aperture of f/2.8 for bright viewing."

"Owning a Rolleiflex 3.5F is one of the most enjoyable experiences you can have for shooting twin lens reflex. While there are many other good TLR cameras out there, none of them combine the style, smoothness, reliability and sharpness of a Rolleiflex."
