What we've done:

During our servicing process, we have been able to keep all of its original features. This is a circa 1948 original Rolleiflex that has been used with moderation. There is still some paint loss, pitted metals, slight marks on the optical commensurate with its age. The original leather case is in very good condition (only the plastic window at the rear had some tape on it to strengthen it). Please study carefully the attached pictures as they are part of the description.

We did a full overhaul of the camera.

The front and the optical elements have been disassembled and cleaned up.

both side panels has been opened.

The cranking system  has been assed, cleaned up, lubricated and tested.

Same for the focussing system which has been adjusted after cleaning and re-lubrication.

We fully checked the camera and all movements are  fine.

We have fully tested the camera with a Black And White film Fomapan 200, please see attached scanned pictures.

We have documented all the servicing process of a similar Rolleiflex in our own workshop, please click here to watch the slideshow.
