Going In Full Circle
The first camera I've ever used was my dad's Rolleiflex. I borrowed it whenever I get a chance. I always wanted one of my own.
Recently, I acquired this good user Rolleicord IV, a simpler camera than the Rolleiflex but it produces the same quality image. The viewing screen is a little dim so it was hard to focus. I trimmed a discarded fresnel viewing screen from my old Hasselblad 500C and placed it on top of the Rollei's viewing screen. It made the viewfinder about one stop brighter.
It has a superb Xenar 75mm f3.5 lens.
Some shots from the Rolleicord IV's first rolls. Film: Ilford Delta 400 Pro and Fuji Neopan 400
