    Hi, I picked up a Rollei Magic (Original) the other day, it was only £5 ($10) but i have one problem. The meter is missing, and, for some reason, so is the shutter release.
    Would it be possible for me to find a replacement shutter release? And, i saw an article about using a silicon photocell instead of the original Selenium cell on an Olympus Eye. Would a similar approach be useful on the Magic?

    It's a beautiful camera, it's got so much more weight than my Lubitel II and a full focusing screen.

    And for one last question, is the 6x4.5 mask actually 6x4.5 or 5.5x4.5, and does it extend the roll to 16 exposures?

    Thanks,

    Henry
