    I've got a Rollei shade & am not to be knowing which camera the critter fits. It has a glossy black finish withthe older Rollei/F&H logo on the top of the hood. The aluminum mount section measures 41.65mm in diameter not including the mounting tabs.

    It probably fits one of the prewar Rolleicord or Rolleiflex cameras.

    Does it match the size of the yashicamat stuff you have for sale? That is the smallest size of bayonet, the Bay 1, there are also bay 2 and 3. The oldest 3.5s seem to take the Bay 1, the other 3.5s seem to take the bay 2. Bay 3s are used by the 2.8s. I am guessing from the size that it just might be a bay 3, but I can't tell from here. I got one of those in a box of "junk" that I picked up on eBay once and it sold for over $100. It was in absolutely mint condition with the leather case, however, so one that looks more used and does not have the case will probably be worth somewhat less. (But still way more than it should be :smile:) Sometimes the size is listed on the mount, is there any lettering there?

    I would take a look at the Global Rollei Club at http://rolleiclub.com/. They have a listing of all of the TLRs and which accessories they took, along with lots of other good stuff.

    Paul,
    It's larger than the Yashica by about 4-5mm(eyeballing). The only markings are the logo & Germany on top & bottom of the hood respectively.
    It would make life way too easy if they put a size on it.

    Mine had a R-III on it. (Fancy Rollei R!)

    Sounds like maybe a II rather than III. I think there is a place somewhere out there where they have specs on these things, but I have lost track of it since I haven't sold any Rollei stuff in a while. If I figure it out I will let you know.

    Does someone out there have any hoods or filters for their Bay II or Bay II Rollei that they could measure?

    If it has two small levers on either side down near the base, then it's for a prewar Rolleiflex or Rolleicord and not any of the bayonet hoods.

    I've just measured a Bay III hood. The mounting ring has an OD of 55.7 mm and an ID of 46.7 mm. One of my hoods is marked "R III" (curly R) and the other "38Φ". My Bay IV hood mounting ring is 61 mm OD and 52 mm ID, marked "Baj. IV".

    Best,
    Helen

    jking,
    Sounds like a Bay II alright, a couple thousndths off is probably my casual attitude with the caliper.
    Thanks to all very much.
