    Hi to you all out there and seasons greetings.
    I am trying to identify a ROLLEIFLEX camera that a very dear old friend left me.It has the serial number DBP 1865611 DBGM.It seems to be in excellent condition with brown leather case with the name Franke & Heidecke around lense.Any help would be wonderful as i would like to start using this "gift" to remind me of my dear friend.
    Many thanks Darren Macartney.

    Welcome to APUG Darren. Of couse you could face with little problems when loading or unloading your film but they are not important. Very expensive camera and take care it well.

    Welcome!

    And remember, just because the world looks backwards in the viewfinder of the Rolleiflex, does not mean that it isn't.

    :D
