    Identifying this Camera

    Hi, I recently came into the possession of an old Rolleiflex Camera and have been trying to figure out what model it is.

    The Serial Number is 1605933 if that helps. It also has a Carl Zeiss 2.8 80 mm lens.

    On the sides of the serial number it also says DBP and to the right DBGM if that helps.

    Any information would be extremely appreciated. Thanks!

    The Rollei Club website should give you some useful info.

    The 2.8 D. Very nice camera. It doesn't have the aura of the F series, but some people prefer the 'classic' Rolleiflex before they started adding fancy geegaws like metering and such. From the height of Rollei's skilled manufacturing days.

    DBP and DBGM are German marks, like the US trademark sign (e.g, 'Deutsches Bundes-Patent', previously DRP, 'Deutsches Reichs-Patent', no longer applicable for obvious reasons)
