    how big is your line of credit if you do find one. I've had a couple and they are a hoot.

    I was wandering through an eBay search I review regularly (for Mamiya 645 stuff) and noted a digital back for the Mamiya 645AFD selling for the bargain price of several thousand dollars. Out of curiosity, I peaked at the details, and noted that the sensor size was approximately 39mm x 39mm - could be a perfect fit for a baby Rolleiflex !!

    Do you think they make an adapter ?

    Hey, try a Yashica 44 hood on the Rollei. I have a Yashica 44 and a Sawyer's 44. The hoods are the same size and the screw holes are almost identical.

    Check out the listing for a Yashica 44 hood here.

    Baby Rollei...

    My father gave me a new Baby Rollei when I was 12 years old, in 1965, and it produces WONDERFUL images! You will be astounded by them! I still use it occasionally. Now, if I could only find a 127 stainless steel reel for processing the film, I wouldn't have to suffer with the confounded plastic ones...

    If you dont mind the postage you can get a stainless Hewes 127 reel for Paterson Tanks from Retro Photographic in the UK.They are a bit pricy at £22.99
    Go to there site and do a search for 127 and you should find it.

    They also list 127 B&W film and Colour 127 film that is in date.

    I use a Rollei 4X4 I find the Efke B&W a bit of a pain as it curls real bad, I wish I could get some E6 127 films.

    127 reels

    Hey, Charlie--thank you for the referral! I just e-mailed them in the UK from my house in Los Angeles and asked them if they ship to the U.S.

    Hi Dave! Believe the request was for a "lens hood", not a viewfinder hood.

    If anyone wants a Baby Grey Rollie in excellent condition let me know. I bought this a couple of years ago and had Marflex give it a CLA and overall checkup. This also comes with a sealed brick of unused but outdated B&W Efke film and a patterson film development tank. I'm going to Ebay this soon. I never got around to using it. All reasonable offers considered. Contact me if interested at www.deleon-ulf.com. Emile.
