    Rollieflex SL66 Repairs?

    Can anyone give me a repair service that will work on a Rollieflex SL66 with an erratic meter? My go-to place, Midwest Camera Repair, said they don't work on these.

    thanks,
    s-a

    SL66 does not have a meter.

    Well, the SL66E surely does and mine has been a mess since the day I got it and I would love to hear the answer to this one, please.

    As his website indicates, Jurgen Kuschnik passed away earlier this year.

    Harry Fleenor is known especially for Rollei TLR repairs, but his website indicates that he works on the SL66 too:

    Yes, I know the E does.

    Too bad Jurgen is gone. He repaired one of my SL66 bodies back when he lived in LA. Otherwise, yes Harry would be my recommendation too.

    You could send it to "Rollei" Germany (DHW that is) or inquire at the new founded Rollei Distributor in the US or several repair men in Germany.

    So do you have an E or are you talking about a metering head?

    The camera is my brother's (in Albuquerque) and I'm an idiot with a keyboard. What he has is an SL35 with a Zeiss 1.4/50 lens. Apologies to all who answered. My information to MCR was correct so they're still out of the picture.
