    WTB: Rolleiflex Wide TLR in user condition

    Hello All: I'm a Professor of Photography, teaching film base photography. To maintain interest in film I use manual cameras,120 folders, TLR, graflex SLR's View cameras,Pinhole etc. in my classes for students to use and learn about photography's past before digital cameras, most have been donated.

    I'm looking to purchase a user condition Rolleiflex Wide TLR to shoot with and to use in my advance classes. Doesn't have to be perfect. OK if Camera has issues, slow shutter speeds off, etc. Poor cosmetic condition ok.

    Thanks

    Good Luck with that!! Only about 3600 ever produced. Rare and expensive!

    I went through this craziness a year ago.
    My findings:
    - you can find one, but must be patient
    - it may stretch your budget
    - they do come up on ebay
    - when you find one, you may end up finding two or three more in quick succession.

    Good luck

    I have one. Love it. Spent more than I should have but I did get it from an old and experienced camera repair technician who got it 10-15 years before from someone who had bought it new. He checked it out thoroughly and gave me a warranty. Also came with original stock hood, stock lens cap, stock leather case, ground glass insert and a few stock B&W filters too.

    There are the usual over the top BIN ones priced ridiculously on eBay, and otherwise I have seen the rare one on ebay go for less than $2000 in moderate shape but with little accessories (and once even without the top viewfinder). Bottom line: If you think you'll find one cheap you can forget it.

    As mentioned mine was not cheap but I'm a serious Rolleiflex collector so I sucked it up and will likely be buried with it. ;-).

    I will say though amazing results:
