    WTB: "chimney" finder for late model Rolleiflex

    I understand that Rollei made a rigid chimney finder for late model 3.5F and other cameras with removable hoods. I believe they may have variable diopter control, though I'm not sure. I'd be interested in buying one, if I can afford the price. Thanks for getting in touch with either advice or if you have one for sale.

    I believe that the only chimney finder Rollei made was for the SL66 camera. I have one and it did not fit my 2.8 'flex. In Irving Penn's book "World's in Small Room" there is a photo showing Penn's Rollieflex with a chimney finder. It is a Hasselblad finder which was adapted to fit the Rollei.

    Rollei' TLR chimney was identical to the SL66 but for the mount for the TLR. It is excellent !

    You'll find it where the snipes and
    the unicorns play. In the meantime,
    buy yourself a Hasselblad chimney
    finder and a Baier adaptor at

    and you'll be good to go.

    Here's a link to a photo of me using my
    Hasselblad chimney finder on my 2.8E3:

    It works perfectly.

    You have TWO Rolleiflex chimneys?
    Now I know where they went.

    Thanks to everyone for the tips. I knew there had to be a way to make this happen. I've got the eye-level prism but there are times when only a chimney will do. I like the Hasselblad chimneys because they have diopter or focus control. I guess some money will be heading to the UK now!
