    Rolleiflex Standard

    Very nice early Rolleiflex, one of the nicest I've seen. Lens is clean, clear, no scratches. Overall cosmetic appearance is very good, the mirror is very clean and the ground glass is also in good shape. Comes with original case (not shown). The faster speeds work but the slower speeds stick, it needs a CLA, but apart from that in very fine condition. £100 + postage. Paypal yes. Am in UK, will post anywhere apart from despotic places.....

    That is the oldest Rolleiflex I have seen at a affordable price and in nice condition. I would snap this up if my budget would allow.
    Good Luck.

    I have and use one which is fuctionally fine, but nowhere near as nice cosmetically. They're a really nice camera, this one looks gorgeous.

    Me too. Paid about the same price for far worse condition. Though mine did come with what looks like an original hood and yellow push on filter....

    Really nice camera!

    I absolutely love mine, though it's in FAR worse cosmetic condition. Seeing those pics makes me think I need to restore it at some point. GLWS.

    Seems it may need an immediate CLA. Those oxides are visible around the screws.

    Holga 120GFN: Amazingly simple yet it produces outstanding negatives to print.

    FWIW, mine sat in its leather case in a musty old antiques store for an indeterminate period of time (quite a while is my guess) and had about 100 times more oxidation on virtually every brass part (the paint had long gone from most of them). The shutter speed and aperture levers barely moved. Simply exercising the shutter and gently cleaning the exterior and the lenses made it 100% functional (if not pretty).

    I am glad that you have a functional camera. Hope you can share some pics of those old gems.
