    Rolleiflex - is this for real

    How can any Rolleiflex user live without the following:-

    Looks like it would be very difficult to use on the street

    hey mark

    i have a 33' I type 3a rolleicord i had modified so i could use with a motor drive ( like the one you linked to )
    the "upgrade" was well worth the 900$ i paid ( they had to modify a more-modern rolleiflex mechanism to work
    in my camera, and they had to modify the camera to work with the newer-winder ) ...
    its pretty easy to use on the street ...
    i have a small trailer i attach to my waist which has a small gas powered honda generator that i use to plug the winder into.
    since i started to use this rolliecord to do street work i realized the shutter is too loud and people take notice of me.
    i guess i have to have the shutter modified too ...

    Good for endurance testing your shutter and transport.

    John, I'm interested why you wanted this device. Is this a desire fore a short burst large format cine camera? If so, for what use?

    hi clive

    to be honest, i was joking
    i find the idea of having a motor drive for a 12 frame roll of film
    to be kind of funny .. i too am looking for the point !

    sorry for the confusion

    Now if it spun 360* it might make a great pano camera.

    it's a shame the motor drive is not compatible with this:

    150 exposure back for the Rollei
