    Unfortunately Jürgen don't service cameras outside the EU (Norway is in Europe, but we are not a EU member), but I sent a mail to Mr. Mickleboro in the UK to see if he is willing (I've red some great reviews on him as well).

    Harry could do the job, so I do have the option to send the camera to the US.

    Yep, I did try the tape trick on Saturday (actually, i just put a piece of extra tape over the original tape on the film) and the camera operation, shutter, transport, frame spacing, focus etc is all golden

    Jurgen's site says he does service on a worldwide basis. If B. Mickleboro doesn't work out I recommend Jurgen based on the service he did for me on my '37.
    Good luck.

    Brian is recommended - his turnaround was quick, he was extremely helpful and informative over the phone and most all did a quality job on my 3.5F.

    Well, I sent him a mail and explained everything, but he was very clear that if I was not within the EU, he could unfortunately not help me. (complicated paper work and so on).

    He explained: "Since I am retired and not active in the repair shop anymore I have to decline the repair unless you can send it from within the E.U."

    Update:

    I got the camera back from Mr. Mickelboro (he was really quick), he did some adjustments for me and serviced the camera, good man.

    Unfortunately, the winter is hellish over here now, so I've not been able to go outside to do some real photography with the camera (only test-shots so far).
    - Choosing between shooting in -15 degrees celsius with clear skies or -2.5 degrees and heavy now isn't really an option for me, I'll wait for the spring

    Anyway, I made a blog entry about the camera here if anyone is interested:

    Looking forward to some practical shooting with the camera asap \o/

    I've always used a Rollei T with 3.5 Tessar lens, I seem to recall reading that with some 2.8 models you actually feed the film leader THROUGH the metal roller, rather than over it as is the case with other Rolleis. Is there a 2.8 user who can confirm or deny this?

    When they invented the sensor roller you speak of they started calling Rolleis "Automat" The Automats start pretty early in the Rollei line. It isn't only the 2.8s that have the auto feeler roller.
    When they started making the 2.8 GX they got rid of the auto feeler. Now in the FX/FT/FW/Fx-N there is no auto feeler, you merely line up the arrow with the red dot just like the T. As far as I am concerned it is good riddance. IMO the auto feeler had almost no value beyond being a selling point. I trust the red dot and arrows in my FX far more than the auto feeler in my F.

    It's one thing less that can break. But it was a good feature for reporters when every second counted. You can load the Rolleiflex about five seconds faster with the help of the auto-feeler.
