    Rolleinar Rattle

    I received a rolleinar today. The lens in the heidosmat has a slight rattle. I unscrewed it and took the lens out. There's a thin washer on top. I put everything back together and screwed it down. It rattles less but it still rattles.

    Are these meant to be taken apart with fingers or should it be tighter? Is a slight rattle normal?

    Thanks,

    Most all of my Rollei filters (colored and close up) rattle. Nothing to worry about unless you feel the glass is going to fall out.

    A filter glass is typicall not that demanding for positioning than a lens element.

    (To my understanding a Rolleinar is a lens.)

    I suppose that you mean a close up Rolleinar for a TLR since you mention "Heidosmat" which is the finder lens of the TLR. This is always a set of two Rolleinars. In the upper one there is a glass wedge for compensating the parallax between the two lenses (the so called "Rolleipar Keil"). This wedge has to be inserted in correct orientation, otherwise you'll have a finder picture different to that on the film. The second lens has no wedge and is for the taking lens.

    Yep that's the filter I'm talking about. The compensating wedge. It's got a slight rattle when I shake it. I'm just waiting for someone t say, "Then don't shake it."

    "Then don't shake it". Seriously.

    Ya, I just wanted to know whether to send it back or not. But it sounds like it's normal. So I'll stop shaking it now.
