    Just to wrap this up, the camera is fine. I loaded and unloaded in a darkened hallway and both rebate strips were clear. I also didn't wrap as much paper onto the uptake spool, before closing the door, as I did the first time.

    Thanks all!

    You may see various small amounts of rebate fog with your Rollei from time to time. I think it is just difficult to do everything right all the time;
    Keep the load and rewind in the dark, keep the paper tight when doing both, etc. It's a kind of primitive system, if you think about it. Just work on your technique.
    I have a 3.5T that occasionally has fogging up into the first frame or two, and I never know why.

    Hi Kenton, the Rolleiflex has automatic advancing to the first frame by means of two rollers between which the film is loaded, a unique Rolleiflex feature. It's why the guy in the video didn't have to advance the film up to the index marks, which you have to do with every other TLR I know.

    tessar - my 3.5T doesn't take the film between the rollers (it doesn't have 2 rollers, I have to reference the arrows on this camera), but the 3.5F I have does. I don't think all Rolleis have the double roll system.
