    Rollei accessoies source?

    I just bought a Rolleicord Vb, c.1962. Needless to say there's no local supply of accessories. I'm just looking for the basics- strap, bay 1 lenshood, yellow filter, lenscap, that sort of thing. Can any TLR people direct me to a dealer who (still) carries any of that stuff, new or used? (I'm trying to avoid ebay.)

    Mark,

    I bought most of my Rollei accessories from KEH. May not be the cheapest way to go, but the stuff was in excellent condition.

    One source is www.collectcamera.com. Not cheap, either, but they have a good selection of accessories and parts for the Rolleis. Another one is http://www.vintagecameras.co.uk/.

    eBay has been a good source of Rollei accessories for me. One must be patient and persistent, however.

    I just discovered that Ken Hansen is still trading in Rolleiflex cameras and accessories. Ken closed his shop on Madison Avenue a few years ago after a career of provisioning the likes of Richard Avedon with Rolleiflexes (and Leicas and Hasselblads and every other expensive camera you can name) -- I bought my first Rolleiflex from Ken.

    I contacted Ken a couple of weeks ago at his email address and was happily surprised to find that he is still around, and still dealing in cameras and accessories via the internet. I was writing for a Rolleinar, and he seemed to have an ample supply. He is not cheap, but he is reliable, and he occupies a place in NY photographic history. Ken's email address:

    Thanks everyone! I spent a lot of money at Ken Hansen's store, back in the '80s. (At least it seemed like a lot at the time.) I should have thought of KEH too. The 1st roll of film thru the camera looks good, I found batteries for the old Luna-Pro, so now I have a new walk-around kit. Soon tobe a complete kit!

    Manfred Schmidt

    Another great source is Manfred Schmidt. Decent prices and a personal touch. He's very knowledgeable and has a wide selection of other types of vintage cameras and accessories.
