    Rolleiflex problem....

    Just got a 'new' ... that is my fathers old Rolleiflex ser. nr. 1283283 .. form 1952-1954 (not sure)....
    But when I load film in that camera, I can advance the the film, but the counter do not count...
    When I open the camera and press the take up spool, it do count. But when I close the camera, the counter do not work.....
    What do I do wrong......I already spoiled 1 film ... but I can experiment with that....

    erik... now in Canada at the moment

    Are you loading the film under the feeler bar?

    Glad to hear it. Please consider a CLA for such an oldie. A well-tuned Rollei is an absolute marvel.

    PS: On some older Rolleis the feeler bar action can be a bit sluggish. Generally I always advance the film smoothly and at only a moderate pace until the feeler bar kicks in. Good luck and enjoy!

    If you want to drop me a private message with your email, I have a PDF of the manual for the Rolleiflex Automat.

    Yours is one of my favourites. MX synch for flash but without the EV numbers.
    If it says Zeiss or Rollei, the answer is YES!
