    The reflector does indeed tilt up.
    Up to 90 degrees with click stops in between at 45 and 60 (i guess) degrees.

    I like these small 32 CT-3 units, and use them myself, with the appropriate SCA foot, for the same purpose you say you want them for.

    They are small, cheap, support SCA 300, and pack enough punch (only 1 stop less than the Metz 45 CL-4).
    Do you know if the 32 ZT-1 also takes a SCA adaptor?

    Can you attach a Rolleiflash 2 to a 2.8FX?
    It is of course much more attractive and fitting to the whole style of the Rolleiflex, but I would worry about diffusion.

    I am seriously looking into the Rolleiflash 2 and one unit I've found says it fits bay 3 lenses, such as those of the 2.8FX. Can I use it (sans TTL ofcourse)?

    The FX doesn't have a bulb synch setting. Flash bulbs take a bit longer to fire off I think. Maybe you would have to keep your shutter speed down to a 60th or something. ?

    I have one. It can be tilted up to 45° but of cause only if it is attached upright.

    Ari,
    I've had a 40MZ-2 advertised for a while, just took the ad down a few days ago.
    It's larger than the 32 and the head will both pivot on the horizontal axis and the flash tube assembly will pivot vertically. It also has a small flashtube beneath the main tube.
    It uses the 310x modules for ttl. I don't know if this would help out or not.
    Heavily sedated for your protection.

    John, I've sent you a PM,
    but I would like to post this concern of mine in public:

    - Any flash unit that fits on the hot shoe or the Rollei SCA adaptor may pose a problem with the focus knob.

    I am not so much concerned with the height of the unit, as I will be using it with a bounce and the head tilted upwards, but I am afraid that the flash body may block the focus knob and may make the focusing much harder which will go against the main purpose of the flash, that it is to be a fill-in accessory for street photography.
    So, its actual size and position to the knob is very important.

    There was an ad running here several months ago for a company that would take the old bulb flash units and put in modern electronic strobes so that you have the old style look with the newer convenience and no waste from used bulbs. Seemed like a delightful idea to me for those that want to preserve the atmosphere that a working old camera can provide.
