    Rolleicord question

    Hi
    I have been offered a Rolleicord I think its a III or a IV, but it has no hood and hasn't been used for 10-15 years but he says the speeds work.
    My local camera dealer has a II (1949) on which the speeds are kaput. My question is can I put the hood from the earlier camera onto the later body?
    I seems to have 4 small screws attaching it to the body.
    Thanks
    Mark

    I've been switching hoods a bit back and forth between different models of the Rolleicords and as far I have done it, they're interchangeable.

    Yes it should work, then get the one with the bad shutter serviced so you have another camera to use.

    I scrounged a bunch of stuff when I was thinking about fixing up my Art Deco Rolleicord I. A lot of it is forum conversations from various sites that I converted to PDF. Most, I think, has to do with shutter repair since mine is in good shape except for the slow shutter. PM me your e-mail address and I'll zip it all up and send it over to you.

    This is a quick and effective solution for your slow shutter problems with the 'deco.

    It does not involve lighter fluid (not pure enough for these delicate mechanisms, as it leaves a residue).

    It does not involve bathing the shutter unit (a practise which will remove all factory lubricant)

    It does not require a major strip down to re-lubricate (perhaps only required in the very worst cases)

    It has proved successful in virtually all shutters with ‘sticking’ slower speeds.

    This method (given for the Compur found in a Rolleicord Art deco) is simple, works and can be found here: http://www.pbase.com/raynerj/repair

    Beware: Isopropyl aclohol contains water... a very bad thing for shutters.
