    Rolleiflex Automat Model 1 lens cover

    I am now the new owner of a resuccitated Rolleiflex Automat Model 1. It is distinguishable by having a double bayonet (I) on the taking lens only. Does anybody know if there is a single unit lens cover for this Automat or any suggestions? The viewing lens is 28.5mm and takes a push on hood but they seem scarce too. I need to protect the glass because the case is falling apart.

    If all fails, I guess a Bay 1 UV or other filter would do as a protection for the taking lens. The 28.5 push-on filters are a bit iffy to find. I think I may have a link to someone who at least last time I looked had some of them on sale. I'll put the link in the thread when I find it.

    I had (sold it about 6 months ago) the same model Automat and, luckily, mine came with the original lens cover. It was a one-piece stamped metal cover that had a small sliding locking lever between the upper and lower lenses. (the same locking mechanism that's on the lens cover for my MX Automat) Finding one will probably be difficult considering the Model 2 went to double bayonet lenese. Good luck.

    Try these for a start:

    http://www.manfredschmidt.com/rolleiaccess.html (he seems to have a few filters and maybe has a lens cover that fits)
    http://www.marriottworld.com/stock/filter4stock.htm (has 28.5 push-on lens hood, but maybe they have other things too)

    I have a one piece stamped cover on a Rolleicord with the slider but I thinnk this one needs both bayonets to fix properly. Tis a loose fit on the Automat since there isn't even a flange on the viewing lens

    Yep, I've got the same type of cover for my MX, fits both bayonet mount lenses. The one for my old Type 1 was smaller on top and fit the non-bayonet viewing lens, specfic for the Type 1.

    Thanks for the clarification r-brian. At least I know what I'm looking for now!

    I have the same type of camera, and you can see it on my avatar.
