rolleicord fanatics ??
i was wondering if any of you have rolleicords ...
i bought one last year that was beyond repair,
but i fixed it myself LOL ( don't ask )
i think i have a Ia model 3 ... any tips or suggestions you might have ?
i figure out how to reset the counter last night...
thanks in advance!
I found above link and it looks like my pictures taken with Rollei 35 S Sonnar 40 mm. When I use my camera with Kodak , I got these girlish colors and I switched to Leica. I could not agree with the colors of Rollei cameras. But I think lenses done with the BW in mind , try BW , Print dark and You will get something. I love Triotar lenses with BW and they cast a impressive quality , tones as much as I like it and results are relaxing not punching your face saying this is bw photograph.
I think you will get the same with this camera but it looks it needs a tripod and narrow aperture also.
Proving that it wasn't!

thanks umut !
those tones remind me of what i used to get
with a lubitel 66 ... a bit to vivid for my tastes as well ...
i will more than likely shoot it wide open, or nearly wide open ..
and only with black/white film ( or maybe a paper negative or two ) ...
i just loaded it with some plus x
then, in the coffee it will bathe ...
hi steve ---
all i have left to do is replace the GG
before i was gifted the lubitel i used a yashicamat 124g
which was a dream ( wish i still had it ! ) and this seems equally as easy to use / nice ..
plus ... it has that crazy counter reset button

You will be happy with BW. I want to add Triotar case that it looks like rotogravure newspaper prints. I like this effect very much. Camera is from the heyday of art , It feels like you are living at 20s 30s as seen as Hercules Poirot , Agatha Christie episodes. If I had that camera , I would proud with it very much.
I am still using Leica Mini Zoom and I am still waiting the clouds pictures been developed. If I like them , have it a go or buy a Rollei 35 with Triotar.
I use a rolleicord iii, and it sees a lot a action. It is my carry around camera. It is my secondary portrait camera, sometimes main depending on how im feeling. It is the camera i feel most confortable with. It sees all of my traveling work. I really love then lens on it. There is something about it. Its not sharp, its not punchy, its not dreamy, its just very mellow and at ease. She has seen the repair guy twice. One for shutter, second for transport.
I bought my Rolleicord Va, my first good camera, in January 1958. Still works great, despite over a half century, travel, never serviced. The lens is indeed nice for portraits. As well as pretty much everything else. Verichrome Pan was nice in it while it lasted, and Ilford ISO 100 now. Or the 400. I've got fancier cameras now, but have taken some of my best pictures with the Rolleicord.
I have to take the front off of mine to sort out a minor problem. Occasionally when winding the focus back to infinity, it gets stuck on something and dosesnt go all the way back. A tap on the side sorts it out so there must be something loose in there.
