    Rollei 35S Opening the camera

    After 10 years of lack of good camera , I bought Rollei 35 S Sonnar.
    I want to load film to camera but I couldnt open the puzzle.
    Does its bottom come off ? How would I do this ?

    Thank you ,

    Took me a while as well. Wait until you see your first roll of negatives, and try and figure out how you got upside down.

    You can download the Rollei manuals from here: http://www.butkus.org/chinon/rollei/..._35-splash.htm

    You got upside down trying to figure out where the battery is.

    I was always amused with the Rollei 35 cameras that the flash shoe for the dedicated flash was on the bottom and the flash below the lens, I can't imagine a worst place.

    With flash, after setting the camera & focusing, turn it upside down to shoot.

    Thanks.

    I bought this camera especially the skin colors at the dark.
    I never use flash with classic camera. My Leica 2F with Summitar 5 impressed me too much at bulb lights. I never saw a picture like it at any gallery , nowhere at the internet. It was extremelly similar to Rembrandt.
    I found that Lucian Freud started his carrier at similar date to Summitar.
    I think he mimics the same effect with paintings , from Leica.
    Thank you reminding this to me.
