    Welcome. Rolleiflexes are my favorite cameras.

    Sounds like a very early Automat Type 1. I have one too. Later AUtomat type ones added a shutter release lock.
    Beautiful camera - nothing better than a Rolleiflex.

    I always thought Mamiyaflexes were sexy.

    You might find a LED bulb to be better than CFL; it doesn't need to warm up to function consistently.
    Yeah, I'm going to experiment a bit. If I can find a suitable bulb in LED, that'd be wonderful; I'm going to wait until I have my hands on the enlarger and see what I'm really working with before I make any final decisions.

    That reminds me; since it doesn't have a viewing lens bayonet attachment, do I have any hope of using something like a Rolleinar with any level of effectiveness? Some trick I could use maybe? I imagine I'll be wanting to get in close from time to time, and was wondering if my hands are tied in that regard...
