Rolleiflex 2.8 B, made in 1952 about 1000 units, slow shutter speed no longer works though :)
Mebbe I'm wrong but I thought it was the 2.8A that had only 1000 units made?

Send it to Andrew at Prime or Cam-X for repair. It should not be hard or expensive to fix the slow speeds - probably just needs a clean and lube. Gunk can seize up the slow speeds.

I a Rolleicord Vb series 1 on a regular basis - my favourite camera.

Just sold this beauty ;)



I still have a Rolleiflex Tessar and a 3.5F
Judging by the design of the WLF and the fact that the S/N is printed under the 'Rollicord' Name. It is a Va. yes?

I believe its the B that is quite rare since it is produced by the east german with the biometar lens.
Can you see that it reads 'biometer' around the lens in the pic?
I can't coz the words are so small in the pic.

It can't be a Vb mainly because of the design and dimensions of the WLF (in reference to the camera - the Vb WLF is removeable and thus wider) and the fact that S/N is under the 'Rolleicord' name. Vbs either had their S/Ns engraved on the top between the edge of the WLF and front of the camera or in the case of a latter production series 2 white face model, around the taking lens.

Ahh - sorry mixed your post up with the one of the Rolleicord Va pic by Singscott. I thought you were answering my question to Singscott about the Rolleicord pic that Singscott posted.

You are actually answering my earlier question to you. DOH! My bad.

A rare beast your 2.8B is indeed and nice.:thumbsup:

The GX meter readout isn't ideal for people with Green/Red colour blindness. :)
