Rolleiflex 2.8E-2 TLR {Camera Review}

Rolleiflex 2.8E-2 TLR {Camera Review} | The Romance of Analogue | Scoop.it
Rolleiflex 2.8E-2

Do you desire a camera that makes your subject want their picture taken??
If so, you should pick up a Rolleiflex. I've actually had people stop me in
the streets to ask about the Rolleifex that I had around my neck. It's that
interesting.

The Rolleiflex isn't all show either, coupled with a 6x6 film negative and
an amazingly sharp Zeiss Planar 80mm f/2.8 lens, this camera is a beautiful
image making machine!

History

The Rolleiflex TLR film cameras were best known for their exceptional build
quality, compact size, modest weight, superior optics, durable, simple,
reliable mechanics and bright viewfinders. They were popular and widely
imitated. The high-quality 8 cm focal length lenses, manufactured by
Zeiss and Schneider, allowed for a smaller,lighter, and more compact camera
than their imitators. The highly regarded Zeiss Planar f2.8 and Schneider
Xenotar lenses, both 80mm focal length and fast in comparison, are both
state of the art optics.

Unique to the Rolleiflex Automat and letter model cameras, the mechanical
wind mechanism was robust and clever, making film loading semi-automatic
and quick. This mechanism started the exposure counter automatically,
auto-spaced the 12 or 24 exposures, and tensioned the shutter; all with
less than one full turn of the film advance crank. This makes the
Rolleiflex Automat/Letter model cameras very sought-after for shooting fast
paced action, such as street photography. 

The Rolleiflex Chimney viewfinder and the Prism viewfinder.

A wide range of accessories were for made this camera system: panorama
head, sun shade, parallax-corrected close-ups lenses, color correction,
contrast enhancing, and special effect filters, all mounted with a quick
release bayonet, as well as a quick-change tripod attachment.

Some amateur and fine-art photographers still shoot Rolleiflex TLR film
cameras with color transparency, color negative, or black-and-white film.
The later f2.8 and f3.5 letter models (Planar or Xenotar lens) are highly
sought after in the used market, and command the greatest price. Rolleiflex
TLRs are still manufactured in Germany by DHW Fototechnik.

MIDORI TRAVELER'S NOTEBOOK

MIDORI TRAVELER'S NOTEBOOK | The Romance of Analogue | Scoop.it
We love the Midori Traveler’s Notebook for the feel of the leather, the refillable high quality notebooks and the plastic inserts that help us organize our life just a bit better. We’d rather write our thoughts and ideas in a notebook, than type them on our pda or iPhone. Because we like our own handwriting, to encircle words for that extra emphasis and draw little doodles for all that we can’t verbalize.
