Dating rolleicord cameras executive romances executives dating loving woman
I also have a MX-EVS and a couple of Yashichas, a 124G and a 44. I carefully placed it in my "museum" (which is really just a bookcase with all my old cameras - with a glass door to keep out the dust).
I never tried to use it, but after I got the retro-bug I tried various places to see if I could get it serviced.
Nobody would touch it (they do Flexes but not Cords).
Rolleiflex is a series of medium format 120 roll film cameras manufactured by Franke & Heidecke, in Germany.
It came with the Schneider-Kreuznach Xenar 75mm f/3.5 coated taking lens and Heidosmat 75mm f/3.2 viewing lens. The Rolleicord III also came with a Zeiss Triotar variation, I'm not sure if that was cheaper or more expensive, but my guess is that it's the former (a simple triplet, guessing by the name).
They retained the same twin-lens design and excellent leaf shutters of their more expensive siblings. No base studs, no back studs, no spirit level, small focusing knob .237601 .
