ROLLEI 35 GERMANY ZEISS 3,5/40 CLASSIC ANALOG 1,5 VOLT
One of the absolute classic timeless superbly designed cameras of the analog aera, the Rollei 35 series.
Perfectly manufactured with metal body, mechanic shutter, compact design, top performing Zeiss lens.
This camera series was a cooperation between 3 of the leading german manufacturers: Body and technique by Rollei (design by Heinz Waaske), lens by Carl Zeiss West Germany, lightmeter by Gossen.
One of Rolleis 2 biggest commercial exits ever, for good reasons. Collapsible ultrasharp Zeiss lens for flat dimensions for transport, filter mount for filters or lens shade. Apertures presectable until 22. Minimum focusing distance is 90cm. Fully mechanical shutter with speeds 1/2 to 1/500th + B; integrated lightmeter. Tripod mount, flash shoe and film counter on bottom; cable release thread in shutter release button.
Here the version Rollei 35 made in Germany; not a hint better than the Singapore version, but much more popular with the customers....
Filtermount E24. Lightmeter not shown in finder, but on upside of camera body by needle; so fine also for control when shooting from the hip or from the tripod.
To YOUR ADVANTAGE: Overwhauled at service-center and lightmeter changed to 1,5 volt for use of cheap and easily avalable modern battery 625 U (as you might know, the old original batteries 625PX with 1,35 Volt are not available any more since 2001, because of mercury). Saves you easily about 100-140 Euro against the "cheap" offers of other sellers with texts as "found in the garage" or "my grandpa has made fantastic pictures with it, but I have no idea of cameras, sorry" and similar texts...Where the usually necessary repairs are (in order of commonness): Sticky shutters from not using, defect lightmeters, missing or wrong body screws, leaked-out batteries. Plus well-hidden and not described dents on corners, and of course practically never modified to 1,5 Volt for modern battery use.
Early specimen made in Germany, with rectangular opening lever, and finder window 17x11 mm !
Furthermore in DREAM near to like new condition and with original blue box.
Camera is presently for the present service/modifying to 1,5 Volt in the service-center, and can be shipped from about 10th january on.
