April 2021

Over the years the site has grown. In recent times it has grown a lot and some more pages are to follow. Browsing a large site with a smartphone can be difficult. On the small screen there is not much room for links and the links in the navigation bar have to be larger then links on a notebook or computer screen. Another thing is that a number of site visitors are only interested in a part of the site: repair shops, serial numbers or a specific line of cameras like the Rollei 35 or the TLRs. Each of the camera families now has its sub-site with domain name but the most popular pages - repair shops and serial numbers - also have direct links from the main site at For a while the sub-sites like and have existed next to a full main site but maintaining duplicate pages is rubbing up search engines the wrong way. I was forced to end that situation.

November 2020

New sub-menu in ‘Rolleiflex 6×6 TLR’. Practical Accessories with a number of new pages. Small pieces of existing texts have been moved. Rolleinar pages have been moved to the new sub-menu.

Acknowledgements and thanks


I am indebted to my friend Emmanuel Bigler for composing the Comparative Chart of Twin-Lens Cameras of Rolleiflex TLR models and for his kind permission to use photographs of various Rolleiflex models. I would like to thank Mr. Carlos Manuel Freaza for his assistance with the paragraphs on the coded serial numbers. As a matter of fact I used a few lines from his hand with permission. On a different public platform Mr. Jan Böttcher gave me a detailed explanation of the mysterious ‘index number’. Thanks again, Jan. I have used this information to clarify the suitability of the Magazine 4560. Mr. Karl Keung gracefully provided me with a number of photographs of his unique mint 2.8 E still having the original factory seals. Mr. Charles Lin gave permission to use his photo of a Rolleiflex 2.8 FX. To all of you, thank you very much!


To the Visitors of these pages: Thank you for visiting my site! I hope some of my enthusiasm for the Rolleiflex cameras is transferred to you. In photography nothing is more spectacular than looking down on the screen of a medium format camera like a Rolleiflex. Also a Rolleiflex TLR is much lighter than a bag full of 35 mm (‘full frame’) SLR stuff. Some of you contributed to these pages by bringing to my attention all kinds of errors and omissions. Thanks for your mail!
