Rolleiflex 4x4, Photo F.W. Stutterheim
Photograph of Ferdi‘s Postwar Black 4 by 4 Rolleiflex with its dedicated lens hood. Around 4500 Black cameras were made. The shutter release button is like the Rolleiflex T. The red digits around the shutter are the Exposure Values. Note that the camera has no serial number on the top of the Rolleiflex name shield. Perhaps the original was replaced for a spare shield.
