Rolleiflex 2.8 F 1274, Photo F.W. Stutterheim
Photograph of the crank side of a late Rolleiflex 2.8 F. Note the strap hinges, used again on the FX and later models. Not on the GX. Un-lock button below the finder hood. Camera back hinge with un-lock handle in order to take off the back. The ‘ear’ is clearly visible below the frame counter but this camera has no 12/24 exposures switch.

Camera Production at the Rolleiflex Factory
The German PhotoScala Magazine made this short film not so long ago. Note the mixture of really old style and high-tech production tools. Anyway it is clear that all cameras are hand-made. Watch the TLR that is undergoing final testing of the film transport. It is held on a small wooden box lined with dark red velvet to protect the lenses. The velvet is so worn and its colour so ancient that the box could be pre-World War II and it was still in use. In 2003 a senior member of staff jokingly told me that the thing was a DIY job by old Mr. Heidecke himself (Reinhold Heidecke, 1881 - 1960, one of the founders of the company).
