The Rollieflex TLR Camera Revisted

B&H’s Explora Magazine has a nice article about the old Rollieflex TLR camera

If you’ve every held one or got to photograph with one, you’ll know what they mean when they say how solidly built these are and how they feel good in your hands.

They do.

The mechanical precision that describes how nicely the camera seals itself without the need for foam or felt strips is an indicator of very high manufacturing tolerances. You can feel this when you use the camera. And, photographing a square composition, shooting from the waist is a real kick.

Yeah, if you  have one, maybe think about taking it out of storage and getting it cleaned?
