Film Transportation: winding lever with auto stop, film pressure plate. Lever also cocks the shutter. Double exposure prevention.
It has a detachable hinged back with exposure guide.
Can use 35mm film with the addition of Rolleikin 1 adapter set.
All mechanical controls tested. Lenses are clear and bright with very minor internal dust, better then expected with a camera of this age.
The shutter speed all seem correct and the aperture works as it should.
The viewfinder is clean and bright with cross screen and close focus pop-up lens. The spring loaded hood opens cleanly and closes easily.
Includes a lovely stitched original leather case, again in good condition with just minor marks from use.
This camera has been well looked after by the original owner although with clear signs of being well used.
The only faults I can find are the self timer does not work (no great loss) and the focus hood has a slight dent, resulting in the mirror beneath being cracked. This could probably be easily replaced, but as it’s only for eye-level viewing, which doesn’t show the whole screen, it is of limited use. Also the winder has brassing wear from use.
All in all, a good example of a usable vintage camera.
