Two Photos From My Rolleiflex Camera

1 year 9 months ago #653904 by thephotoman
Awhile back I bought a Rolleiflex camera on eBay for $250 but I wanted to test it to see if it works. The good news is that is does. I used Kodak Tmax 200 film with it. I did however add some contrast to the photos in Photoshop because they were somewhat flat. I used thedarkroom.com to process and scan the film.

Fun to use a TLR (Twin Lens Reflex). You might want to try using 400 speed film indoors using the existing light. If I'm taking pictures indoors I've sometimes opened all the shades/curtains (and tried for a sunny day), turned on all the lights, etc. Hope you enjoy your camera!

Actually it was 400 speed film. I typed the wrong number.

A classic performer to be sure.  This was my father's favorite camera.  He unloaded his Hasselblad 1000F on me, preferring the Rollei.  That Hasselblad was one of the worst cameras I ever used.
