Rolleiflex 2.8 FX TLR Camera with 80mm f/2.8 S-Apogen Lens

This is the legendary twin-lens mirror reflex camera with 80mm f/2.8 Planar HFT coated lens, lens cap, carrying strap, and size III filter bayonet.

The camera is covered with brown cowhide leather with embossed crocodile pattern. The chromium-plated lateral edges of its back add to its elegant appearance, and the Rolleiflex logo at the front is exactly the same as that of Rolleiflex cameras of the 1930’s. The time-tried strap holders of earlier models have been used again.

Note: This camera is available with custom appearance options, including choice of leather color and metal trim plating (chrome, gold, or platinum). Price shown is for classic version as described above and shown in the first two pictures. Images of the camera in other configurations are shown as examples.  If you wish to purchase a custom version please contact me and I'll assist you through the process.  Custom cameras are built to order and take approximately 8 weeks for delivery.  Custom orders with identity plates or custom serial numbers can not be returned or exchanged - only serviced.
