Rolleiflex 4.0 FW TLR Camera with 50mm f/4.0 Taking Lens

Twin-lens wide-angle Rolleiflex with 50mm f/4 Super-Angulon lens, ideal for landscape and indoor photography. It comes with lens cap, carrying strap and size IV filter bayonet.

Note: This camera comes standard with black leather covering and chrome plated metal trim work as the classic model.   The chromium-plated lateral edges of its back add to its elegant appearance, and the Rollei-flex logo at the front is exactly the same as that of Rolleiflex cameras of the nineteen thirties. The time-tried strap holders of earlier models have likewise been used again.

Special Note: The camera shown is covered with brown cowhide leather with embossed crocodile pattern as an example of a personal customized option. To configure your own personalized FW TLR, please select your desired options from the pull down menus, and write in the special notes box on your order, what leather color and what special text (one or two lines) you'd like engraved. Custom orders with identity plates or custom serial numbers can not be returned or exchanged - only serviced.
