Used - High "D" 1st Generation Focusing Screen for Rolleiflex 6000/Hy6/SL66 cameras

The first generation High "D" screens used the same patented Minolta focusing screen technology as in the Hasselblad Acute Matte screens. These screens have cast blanks with the words Top and Oben printed on the sides.  They have the split prism rangefinder focusing aid and faint scribe marks for the 645 crop in either orientation.  The 1st generation High D screens are brighter than the gridded screens but the 2nd generation screens are about 1/2 stop brighter than the 1st gen.  However some people swear that the 1st Gen were easier to nail focus with.  I think it depends on your own eyesight and what you shoot which will work better for you. 1st Gen High D screens are considered to be better than the Brightscreens and Oleson. 

Condition is used in good condition with two scratches that show up as darker lines off center.    The picture of the screen in my 6008AF body is the actual screen being sold.  The screen is packaged in the plastic clamshell case in the 2nd picture.  

Note: The screen will NOT fit your older TLR camera - but it will fit the following cameras:

Fits:

  • SL66 - all models
  • 6001, 6002, 6003, 6006, 6008 all models
  • Hy6, Hy6 Mod2 all models
  • Panshot and Rollei made sliding back adapters for X-Act2

Will NOT fit

  • 2.8E, 2.8F, 3.5E, 3.5F, C's, D's, Automats, Rolleicords, most older TLR's.

Tips: Focus screens are easily damaged. Please hold only by the edges.  Installation is by carefully pulling back the screen frame and lifting up.  The screen will slide into the frame behind the little finger tabs.  Most reflective side faces up toward you, the most diffuse side down toward the mirror.  Never try to wash the focusing screen. You will not need to calibrate your camera by changing the focus screen.  You can have several and use the one best suited for the job.  

Focusing screens are sold as is, not returnable
