Rolleiflex Twin-Lens Reflex Accessories—Are They Necessary?

A twenty-eight page OEM booklet detailing the line of accessories available for the legendary Rolleiflex Twin-Lens Reflex Camera System, including Rolleinar close-up lenses, filters and soft-focus lens, Penta Prism, Rolleikin 35mm adapter, Panorama and Tripod Heads, Rollei Mutar 1.5 x telephoto lens and Mutar 0.7 x wide-angle lens, Cut-film and Plate adapter, Underwater Housing, and more (circa 1963).

When you have read through these pages at leisure the answer is easy.

Everybody has his favourite subject: landscapes, portraits, close-ups, action shots, copying—right through the list to underwater photography. You already have the camera for all of these.

But to give your pictures the finishing touch you do need some accessories: for dramatic cloud effects with black-and-white pictures, delicate luminous outlines with portraits, or perfect color rendering in your slides.

If you are still more ambitious, you can take pictures under water, through the microscope, produce marvellous panoramas, use different focal lengths, release the shutter by remote control—and you can even project with your Rollei.

All this you can do with The Practical Accessories. The Rollei idea becomes a comprehensive photographic system: everything for one camera—one camera for everything.

Like the Rollei lenses, all optical accessories have an abrasion-resistant anti-reflection coating. Thus the considerably increased picture brilliance is maintained fully when using the lens accessories. A special double coating, individually adjusted for each filter color, enhances the filter effect for maximum contrast in the individual transmission range.

Rlollei lens attachments are available in the following bayonet mount sizes:

I (4 x 4)
: for the Rolleiflex 4 x 4
I (6 x 6)
: for 2¼ x 2¼” (6 x 6 cm.) Rollei cameras with Tessar, Xenar and Triotar lenses
: for 2¼ x 2¼” (6 x 6 cm.) Rollei cameras with Planar and Xenotar f/3.5 lenses and for the Rollei-magic
: for 2¼ x 2¼” (6 x 6 cm.) Rlolleiflex models with Planar and Xenotar f/2.8 lenses and with the Sonnar f/4
: for the 2¼ x 2¼” (6 x 6 cm.) Rolleiflex with the Distagon f/4.

Rolleiflex Lens Hood and Exposure Meter

The Lens Hood

The lens hood is useful and necessary if the lens is subjected to the influence of strong light sources and reflections (beach, water, snow, artificial light) or rain and water splashes. To be on the safe side, use it regularly.

Accessory Exposure Meter

Available in bayonet size I for Tessar, Xenar, or Triotar f/3.5. For most accurate results, an exposure meter should be firmly attached to the camera, with the exposure reading visible from the shooting position. These advantages are combined by the Rolleilux in a very practical way: the hinged exposure meter with the lens hood lets you make combined use of two accessories. Placed right beside the lens, it is conveniently in view at all times. While you are selecting your subject, the follow-up pointer determines exposure value and speed/stop combinations. Incident light measurements with diffusor are also possible. The gray or brown leather container, matching the camera case, is attached to the neck strap and keeps the Rolleilux handy at all times.

Built-in Exposure Meter

For Rolleiflex 2¼ x 2¼” designed for subsequent fitting. This item consists of nameplate with photo electric cell, measuring instrument (meter) and incident light diffusor. Installation is easy and simple. You can ask your dealer to do it for you.

Supplementary Rolleinar Lenses for Close-ups and Copying

With the Rolleinar lenses you can begin to explore the world of near subjects. The Rolleinars are supplementary lenses which fit in pairs in front of the camera lenses. in this way you can go below the normal near focusing limit and with a suitable set of Rolleinars get as close as 18”, 12½” or 9½” to the subject. You take the picture in the usual way, without any exposure in.crease, and observe the image and the field of view taken in on the focusing screen.

The Rolleinar on the finder lens automatically provides parallax correction. The reduced subject distance yields images up to one-third natural size. So a threefold magnification of the negative is sufficient to yield a same-size macro effect.

The Rolleinar lenses are available in three matched sets of pairs:

Rolleinar 1 for subject distances from 39½ to 17¾” (100 to 45 cm.), Rolleinar 2 for subject distances from 19¾ to 12?” (50 to 31 cm.), Rolleinar 3 for subject distances from 12½ to 9½” (32 to 24 cm.).

The Tele-Rolleiflex has a different focusing range, and two further Rolleinar sets are available for it:

Rolleinar 0.35 for subject distances from 9 to 4½ feet (280 to 135 cm), Rolleinar 0.7 for subject distances from 4½ to 3 feet (138 to 93 cm.).

Both these pairs of supplementary lenses have a twin mount with—in the case of the 0.35 set—an additional hinged fitting. In this way the normal focusing range of the Tele-Rolleiflex can be extended directly down to 4½ feet. Both these special Rolleinar sets have bayonet front mounting rings and can thus be combined with the normal Rolleinar sets 1, 2 and 3 to cover the same continuous close-up range.

With the Wide-angle Rolleiflex you can focus down to 2 feet (60 cm.) even without supplementary lenses. The Rolleinar set 2 (Bayonet mount size IV) extends the near focusing range down to 9½” (24 cm.).
