Rolleiflex SL66 Set + 2 Lenses!

$1,679.00

Proud to offer this rare Rolleiflex SL66 6x6 medium format film camera set. It comes as shown with the body, 80mm lens, 150mm lens, lens hood, lens case and cap, viewfinder prism and is in good working condition.

Like the Rolleiflex TLR and the Hasselblad SLR, the SL66 uses 120 or 220 film to produce frames of 6×6 cm. It also incorporates several features that are unique or noteworthy in an SLR camera:

  • Reverse-mounting lenses. Most SL66 lenses (with the exception of the very wide or very long lenses) could be reversed and mounted to the camera without adapters, for use in close-up macro photography
  • Lens bellows to accommodate focusing when the lenses are reverse-mounted. Again, this is impossible for most SLR cameras without special adapters.
  • Lens tilt movement. The lenses could be tilted up to 8 degrees either up or down, to take advantage of the Scheimpflug principle, enabling greater depth of field, especially in close-up photographs.

The SL66 uses a focal-plane shutter, although several lenses were available in leaf shutters to enable much higher flash sync speeds.

Scarce chance to own one of these, and it's a beautiful original find.
