Camera Details:

The Rolleiflex 2.8F Type 1, predating the "early type 2" comes equipped with the classical Planar 80/2.8 lens. The legendary Planar 80/2.8 lens, will capture every nuance with astonishing precision, from the softest highlights to the richest shadows. Whether you're a portrait artist or a landscape enthusiast, this lens opens up new dimensions in your photography!

While the photos depict the current excellent condition of the camera (each personally preselected), the final condition will be enhanced during the meticulous restoration process. The result is a rejuvenated camera with a fresh appearance and smooth operational feel.

Rebuilding Process:
The camera will undergo a comprehensive rebuilding and re-adjustment process that goes beyond the standard "CLA" (Clean, Lubricate, Adjust). Every internal detail and setting is meticulously examined, returning them to factory conditions or even surpassing them with modern instruments. All functions are tested, parts cleaned, updated if needed, lubricated, and readjusted, guaranteeing precise and smoother-than-factory performance.
The focus is set to the film plane and rigorously tested on a special stand to ensure excellent focusing accuracy.

Lens Condition:
Both lenses (viewing and taking) are in remarkable condition for their age. They undergo thorough cleaning during the restoration process, ensuring optimal performance.

Focusing screen: a new PRO ultra-bright screen will be installed during the rebuild process.
