THIS IS THE PRE-ORDER for a very very special rebuild

Appr. finishing date : 15-04-2023

Rolleiflex 2.8F type 3 with 5-elements Schneider Kreuznach Xenotar 80/2.8 lens with great contrast and amazing 3D pop.

This rebuild is the pure synergy between latest 2.8F model with the most improved Xenotar 80 lens version and ability to use it with the flat glass back and flat glass insert for maximum image quality! The special part of this project is that originally it was not possible to install the flat glass insert into the 2.8F type 3, Rollei eliminated this option after early type 2 due to the complexity of this technology and decided to go more conventional way with the standard film back.

The flat glass insert is the best way to keep your film absolutely flat over the entire surface (like a sensor) and you also get a constant film position and flatness for every single shot without any tolerances in the film channel! The same technology was also possible for 220 type film on Vacuum Film Insert for Contax 645 but with this 2.8F it´s also possible for 120 film type.
It´s amazing technology if you use to scan your film and able to keep the flat glass dust free by using an air blower by every film change, some accuracy and retouching is required but you will be rewarded with amazing incomparable quality.

It´s relatively easy to remove the flat glass plate to clean underneath (if needed) or to remove completely to use the camera in the standard modus without the flat glass (for that purpose the pressure plate of the back must be switched to the 6x6 mod).
Another important aspect is that you will able to see where the flat glass ends on the negative (the edge will be visible on top and bottom part of the negative).

It also comes with a mint/new flat glass back door which is extremely rare nowadays, especially in that condition, it could be found on eBay right now for almost 550 USD for the back in that condition only.

Please notice, the current condition is really mint but the final condition of the camera will be improved during the rebuild (the current condition is shown in the images) what gives every rebuilt camera even better look and operating feeling.


The camera will be completely rebuilt and re-adjusted

(The amount of work is greater the the usual overall "CLA", I check out the complete camera and take it fully apart, bring all the internal parts and adjustments back to the factory condition or even improve the factory settings, test all functions, clean, renew, re-lubricate, and readjust the whole camera), therefore all functions work accurately and even smoother than from the factory, the focus is adjusted to the film plane and also film tested on the special stand for excellent focus accuracy.

Working adjusted accurate meter.

Comes with the new updated screen:

+ ultra-bright screen with the same brightness and quality as the "acute matte d" on the Hassy or "High-D screen" on hy6 (easy to focus even if you have problems with focusing)



Please notice, I don´t provide next-day shipping!
Delivery is carried out in approximately 4-5 days after the receipt of the order.
