Medium format film camera Rolleiflex 3.5F. The camera has a 6x6 frame size and uses 120 and 220 film rolls.
Cosmetically he camera is in good condition with moderate signs of use. The body has wear here and there but nothing critical. The self-timer looks being switched off inside, its lever just moves up and down freely. The light meter was not checked, not sure it`s working well. The waist level finder cap is closing not to the very end (seen in the photos 5 and 7).
The ground glass is clean. The taking lens is Xenotar 80mm f2.8 mm.The glass is very clear, without haze or fungus. The viewing lens is also clean and clear.
The shutter sounds well at all speeds, long are long and short are short (though I did not test them for accuracy). The aperture blades are free of oil and work as should. The main problem with the camera is that it does not switch to the 1st frame after film loading and so accordingly the shutter can not fire. The film just winds onto the taking spool until the end.I suppose it`s because of the damaged metal plate on the inner side of the film door (see the last photo) but I can not be sure. Anyway, the film door can also be replaced. Also, it does not focus to infinity (seems somebody who disassembled the camera assembled the focusing mechanics wrongly).
