Rolleiflex Twin-Lens Camera

Claims priority, application Germany July 11, 6 Claims. In cameras having a picture-taking chamber and a mirror reflex focusing view-finder chamber arranged above the picture-taking chamber in a common housing in other words, what is commonly known as a twinlens reflex camera , the image seen on the focusing screen does not always, because of parallax, agree in position with the image striking the film. It is consequently desirable to have a parallax compensation for the focusing viewfinder chamber so that the image appearing on the focusing screen is in the same position relative to thepicture area of the focusing screen, as the image produced by the taking lens is relative to the picture area or frame on the film. With a multi-format camera, of course, the amount of image shift necessary to compensate for parallax at any given focusing distance is the same for each of the formats, but is is difiicult to provide mechanism for automatically shifting the format mask to compensate for parallax, if the mask is placed in the usual conventional position on top of the ground glass focusing screen. An object of this invention is to provide a new and improved parallax compensation mechanism for mirror reflex cameras. Another object of this invention is to provide a new and improved parallax compensation arrangement for multi-format cameras of the type having a picture-taking chamber and a focusing view-finder chamber mounted one above the other in a common housing. A further object is the provision of a new and improved parallax compensation mechanism for mirror reflex cameras which is useful in providing parallax compensation for a variety of formats. A still further object is the provision of a new and improved parallax compensation mechanism for multiformat reflex cameras which is simple while yet being correlated with the placement of various format masks. These and other desirable. The following disclosure of the invention presupposes familiarity with the main constructional features of the Rolleiflex camera, and for those not already familiar with the construction of this camera, reference may be made to the book Rollei Photography, Handbook of the Rolleifiex and Rolleicord Cameras, by Jacob Deschin, published in by Camera Craft Publishing Company, of San Francisco, California.

Technical Details

It was a simpler, less expensive version of the high-end Rolleiflex TLR, aimed at amateur photographers who wanted a high-quality camera but could not afford the expensive Rolleiflex. Several models of Rolleicord were made; the later models generally had more advanced features and tend to be valued higher in today’s market. The first Rolleicord, introduced in November , was the Rolleicord I.

This camera was a simplified version of the Standard Rolleiflex, with a cheaper 75mm Zeiss Triotar lens and a simplified film advance mechanism using a knob instead of the crank found on the Rolleiflex. The Rolleicord I was available either with a plain leatherette covering or elaborately patterned metal faceplates.

When a camera is enclosed within such a supplementary protective housing to enable taking of pictures under water, it’is necessary, of course, to provide external control members accessible on the outside of the protective housing, for operating the various parts of the camera within the housing, such as the film winding mechanism, the shutter controls, etc. The number of separate control members passing through the wall of the protective housing should preferably be reduced to a minimum, since each control member extending through the housing wall presents an additional hazard of leakage of water into the housing.

The present application constitutes in part an improvement upon my copending application filed concurrently herewith, Serial No. An object of the present invention is to provide satisfactory and simple mechanism by which a filter or a supplementary lens may be held in either effective or ineffective position, as desired, on a camera located within a watertight protective housing, without requiring any special shaft passing through a wall of the protective housing, thereby reducing the ‘number of shafts which have to be sealed in a watertight manner.

Another object of the invention is the provision of means for holding a supplementary optical element such as a filter ,or a supplementary lens in such manner that it is shifted by gravity from effective to ineffective position, and vice versa, and is held in its selected position by gravity. Still another object is the provision of supplementary locking mechanism for locking the holder positively in either effective or ineffective position, as desired, which locking mechanism is controlled by another shaft which serves another control purpose, without requiring a separate shaft of its own.

Rolleicord Camera.

After my first encounters with the Rolleicord 1a — 2 — Model K3 a friend had given me as a present, I decided to take a closer look at this piece of fine engineering. What prompted me was that a Rolleicord was probably the first camera that my mother, Sieglinde Hefftner had used as a keen amateur and later as a professional photographer in the s. Digging through the family archives I came across some photographic evidence of her activities.

Some of the images I dug out show Sieglinde at work at the retouching desk of the lab, or at company parties of the photographic studio that she worked for.

Those who are not already familiar with such cameras may refer to the book Rollei Photography, Handbook of the Rolleiflex and Rolleicord Cameras, by Jacob.
