[rollei_list] Re: Rolleimeter

Allan,

Well, Carlos filled in most of the gaps by now. He lives in a different time 
zone. I would like to add just a few things. The Rolleimeters were made for 
cameras with the non-detachable hoods only. So they will not fit any camera 
with the later detachable hood. There are 4 possible combinations: 3.5, 2.8 and 
without lightmeter, with lightmeter. The older ones are for cameras without the 
lightmeter. Obviously they lack the slot for the lightmeter. They have serial 
numbers from 1000 - 3999. The swing arms are clearly marked either "3.5" or 
"2.8". The 3.5 is made for the Rolleiflex 3.5 / 3.5A from nr. 1.100.000. These 
cameras should be calibrated by the alternative method without using the disc. 
The 3.5B can be calibrated using the disc. The 2.8 is made for the Rolleiflex 
2.8C. The disc can be used.

Later models have the slot for the lightmeter. No serial numbers. The swing 
arms are clearly marked. The 3.5 was designed for the Rolleiflex 3.5C but this 
one will fit earlier mentioned 3.5 cameras. Disc can be used. The 2.8 was 
designed for the 2.8E but will fit earlier mentioned 2.8 cameras.

Mine is a 2.8 with slot. Unfortunately I had to settle for an F-type Rolleiflex 
;-) so I have not actually used the Rolleimeter.

Ferdi.
