Looking again at the lovely still photo:
The blue bulb does stand out, but looking more closely, I noticed
something else: there's no synch cord!
I have a vague recollection that the Rolleiflash mounting arm was
changed from a spring to a pre-loaded arm a long time ago.
Is that recollection correct or do I have it the other way around?
I still have the bayonet section from my 2.8c, bought in Hong Kong in
about 1954, and it doesn't have a spring. I bought a new bayonet
section to fit my 3.5F but still have the original flash assembly,
which incorporates a 22.5 volt BC pack.
The flash assembly is like new after I replaced the plastic part
which goes next to the bulb. It had burned black and melted a bit
over the years.
Got it from our friend up North, Todd Belcher.
