Great pic, Terence.

Great lens, the Tessar. I used a similar camera, Yashica, I believe, and after getting the best I could from it and not satisfied with the quality, I saved up and bought a Hasselblad 500c/m with a Tessar lens. The sharpness and detail of the prints was unbelievable. Also did my own processing, b/w and colour. Great memories. Many thanks.

Very nostalgic. Two of my husbands friends each had one of these so we didn't need the services of a wedding photographer when we married. Superb photos from them.

Rolleiflex twin lens camera, German made Franke-Heidecke top camera of it's day. The Wigan Observer photographers used the Rolleiflex Rellei Reflex twin lens cameras in the 1960s. Top quality pictures crystal clear.
