Re: [Rollei] Rolleiflex MX (Automat model 4)


I believe that you have missed the point
about the Rolleifix.  It's purpose is not
to support the entire back, but to clamp
the back to the solid chassis of the camera
body.  It is a very well engineered piece
of equipment.

I still marvel at the design and engineering
of the TLR Rolleis, and I've been using
them for over half a century.
