Re: [Rollei] Tele Rolleiflex


The main problem is close focusing. The Tele-Rollei focuses down to 260
cm.This is not close enough for a tight head shot. You will need a Rolleinar
0,35 to focus down to 130 cm. I am not taking portraits on a regular basis,
but I have done it occasionally. It works, but there are easier ways to take
portraits. A rolling studio tripod will be very helpfull too.

Please find information on distances, etc. here:
