Re: [Rollei] Rollei A110


my recommendation: buy the S27PX cell. The A110 uses a Si 
cell and an electronic circuit to calculate exposure. It 
should be the same situation as with the 35 SE where 
a 'voltage regulator' makes up for voltage differences to 
some extent. To find out more I have connected my A110 to a 
regulated voltage supply and played with the voltage. When 
reducing the voltage from 6 volts, the green LED becomes 
dimmer, but even at 4 volts (with the LED almost dark) the 
shutter seemed to work all right. I did not check with a film 
though, but this could now be your part...
