Re: [Rollei] Vintage of various Rolleiflex GX Models ?


Another difference between models 1 and 2 is the strap. Model 1 has 
hinges near the back of the camera. The camera is a bit unbalanced that 
way. Not a big issue. I am using this model for many years. The strap 
is the one of the SL 66. The "hooks" are not very comfortable to use.

Model 2 has the hinges in the traditional position in the middle. It 
has the SLX/6000 strap. Only with the 2.8 FX Rollei returned to the 
traditional and superior "crocodile" straps.

A cosmetic difference is the battery cover on the focusing knob. Neatly 
concealed with the appearance model 2. Clearly visible on model 1.
