Rolleicord Va TLR Camera SOLD

ROLLEICORD Va – Model K3E (Type 2)
PRODUCT ID: MF.110703

OVERVIEW
Rolleiflex has always been the benchmark of quality in the TLR category. Famed for rugged construction and top-notch optics from Schneider or Carl Zeiss, they are truly excellent options to consider for the “deep-pocketed”.
If you don’t print bank notes yet insist on quality, Rolleicord is the answer.
This Rolleicord Va possesses the legendary Rollei quality and many of the features found in later Rolleiflex’s, but missing the exorbitant price tag. This camera has the 75mm Xenar f3.5 lens (coated), MX flash sync, EVS, self timer, etc. The only downside (if you can call it a downside) is that you must manually cock the shutter.
[Rolleiflex’s have an advance crank that advances the film and cocks the shutter simultaneously = no multiple exposures!?]
Performance of the Rolleicord Va is outstanding. Lens provides excellent negatives that are sharp and contrasty.
An optional accessory, known as a Rolleikin kit, was available for the Rolleicord to enable it to accept 35mm film.
