Silver gelatin paper negative process. Developed and scanned. Rolleicord 1A TLR Taken as a test inside Gallery259 with this camera. Triotar Lens.

A bit of background...

One thing I have always wanted is a good TLR. I like the square frame and the waist level thang.......and they just have that feel. My Pentacon 6 is the same but the shutter timing has gone all weird....and am processing how to sort that......I shoots paper and I am okay wit that ......but I loved it with film. I have tried various cheap TLRs.Lubitel, Ricohflex, other Rolleicords but they have never really worked consistently, or not worked at all. BUT I love them. This 1A fell into my lap and these were a quick test with some paper before I finished my weekend @Gallery259.

Congrats on your Rolleicord.
In Braunschweig, the former Rollei's factory site, you may get service for these old ladies even today.
Just in case.... www.dhw-fototechnik.de/en/service-repairs.html
