Growing up, my dad had an old Rolleicord. I think he got it from his dad or brother – something like that. He kept it the way he got it – in a WWII 50 caliber ammunition case with the manuals and accessories. I remember the way the whole thing smelled like developer and glorious photo chemicals. It never saw much use, being a *real* manual camera and all, but I know he used it at least a handful of times. Anyway, after seeing some of my TtV stuff, my dad offered to send it up and now it’s mine! This is a seriously beautiful camera, as opposed to my crummy old Kodak. Made in Germany in the early 50s. According to the price slip that came with it, my Rolleicord III with the Schneider Xenar f/3.5 lens was worth $149.50. In 1952 dollars. I assume it still works (although my ability to operate it I wonder about) and I should have some results for you shortly!
