Rollei B35

Rollei B35

My buying this camera was, like being married for a second time, a triumph
of optimism over experience, because of three different Rollei models that
I have used, two let me down almost immediately. This one was similarly
treacherous inasmuch as, after going through the motions of rewinding its
first film the usual 30 turns, it transpired that the feeble rewind knob
was slipping, and upon opening the camera, I found the film still wrapped
around the take-up spool. Attempts to improve the base locking device have
also failed and it will not now latch at all. This is the first and quite
the last camera of this make that will ever find its way into my collection,
so if any viewer would like to see this sitting on their shelf, looking good
but capable of working only after some attention, please make me an offer.

I am interested in your camera B 35, if the price is OK , and the camera is undamaged.

Sorry to hear about your problems with the B35. I've had one for years and taken loads of pictures with it, although the film loading and rewinding was always a tremendous fiddle.
