The Rolleicord III is a model in a long line of Rolleicords which started in 1933 and ended in 1977 and were produced by Franke & Heidecke and later on by Rollei-Werke in Braunschweig, Germany.
The Rolleicord III was produced from 1950 till 1953. About 87.000 units were made.
It is a medium format TLR camera that uses 120 type Rollfilm. 12 6x6cm square images can be captured for each roll of 120 film.
By using an optional Rolleikin 1 adapter 35mm film cartridges can be used.
There is also a Plate adapter available which gives one 6x6 image on a 6.5x9cm size glassplate or filmsheet.
Major differences with its predecessor, the II, is a new construction of the viewer hood with provisions for a Rolleikin mask, a new lock mechanism of the back and the use of a mark inside the camera for the film start instead of a red window.
The III's are equiped with either a Schneider-Kreuznach Xenar 1:3.5 75mm or a Zeiss Triotar 1:3.5 75mm lens. Viewing lens is a Heidoscop-Anastigmat 1:3.2 75mm. Before both lenses is a Bayonet mount Size 1 for filters, lens hood, etc..
The shutter is a Deckel Compur-Rapid X/CR00 offering speeds from 1 till 1/500 second, a B setting and X flash-synchronisation.
This one is fitted with a Schneider-Kreuznach Xenar 1:3.5 75mm lens.
The Camera is in very good vintage condition and working well. Shutter fires on all speeds. Aperture and focusing is smooth. Viewfinder is very clear. There is no fungus, Scratches or dust on the taking lens. Film advance and the counter is working fine.
one of the little leg on the bottom is missing(please see pictures).
