And here's where it turns a little self-indulgent ... I actually own two(!) of them - one nicely overhauled, one mostly functional, but a tad capricious. Anyhow, it's a really enjoyable camera to shoot with - provided it's not faulty and/or acting up (you can work around most common issues, though - if you know what they are). I plan on shooting mine *a lot* once my (already much smaller!) backlog of undeveloped film is cleared out. That said, the Rolleiflex now offers serious competition for a compact setup (i.e. a Pentacon Six TL with the 80mm lens and waist level finder) - comparing them head to head will be fun ...

Somehow I lack the affinity for this kind of holiday kitsch. Only way out: isolation and reduction ... the result is still no art.

What a COOL camera.
Poor man's Hasselblad.
But obviously it has a lot to recommend it, in and of its own right.
