How to use a Rolleimeter

Purpose: An optical coupled range finder for use with the direct view finder of the Rolleiflex particularly suitable when shooting sports or flash pictures in poor light,

Description: The Rolleimeter uses the superimposed image principle and is actuated by and coupled to the moving front panel of the camera. It is attached to the nameplate directly in front of the direct view finder. A vertical glass rod with focusing spot far the two images can be seen when lacking through the tinder. Focusing the camera by superimposing the two images so that the outlines exactly coincide insures sharp focus. Framing and focusing are accomplished while looking through the tinder, without making the eye train one position to another.

Before using the Rolleimeter two simple adjustments are required:

1. A one time adjustment of the actuating lever (screw a) to suit the focal length of the lens employed.

2. Adjustment of the lever button (screw b) so that the range finder indicates sharp focus at infinity (oo) when the camera is in focus at the same distance. This adjustment should be rechecked from time to time.

The Ciro-flex TLR

 

 

The Ciro-flex was a series of 6×6 TLRs made by the American manufacturer Ciro beginning circa 1941. All share a strong resemblance, with uncoupled red window film advance and Wollensak lenses & shutters. By using a slightly longer-than-normal 85mm focal length, sharpness in the corners of the 2¼×2¼-inch image remained adequate even with a less-expensive triplet lens design.

The earliest model A’s were built in Detroit, Michigan; and “ciro-flex” appears uncapitalized on the nameplate. Post-WWII production resumed with the models B ( with an Alphax shutter) and C (Rapax shutter). By 1947 the company had relocated to Delaware, Ohio.

  • Ciro-flex Model A
  • Ciro-flex Model B
  • Ciro-flex Model C
  • Ciro-flex Model D
  • Ciro-flex Model E
  • Ciro-flex Model F — the highest-spec Ciro-flex, it included an f/3.2, four-element Wollensak Raptar 83mm lens

After Graflex bought out Ciro’s camera lines, the Ciro-flex design continued with some minor changes as the Graflex 22.

Various Repair Manuals for Classic Cameras CLA

Here are the Instructions / Guides / Manual you may need on How to Repair / Restore / DIY / CLEAN, LUBRICATE, AND ADJUST

 

I am always passionate about film photography and classic film cameras, especially medium format twin lens reflex cameras. I have been self servicing and repairing my camera collection for quite a few years.

 

With a growing collection of cameras, over the years, I have also accumulated quite a big collection of camera repair guides and manuals. With these instructions, I managed to repair and service the majority of my cameras.

 

Majority of these materials were purchased either online or from camera repair shops. Its a big investment in time and effort.

 

 

Why spend hundreds of $ or even much more to get it serviced or repaired by camera shops?

 

Why not spend $9.99 and try it out by yourself first?

 

With proper tools and these manuals, you will sure be able to do it.
