Royflex III

Jump to: navigation, search

The Royflex III was made by Royer from 1954 to 1958. It was the last in a series of Royflex TLR models for 6×6cm exposures on 120 rollfilm. It has a SOM Berthiot 7.5cm f/3.5 taking lens in a Royer shutter and an Anastigmat f/2.8 viewing lens. The crank wind advances the film and cocks the shutter (earlier models had a knob wind). The shutter release lever can also be used to cock the shutter for double exposures. Focussing is by geared rotating lenses with a distance scale engraved on the mount of the viewing lens. There are two flash sync terminals, one marked F and the other marked X.

There is a square optical finder in the hood that has a vertical rectangular frame line in the glass that shows the view when exposing Kodak Bantam 828 film. A kit for using this size film, 28×40mm, was supplied.[1] There is a red window on the back for setting the first 120 frame position and for using 828 film.
