Buying cameras on internet auctions sites is always a bit risky, but last week the risk paid off and I got a beautiful Rolleiflex K4A Automat really cheap. I think its possibly the nicest camera I’ve ever used. In terms of design everything is functional and well thought out. In practice it’s so small you can easily hide it under a coat and the shutter is almost totally silent, but at the same time it produces huge and beautiful 6×6 negatives. While its easy to hide its also a pretty good conversation starter, during a brief walkabout on Friday to test it out several people approached me and asked me about it. One of them thought it was for show and couldn’t believe it was actually a working camera (!?) Anyway here are a few photos from the first roll:
