This shot was taken with a very old Rolleiflex twin-lens-reflex (TLR) camera that had the f/3.5 Xenotar lens on it. These old Rolleis are still very capable machines. That said, after a few outings with this Rollei, I was sufficiently impressed by the classic design to invest in a "newer" Rollei TLR, model GX, which has a build-in, behind-the-lens light meter and also has the famous Zeiss f/2.8 Planar lens. The upgrade was well worth the investment. The Rollei medium-format TLR cameras, like the 35mm Leicas, earned their place in photographic history for some very good reasons.
