Rolleicord VA type 1 camera

Description

The Rolleicord Va is a later model in a long line of Rolleicords which started in 1933 and ended in 1977 and were produced by Franke & Heidecke and later on by Rollei-Werke in Braunschweig, Germany.

This one is the first version produced from 1957 till 1958. Only 23000 pieces were produced.

All Va's are equipped with a Schneider-Kreuznach Xenar 1:3.5 75mm lens. Viewing lens is a Heidosmat-Anastigmat 1:3.2 75mm. Before both lenses is a Bayonet mount Size 1 for filters, lens hood, etc..
The shutter is a Deckel Synchro-Compur MXV/CR00 offering speeds from 1 till 1/500 second, a B setting, a selftimer and X and M flash-synchronisation.

Please note that this camera is fitted with the no.16 film counter and 4x5.5 cm masks which means it produces 16 4x 5.5 frames from one roll instead of 12 6x6 pictures. Can be converted back to 6x6 format easily if you can get hold of a no.12 frame counter which appears on ebay now and then.

The majority of the Va's were produced in 2 different versions (models). However also a small number of transit models were produced (about 2000 units).

The Camera is in very good vintage condition and working well. Shutter fires on all speeds. The lens and the viewing lens are in excellent condition.
