Rolleiflex 3.5F repair


Rolleiflex 3.5F repair, originally uploaded by jiulong.

Yesterday the shutter on my Rolleiflex 3.5F jammed open. I am lucky to live near possibly the only Rollei-trained repair technician in the Southern Hemisphere, the 84-year old Mr Sargon Evanian. Just a quick phone call and I was round at his house, sipping Ribena while he took the machine to bits on the garden table. It was a windy day and I was quite worried that the many screws and tiny baffles that he removed would either get lost or be blown onto the ground. Not a problem! It is just amazing to watch this master craftsman at work. An octogenarian, he still has the dexterity of a 20-year old. He quickly diagnosed the problem as a broken spring (the camera is almost 50 years old), and even more amazingly, HE HAD A SPARE IN STOCK in his shed (even though the Rollei company has gone out of business). After stripping down the side of the camera to reveal the inner workings, the broken spring was quickly replaced, and he soon had my beloved machine working again. They don't make 'em like that any more!
A big thank you to this generous and very capable man.
