From Vick: > ...questions on the Rolleinar > 1) which lens goes on the viewing lens? The long "fat" one or the > skinny one? The _long_ one (usually stored above the thin one as a compact stack), goes on the _viewing_ (top) lens. Note that if the bayonet mount is the same forboth rolleinars, the barrel has a reduced diameter so that you can mount both lenses on the twin lens bayonets even on a 2.8 TLR model. > 2) is there an "up" orientation? Only for the _viewing_ rolleinar lens. The reason is that the viewing rolleinar is composed of a positive lens element of the same focal length as the viewing one, _plus_ a prism of a very small angle, its base being on the bottom side. Now take the viewing rolleinar, look through it and rotate it. There is only one position for which the image is not shifted laterally but shifted up. This is the right one. The viewing rolleinar should be in this final position of course _after_ turning the bayonet mount in. > ..a red dot on the lens for the viewing lens, Yes the red dot is supposed to tell you where to start when attaching the viewing rolleinar ; there are 3 positions at 120 degrees, only one is the good one. The two "wrong" others will yield a lateral image shift. > ...There is a red "R" on the black rim of the long lens.

I should check this on my rolleinar but those details (the "R" and the set screw) are not of any importance in normal operation. - -- Emmanuel BIGLER <bigler ------------------------------
