Rolleiflex 4.0 FW Rollei’s legendary twin-lens reflex camera with a Super- Angulon 50 mm f/1:4 HFT lens, protective lens cap, carrying strap and size IV filter bayonet. The leather parts are of brown cowhide with a croco- dile grain. The back has chromium-plated edges that give the camera a sophisti- cated elegance. The logo on the front of the camera cor- responds exactly to the one that adorned the Rolleiflex cameras of the thirties. The well-proven carrying strap eyelets of the earlier models have also been taken over.
