T

Rolleiflex T is a series of medium format film TLR cameras manufactured by Franke & Heidecke, Braunschweig, Germany, and produced between 1958-76. The "T" designation does not come from the famous lenses Tessar, but simply from the first name of its creator: Théodore Uhl.

See also the article Rolleiflex.

The Rolleiflex T was originally designed, to fit between the budget Rolleicord and the Rolleiflex F models. It should have been a low cost camera, just less sophisticated than Rolleiflex F models.
