I have recently gotten myself a Kochmann Reflex-Korelle III, and a IIa – both from the late 1930s and both non-working. And I have just today managed to combine them into a working one. The Reflex-Korelle itself isn’t really that rare, but working ones kind of are. There are a lot of reasons for that – the design is a bit …unusual, let’s call it that.
I’ll write up some repair notes at some point, but for now: pictures!
All shot with a (really pretty rare) 24cm f4.5 Schneider-Kreuznach Tele-Xenar. I’m pretty sure it’s not technically a Tele, since it’s also pretty much exactly 24cm long. But anyway, not very common to have such a long lens on a camera this old.
These are not the world’s greatest pictures but I wanted to shoot at least one film as long as the camera was actually working.
