Cris Miranda and another Pentax Spotmatic. This camera was massively sold in Brazil back in the 70´s.
From time to time I come across some good deals. A few months ago I purchased a Rolleiflex and took it to Mr. Peres for a CLA. Last week he called me to say “It´s done” and today I went there to pick it up. Only then I realized it is a whiteface with Xenotar lens identical to the old one (at left).
Its serial shows it is a bit newer than the other.
I can´t wait to burn some films with the new camera. I even bought some Acros, very cheap.
Speaking about Rolleiflex and film, Claudio – a friend who lives in Rio de Janeiro – also got some films to feed into his cameras.
I love TLRs!! They are light, handy and the leather case provides good protection to the camera.
Paulo Pretti is the owner of Pretti, a small shop in the undergrounds of Galeria Sete de Abril. They sell almost only used cameras and lenses but they also collects some odd and rare cameras.
Last time I was there, Paulo showed me this camera. It´s a Dr. Rodehüser camera which I have never seen before. Its body was made out of a solid aluminium block and it fits 127 rollfilm.
I found a very interesting text about Dr. Rudehüser:
“Dr. Rodehüser founded Dr. Rodehüser, Feinmechanischer Optischer Apparatebau, a German company based in Heeßen, Westphalia. Its factory in Bergkamen, Westphalia, made still cameras. The company made the Panta viewfinder cameras for 120 and 127 rollfilm, solid metal cameras with sturdy aluminium body. After bankruptcy Dr. Rodehüser refounded the company as Westfälische Kamera- und Apparatebau. This company failed and RODEHÜSER FLED TO BRAZIL (!!!) for a while. His consultant Heinrich Otterbach refounded the company as Feinmechanisch-optischer Gerätebau Schück & Co.. Financing the new company was based on an act of fraud. Rodehüser and his consultant had misused the postwar credit program of the government to found a KG (commanditist company) which was not able to survive with the simple cameras that it had produced. At the end both had consumed 750.000 D-Mark state money for their experiment and ended in jail.”
First things first: SHIT!! Why everyone has to flee to Brazil?!! Second, it is possible that this camera may be brought to Brazil by Dr. Rosehünd himself although it is very difficult do prove.

Luis Albuquerque lives in Portugal but I couldn´t resist to post his beautifull pictures.
