The Automatic Rolleiflex 4x4, popularly known as the "Gray Baby" Rolleiflex, was introduced in 1957, at an announced list price of USD $133.65. It is a knob-advance twin-lens reflex yielding 12 exposures of 4x4cm on 127 film. It has a Scheider Xenar 60/3.5 taking lens and a Heidosmat 60/2.8 viewing lens.
This model helped kick-start a brief boom for 38mm × 38mm "super slides" (whose slide mounts were the same external dimensions as 35mm slides, but offering a larger image area), and inspired several Japanese lookalikes.
We rarely see these cameras and especially in this amazing condition. We were tempted to call it "Mint" as its so nice but just not perfection and we prefer to under estimate on condition. Others would definately call it mint. Complete with its case in full working order (many that we have seen over time have a cracked bottom as people often forced it off the camera as its not obvious how to remove it).
The lens is clear and all speeds work just fine. What a lovely camera and perfect for any avid camera collector. I might just add this to my personal collection.... Jason M (Managing Director)
