    I just got these cameras off another family member. I don't know much about them. One is a Rollei and the other one is a hasselblad.

    The rollei was purchased in 1956, and the blad is from 1949ish.

    Anyone know anything about them?

    Sorry bout the bad pics.

    All I can tell you is that they are both junk. You should sell them to me. ;)

    Nah. They're not worth selling. I'll take them off your hands for you. I'm going to Portland in a few weeks, so I'll try to drop by.

    Guys, stop messing with him.

    I don't know much about the Rolie, but I think they're fairly desired and the Blad is a high caliber piece photographic equipment. It also has a Karl Ziess lens on it (a real one, not those crappy Sony P&S ziess lenses)! That's what professionals in the 50s used. That is a nice and expensive piece of gear.

    I think I might ebay them.

    I wouldn't choose either is my medium format of choice.

    I might try to pick up a Mamiya 7.
