    Hi, I'm looking for a split focusing screen for my beloved :heart: Rolleiflex 3.5T.
    Do you know where I can find that?
    And how many does it cost?
    Thanks a lot
    Stephane

    Tricky one! I know a dealer in NYC who could probably do it. Abe's of Maine Cameras - Google it.

    Thanks a lot Rob, I'll see it.
    I'm also trying to DIY one, with an old 24X36 screen. I stick it on a glass plate, and let's go....:p

    Can others edit my Photos:
    Photos NOT OK to edit
    Look on Ebay.

    Search for Beattie or Maxwell. Both companies make various screens for Rolleis. Some Rolleis it's easy to pop the top off and replace the screen yourself. With other models the screen should be switched by someone who knows what they are doing to make sure the focusing is calibrated correctly.

    Anyplace that repairs Rollies can probably sell you a screen and put it in.

    Harry Fleenor would be glad to do it.

    I'll see that.
    Mine is an easy-switch-and-replace-the-screen model (alias 3.5T) Anyway, as it's very used, I'll sell it for piece and buy a 3.5F instead...:D
