Thank you, Phil and Julio.

New roll from this camera, it's doing very well indeed.

I finished with the mechanical repairs of the camera, now it's turn for leatherette before showing off :)

Thank you for looking,
Alex

Looking great.
If we all saw the world the same no one would need a camera.

You never have to make excuses for a Xenar. While the Rolleicord never offered a Tessar or Planar, the Xenar certainly was the equivalent of the Tessar (design and performance).

Those photos have plenty of sharpness to them. My first Rolleiflex Automat had a Xenar - great lens.

You can replace the Rolleicord's mirror with one from a Polaroid One Shot (or other Polaroid cheapie). You have to cut the mirror, however.

And I don't understand why folks think they could never get along with a square format camera. Great subject matter and compositions, Alex.
