Rollei Rolleicord Ia Model 3

This is the Rolleicord Ia Model 3, instead of a Rolleiflex I picked this up soon after starting my camera collection. This medium format twin-lens reflex camera uses 120 format film, though there was an attachment called the Rolleikin that allowed 35mm cassettes to be used. This particular camera currently has 35mm loaded using 3D printed adapters.

The viewfinder is large, but somewhat dim making composition difficult on overcast days. However, when the sun is out the finder is more than adequate.

The build quality and feel are high end, it feels like a camera that could be used on a daily basis with no problems.
