The Rolleinar close-up lens has become a staple piece of equipment that I carry in my camera bag. A convenient leather case allows for quick storage and retrieval of the Rolleinar, which is useful in many situations.
After aligning the lenses correctly (larger lens on top with dot aligned upwards, smaller lens on bottom in any position) you’re able to focus closer than the camera’s default 40 inches. It’s possible to use this for macro and portraiture photography.
The header image was captured on in a Rolleiflex 3.5 F K4A, equipped with the Rolleinar 1. The f/3.5 limit of the Rolleiflex combined with the extreme depth of field provided by the Rolleinar makes it easy to capture images in striking ways.
