Robot Royal 24 Square Format 35mm Film Rangefinder Camera with Schneider Kreuznach Xenar 45mm F/2.8 Lens - Fully Functional
Here we have a beautiful and fully functional Robot Royal 24 (Model III) square format 35mm rangefinder camera with Schneider-Kreuznach Xenar 45mm F/2.8 lens. This camera is fully functional and ready to produce another lifetime of fantastic photos.
For all the details on this exact camera, see our review here for which we used this very example.
All aspects of this camera work as they should. The viewfinder is clear and clean. The rangefinder focusing patch is clear and correct, and alignment is accurate. All levers, dials, switches, and buttons work as they should. The film compartment is clean and clear, and the sprockets and spools are all excellent. The fully mechanical clockwork mechanisms for shutter actuation and film advance work perfectly. All shutter speeds are accurate.
The lens is in excellent condition, with glass elements free of fungus, haze, scratches, and separation. The shutter blades actuate beautifully and are unmarred. The aperture blades are in beautiful condition. The focus ring spins with wonderfully directed weight, and the aperture ring clicks into its detents with mechanical precision.
The Schneider lens included here makes very sharp and characterful images (many of which can be seen in our review here), and black-and-white or color film shots are rendered gorgeously.
Truly a masterpiece of classic photography, this Robot Royal 24 deserves to be used and appreciated.
It will be carefully packaged and shipped immediately.
