The Rolleiflex 6008 Professional SRC 1000 is an medium format SLR, that means for roll films type 120 and 220 loaded in detachable cassettes. The 6008 is part of the successful 6000 series of Rollei which started in 1984 and was a evoluation of the design of the type SLX from 1976. The 6000 series introduced major electronic features such as multiple light metering modes, TTL auto flash metering , programmed exposure control, auto bracketing . Digital backs are like the Sinar eMotion are attachable instead of film cassettes. The lenses contain fast linear motor driven leaf shutter and linear motor driven aperture to achieve quiet camera operation. With out shake caused by the system.
Camera type : Automatic motorized and computerized roll film single lens reflex with multimode exposure control ,multi-function TTL metering, TTL flash control and motorized film transport.
Picture sizes: 6x6cm and 6×4.5 cm.
Film type : No 120 and 220 roll film for 12 or 24 exposures. ( 6x6cm. ) or 16 or 32 exposures respectively ( 6×4.5 cm) Polaroid film packs.
Film speeds: set on film magazine in 1/3 steps from ISO 25/15° to 6400/39° , electric input to cameras.
Shutter: Electronic leaf shutter , 1/500 and 1/1000 to 30 sec in 1/3 step intervals and B , direct drive controlled by two linear motors in each lens.
Exposure metering : Center-weighted multi zones readings with seven silicon cells in five groups behind instant return mirror. Spot readings by photodiode on center of finder screen ( approx. 1% of image area.) Multi spot readings of up to five image points camera computes and stores mean value. Automatic stray light compensation during reading and exposure.
Quick release : Rapid release function with about 3-4 millisecond delay with PQ lenses between pressing the release and the shutter opening. About 2 millisecond delay with PQS lenses.
Exposure control modes: 1 Shutter priority AE. 2. Aperture priority AE. 3 Programmed AE based on fast speed priority. 4 Meter-assisted manual in 1/3 steps.
Measuring range : EV 3 to EV 19with ISO 100 film , f/2.8 lens. EV 5 to 19 with older lenses.
AE lock: Operates in all automatic modes, Stores aperture speed combination as EV.
Exposure correction: Manually set in 1/3 EV steps from -42/3 to -2 EV. Auto bracketing 3-shot sequences ( S+ setting) with +- 2/3 EV intervals.
Automatic flash : Additional silicon cell for TTL film plane measurement. Flash ready and auto check signal in finder.
Flash synchronization: at all shutter speeds from 1/1000 to 30 secs. Hot shoe with dedicated contacts for SCA 300 system flashes. Operates with Rollei SCA 356 adapter and FM1 flash exposure meter.
Releasing : Electromagnetic releases on camera front and speed dial. Cable release and remote control outlets.
Depth of field preview: Stop down key, operates in all exposure modes.
Mirror pre releasing : In any operating mode; stores and displays exposure reading.
Lens mount : Rollei bayonet mount with ten-pole terminal strip to transmit iris and shutter driving pulses. Full exposure coupling retained also with bellows unit, extension tubes and retro adapter.
Lenses : Zeiss and Schneider PQ( professional Quality) lenses provide all functions with full-aperture readings; stop down-feature to working aperture for depth of field previewing. Earlier non PQ Zeiss and Schneider lenses usable with working-aperture measurement only.
Multiple exposures: Film transport disengaged in ME position of camera switch; retains image viewing in finder. ME1 multi-exposure control units permits up to 10 exposures / sec.
Main mirror: pre releasable instant return mirror with partially transmitting multicoating. Pneumatic mirror brake.
Finder system: Camera supplied with folding hood containing interchangeable magnifier. Alternative 45° and 90° prism finders or rigid magnifying hood. Six interchangeable screens.
Finder signals : Digital LEDs for aperture and shutter speed in1/3 steps, correct-exposure balance signals, exposure correction, spot and multi-spot readings, AE lock , Flash ready, auto check , battery check. Exposure display can be switched off. Display reversed automatically for right reading through 45° and 90° prism finders.
Film transport: Built-in high performance motor for single shots and sequences up to 2 frames / sec. Automatic advance to first frame on loading, automatic wind off after last film frame.
Power supply : Rechargeable sinter NICd battery for about 500 exposures at room temperature;110-240 volt 50/60 Hz rapid charger with automatic charge limiter; 12 volt lead for car battery.
Action grip : Removeable ; four positions for different finders/ camera holds. Removeable leather hand strap.
Interchangeable film magazines: For 6x6cmon 120 film , 6x6cm on 220 film . 6×4.5 cm on 120 film or 6×4.5cm on 220 film. Built-in laminar drawer slide. Film speed input. Film type indicator. Pre loadable film inserts . Type 70 and Data 70magazines for 60-70 exposures on 70mm film. Polaroid back for film packs . Earlier Rolleiflex 6006 magazines useable ; simulate ISO100 film speed input, other film speeds by exposure correction adjustment. Can be converted by Rollei.
Dimensions : without hand grip : 143mm x 139mm x 124mm . with standard lens 80mm 176mm .
Weight : 1450 gram without lens . 2060 gram with 80mm f/2.8 lens.
