Rolleiflex SL66

Medium format 6x6 SLR system • Discontinued


Rolleiflex SL66 series cameras were one of the most advanced 6x6 SLR cameras ever developed for the professional or dedicated amateur. Many brilliant features and innovations set them apart from all other medium-format cameras: built-in bellows, a tilting lens board for greater depth control, and reversible interchangeable lenses are just a few. The result was a fast, responsive, easy-to-use instrument - a truly universal system that will handle any challenge.


  • SL66 - a completely mechanical SLR with an original bayonet-type mount, focal plane shutter with top speed of 1/1000th of a second, interchangeable magazines, finder hoods and focusing screens;
  • SL66E - an improved model with TTL open-aperture ambient and flash metering, and a hot shoe;
  • SL66X - a stripped-down model with TTL flash metering only;
  • SL66SE - the most sophisticated model with dual (spot or weighted integral) metering system and LED indicators in the viewfinder.


Carl Zeiss lenses for Rolleiflex SL66 series cameras represented true state-of-the-art optical design. Because a leaf shutter did not have to be incorporated into each lens, Zeiss were able to create lenses that are lighter in weight, sturdier, and less expensive than conventional medium-format SLR lenses.
