This is Gene Kelly (yes, that Gene Kelly - I'll be you thought he could only dance).

Can anyone recognize the TLR he is using (specific model if possible)?

Thanks. It is to help a friend with a project.

Best regards, and stay safe.

It’s most like this vintage Rollei, but a classier version.
Look at the handle and position of the flash cord contacts.

Hi, Asher,

Thanks.

You say, ". . .this vintage Rollei". By that did you mean to attach or point to an illustrative image?

Best regards,

Doug

That double ring on the winding handle was their motif. Also see the position of the flash contacts.

Here are numerous pictures!

Tell us about your project. A twin lens reflex is a simple and almost perfect optical system. It doesn’t rely on a mirror. The view finder is always bright. The pictures can be enlarged wall size.

Get a Yashicamat for next to nothing. A Mamiya 330 is simply amazing and built like a tank! No better optics and it will cost you just a song and a whistle!
