Rollei bayonets

Rolleiflex and Rolleicord cameras were fitted with bayonet mounts for lens accessories (caps, hoods, filters and close-up lenses) from about 1937. Franke & Heidecke’s patent for the mount noted that bayonet mounts had been used previously, but that these tended either not to allow two accessories to be mounted together, or to require them to be stacked, so that each could not be fitted and removed independently. The Rollei bayonet mount allows a hood and a filter to mount independently, the hood fitting outside the mount, and the filter inside it.[1]

Kodak Instamatic 155X

The only adjustment possible was by rotating the lens ring between symbols for Sunny and Cloudy/Flash, which changed the shutter speed. Film advance was by a combination thumbwheel with lever attached.
