AFTER HY6 WAS RETURNED FROM THE FACTORY BUT BEFORE PRESSURE PLATE ADJUSTMENTS

INTRODUCTION

Autofocus test of the Rolleiflex Hy6 (S/N 596540096) are described below.
 
The test pictures in this folder were conducted when the camera was returned to me from the factory
and are a repeat of largely identical tests conducted before sending the camera to the factory for repair.
The results show that the autofocus behaves the same as in the earlier tests being unable to focus on a
target 12 feet (3.66 m) away with any offset value from -30 to +30.

AUTO FOCUS AND OFFSET TEST

Date of test:  11/21/20.
Film was TMax 100 shot at EI 100 and developed in Xtol 1:1.
File numbers correspond to frame numbers.  The first 7 shots are autofocus tests, the next 2 shots are manual
focus tests using the slit image, and the last 3 shots are auto-focus tests that include an angled scale for
detecting smaller focusing errors.


*  The color picture (Nov_Test_Setup_1.JPG) shows the test arrangement.
*  Camera was on a tripod.
*  Focus area was set to "small" for these pictures as Eric recommended on 10/17/20.  Subsequemt tests showed
    that setting the focus area tio "Full" actually exacerbated the autofocus inaccruacy in this particular scenario.
*  The grid target was centered on the split image in the view finder.
*  All pictures were exposed at 1/15 sec at f2.8.
*  I defocused slightly before each shot so the camera would have to focus every time.
*  Mirror was raised manually before each shot.
*  Camera was set to single focus and was done focusing before I removed my finger from the focus button.
