These were once a single list but it split a couple of
years ago. On is on Freelists which is a mailing list
service. http://www.freelists.org from there you must
register and can choose which lists to join. This one is
called rollei_list. The other is on Yahoo and can be
accessed there or via e-mail.
http://groups.yahoo.com/group/rolleiusers/join You will
have to register with yahoo. Yahoo wants to send mailing
lists in HTML with advertising but you can opt out of this
in your settings. You will have to reset them periodically.
While both lists are officially for discussion of Franke &
Heideke products they range all over the place. I am
co-administrator of the Freelists one and can help if you
have trouble subscribing. Write me directly for that. You
will get a challenge message from my spam blocker but just
return it and I will unblock you and answer the message.
There are people on both lists who know the Rollei
enlargers.
