Blacker than black can be

  1. I have a Rollop TLR. The film compartment has no coating on the inside, just the bare die cast finish. Googling around with no clear direction I came across this:

    It would cut out any reflected light but would make looking in detail at it difficult.

    Just sayin.

    Here's the flocking applied inside a Lubitel TLR.

  4. I had a Rollop a while back. I was convinced there was a light leak coming through the front when the lenses were fully extended:

    I use sticky back black felt for internal flocking.
