The Rolleiflex camera was made by German company Franke & Heidecke between 1933 and 1976. The 3.5 F was produced in 1965 and 1966. They are a twin lens reflex (TLR) camera and this can be seen in the position of the controls as they are meant to be seen from above. This is where there are 2 lenses on the front one above the other. The top one is for the viewfinder and the lower contains the shutter and the operator looks down at the camera operating it at waist height.
There are several ways to use the Rolleiflex 3.5 F. You can hold it at waist height looking down into the viewfinder. Pull the top up to see the view finder, it is laterally uncorrected meaning when you turn the camera left the picture goes right. When the top is open, you can engage the magnifier to make sure your focus is razor sharp. With the top open if you push the front you have a reference viewfinder, and by holding up to your eye, you can roughly frame the picture, below this is the view finding that uses the mirror you have just moved. This allows you to use the camera at eye level.
