Robot accessories that came with my cameras. It's not the complete series, it's just those which I tested.
The Robot Spooler
With 2 cartridges, a TR feeding cartridge and a N taking cartridge.
With a standard film cartrigde and a taking cartridge.
is a very useful accessory for the older Robots which have no rewind.
As it is light tight, it can be used in full daylight. So you don't
have to bring multiple Robot cartridges for a longer photo trip and you
don't have to hand you expensive Robot cassettes to your lab.
are multiple lenses for the Robots. The older ones have a built-in
finder for 38/40mm only, so for any other focal length you will need a
finder to frame correctly. The newer ones have a 40mm and a 75mm frame
in their finder and if you take the whole window, it's about 30mm, at
least approximately. However, the built-in finders have no parallax
correction. All external finders have a parallax correction device.
Here are some finder models:

150mm setting, the ocular extends.
is one of the top of the finders, you only need one for all focal
lengths between 30 and 150mm. But as you can see from the photos, it
isn't small. It has a good parallax compensation device. You can even
frame correctly for close focus work with the standard focal length.
75mm big finder
The Finder and a 75mm lens. The view is adapted parallax wise to the distance set.
Viewing side. The frame is visible.
is a big finder, easily usable even with glasses. This kind of viewer
is available for all focal lengths, it's the frame that is different
according to the focal distance.
75mm and 40mm wire frame (sports) finder
The finder and its leather case.
Front, 75mm frame set.
side, 75mm viewer set. The parallax is adapted by moving the "peephole"
up and down according to the distance, engraved at the right side.
Viewing side, 40mm setting
This is a wire frame finder. Mounted, it's quite big, but it folds to a small package. There is a parallax device present.
150mm big finder
This is the same model as the 75mm big finder, only the bright frame is different.
The finder mounted.
This is a small finder. As the big model it exists for all focal lenghts, only the frame varies.
Lens shade or hood
The lens shade.
This screw mounted shade is very handy, it's retractable, you can leave it on the lens and the camera still fits into its case.
screw mount filters exist in all colours and as sky (UV) filter. The
close-up lenses are similar. For old lenses you may need push-on
3 Robot extension rings.
This is the standard set of extension rings for close-up work. There are othe distances available.
Robot M39 adapter
Mounted, rear view.
you own multiple Robot lenses, you might want to use them either on a
M39 Leica Mount camera or a digital one. I tested my lenses on a Sony A7. If
you are interested, have a look at my lens comparison site, the Robots are at the bottom of the page. The page opens in a new window.
The adaption to M39 is easy, the focal
flange distance of the Robots is 31mm. That's not far from the M39 which
is 28.8mm. So you add a 2.2mm adapter to a M39 one and you are there.
M26 to M39 adapters a readily available on the web and they can be
cheap. The Robot lenses are relatively small and they are fine for
