Minox Digital Rollei TLR
Minox Digital Rollei TLR added to Digital Classic Camera range
Since 1929, famous photographers worldwide have used Rollei TLR cameras, first for news and then especially for portrait photography.

To compliment the success of the Digital Leica M3, Minox have introduced a scale 2MP digital replica of the Rollei TLR to their range. Faithfully recreating the famous and classic Rolleiflex 2.8F with many of its features making it a world first for a camera of this size, a 0.9 LCD monitor and SD card memory just to mention two. Also faithfully replicated are the two lenses that always identified a Rollei camera, the Rollei logo, film crank lever, exposure meter, shutter release and carrying strap.

As with the original, the camera is held at waist level or slightly above and you look downwards into the viewfinder (LCD screen) which is protected from unwanted shadows or direct sunlight by a hood that pops up at the touch of a button. The images you have taken can be reviewed and deleted on the playback mode. The film advance winder actually works on this digital miniature and readies the camera for the next photo to be taken.

The prime feature of the original Rollei was its 6x6cm frame format, and this is re-created on this digital version as it produces square images with its combination of 2Mb CMOS sensor and 9mm f/2.8 equivalent lens. There is also the opportunity to shoot at a higher resolution of 3MP by using the optional software interpolation.

Besides being a fully functional digital camera, the Rollei Mini Digital TLR is sure to turn heads and create interest anywhere, as cameras dont come much better looking than this!

Have seen this before - attempt to bolster flagging sales?

Rather have the real thing - if I could afford it!
