    May be Blasphemy, but does look kind of cute, unlike any other digital camera, and small compared to the real thing.

    I think there was an earlier version which took Minox cassettes. Don't know if it's still around. I'm sure both will eventually be a collectors item, especially as I doubt if many will be/were made.

    It's cute and whimsical, as one might expect from Minox, which I believe built it. They also make a Leica M3, along with Minox film versions of Leica I,III, and M3, a Hasselblad SWC, and a Contax I. As one might expect from Minox, they are taking the idea of camera as fashion statement seriously. And given the limitations of the 8x11 (mm not inches for you ULF types) format, they can't even think about avoiding digital.

    Video clip filmed and edited by a spastic monkey with ADD! Annoying jump cuts, bouncing frames and the same few shots over and over.

    2Mpixel sensor is pretty crummy now anyway.

    Sad, really just sad.

    Introduced in Japan Oct/Nov 2004. I like it EXCEPT it has no flash or any way to sync an external flash. If it had x-sync I'd buy one!

    Sells for $230 to $270 in NY.

    No, the real blasphemy is that in the Rollei version, because it has an LCD display, not a real mirror box+GG, you see the image on the screen NON-REVERSED! That, my friend, is unholy desecration of the most fundamental principles of TLR faith. Nobody will take seriously the intense cognitive training that TLR shooters had to go through in order to perform their craft, and nobody will ever feel the elating power of supervening upon one's perception when using only the mind's eye to find the One True Way of pointing the camera to follow a moving subject.

    May they all suffer for eternity in the searing lake of boiling liquid crystals and plasma that shall be their doom!
    Using film since before it was hip.

    Sadly, I guess when I recently used my prism finder on my Mamiya C330, I must have sinned!

    I beg your forgiveness

    Now that's WAAAAAAAY cute! Right up there with the little Leica IIIf digital that came out a couple of years ago. And the square format is nice, too.

    And, you never know, but some folks who use this might just decide to upgrade to a real TLR and discover film!
