    Whatever, they must think film will be around for a while or they wouldn't invest the money in new cameras. Lomography has an article too: http://www.lomography.com/magazine/n...s_sidebar_text
    Rollei does market film under their name. I don't know who makes it, but maybe they will invest in Kodak's film line. Any way that works if fine with me - I just like film better than digital.

    Moma don't take my Kodachrome away!
    Oops, Kodak just did!
    For all practical purposes, they've taken Kodak away.

    > Rollei does market film under their name.

    That is not the camera company. The name Rollei was bought by Maco. This company doen not produce fillms. It sells respooled aerographic and traffic films, and may be some other types, using the name Rollei.

    Hello Uwe,

    it is different, a bit more complicated:

    The current owner of the Rollei brand name is RCP-Technik:

    http://www.rcp-technik.com/typo3/ind...ollei-home&L=1

    They license the Rollei name to Maco Photo Products for films, paper, chemistry

    and license the Rolleiflex name to

    DHW Fototechnik (the former original Rollei / Franke&Heidecke in Brunswick, Lower Saxony, Germany) http://www.dhw-fototechnik.de/ .

    Best regards,
    Henning

    As for the FXn I would guess price comparable to the existing FX. E.g. >$5000

    Hello Dennis,

    I've been at Photokina and had a long and very interesting talk about the new cameras with Mr Schönrock of DHW at their booth.

    Well yes, the current FX has a new focus machanism which allows a closer minimal focus. The new focus mechanism is similar to the one used in the Tele-Rolleiflex FT.
    The optical design of the lens is the same (Planar).
    The new lens name "S-Apogon" is now used because the licence agreement had expired.

    The demand for the Rolleiflex TLRs has been very stable over the years, and is recently just slightly increasing. The highest demand comes from Asia, especially from Japan, where these cameras have always been very popular.

    DHW has been very satiesfied with the interest for their products at Photokina. Interest was much better than expected. For the new, improved Hy6, too.
    He told me that about 35% of the Hy6 customers are (also) using the Hy6 with film.

    Best regards,
    Henning

    It looks in the pictures that the FX-N is bay 4. Is that true?
    Now my brown leather FX is just another old Rollei!
    Dennis

    Thanks for the info Henning.

    I think the reason for using Bayonet IV is that the front is of the same type as on the Tele and it extends a bit further out, so the lens is deeper inside the front. Bayonet III would cause vignetting.
