    That was barely readable. Even so, interesting.

    And of course, they are wrong about this: "The older Rolleiflex FX 2.8 named their lenses Planar."

    "For our younger viewers, this is a film camera. Film is like a write-once memory card that needs special processing with chemicals and dark rooms before you can "see" the pictures taken."



    Maybe Rollei is going to buy both Kodak AND Fujifilm...

    Or as I usually tell 'em, film's like having a brand new sensor for every shot.

    They need to do something with the Rolleiflex logo on the TLR, I like mine better, this one looks painted on and cheap.

    I can't connect to that site. Are you sure that is legitimate? There should be news from Rollei if they are making new cameras.

    here's more

    It's good to see companies coming out with new cameras, despite the fact that the companies that make color film are not interested in feeding said cameras.
