    Mats,

    Great photos of the Rollei plant, thanks for posting. Impressive; the plant looks like a nice place to work, and very clean. Lots of pride seems evident.

    I am glad you liked it. I found the link in a Finnish film-camera forum and felt like sharing.

    Thanks for the link. It makes me appreciate my Rolleiflex that much more. I doubt this process of manufacturing will ever happen again. Now everything is sub contracted out, just assembled by a robot in a production line and mass marketed. Well, maybe except for Hasselblad and to some extent Leica. A, for the good old days.

    Interesting! I wonder why the film shown in the last pic doesn't have square pictures on it?
