Retro Rolleiflex 2.8F 1929 Digital Camera

Came across this very interesting digital camera, a 2 megapixel vintage replica based on the Rolleiflex 2.8F of 1929. Check out details here on Rollei's website.

That's funny. But since it's a miniature of the original it should automatically make anyone using it look like a dork ;-) I have two real Rollei's like this which my father left me as part of his camera collection...

I loved the old Rollei TLR's. I'm glad they are keeping part of the legend alive.

That's super cute!
I'd buy one if.... if a lot of things, like functions and price, but if it was in the category I was looking at, hands down it would win.

ANy idea of a price?

I believe it is available in Japan only, although there are vendors who specialize in bringing such products to the states and elsewhere. Price I saw was for $549, which is high for a 2MP digital camera. Guess you'd be buying it more for novelty reasons.
