Rolleiflex Twin-lens Reflex Digital Camera

The Rolleiflex MiniDigi AF 5.0 is a tiny 5-megapixel digital camera designed to look just like the Rolleiflex 2.8F 6x6cm twin lens reflex camera. The camera even operates like an old school TLR: you look into the camera from above via a square 1.1-inch LCD screen, the camera needs to be readied for each shot by turning the handcrank on the side, and the photos taken are square format. It’s available on Amazon in black or red versions for about $270.


Thanks for the heads up, @jcargetsinger!

    Now this is just adorable. Of course it doesn’t compare to the film camera but this is ├╝ber cute!

    A real TLR doesnt cost that much.

    It is available on amazon for a while, but I dont know why Gizmodo and Petapixel making it a news now? Latest real Rolleiflex cameras are above $6000 on B&H. I would like to buy one :-)

    Too bad this version is a piece of crap.

    This is just another lame attempt to cash in on nostalgia and hipsters. Unless the cute factor is what you’re after, save your money and get a nice Yashica Mat, or save up for a little longer and get a real Rollei. You’ll get way more hipster cred with the real thing anyway.
