RolleiRolleiflex MiniDigi digital camera introduction : First developed in Germany in the 1920's, the Rollei 6x6cm Twin Lens Reflex Camera has always been a preferred tool for serious photography, especially portraits. Now, many of the outstanding convenience features and nostalgic design can be yours in a fashionable up-to-date digital. The Rolleiflex MiniDigi digital camera, the world's first of this type with LCD monitor and Secure digital flash card memory. A major attraction of the Rollei 6x6cm has always been its square frame format. No shutter opportunity, no valuable seconds are lost by having to choose between horizontal or vertical position. Just aim, and then shoot from the waist.

Instead of chemical film, the Rolleiflex MiniDigi digital camera uses a 2 Megapixel sensor which together produce the square format. Images are stored on SD memory cards. One card (MMC size) is included with the camera, additional cards are easily available everywhere. In its design and many of its features, the Rolleiflex MiniDigi digital camera follows the Rolleiflex 2.8F with high exactitude. The two lenses, one above the other, the logo mark, the crank lever, the exposure meter, the shutter release, the carrying strap... all are miniaturized versions of the renowned original.

Rolleiflex MiniDigi digital camera - Never stairs in the eye
Again, just like with the original, you hold the camera at waist level and look downward into the viewfinder. To keep out stray light, the viewfinder hood pops up at a touch. (Technically, the viewfinder screen uses a colour LCD instead of a ground glass.) Why has the Rollei Twin Lens Reflex always been preferred for portraits? The camera, held at waist level, never 'stares the model in the eye.' People go on looking and acting naturally instead of posing for the camera. This is true for grown-ups but also goes for small children and even animals. With this type of viewfinder, you can also hold the camera very low or even place it on the ground when the shot requires that. And you don't have to lie flat on your belly yourself. Just like the original Rollei, the MiniDigi has a 'film advance' crank lever on its side. Although it uses no film, a turn of this crank readies the camera for the next shot. Another detail reminiscent of the famous original Rolleiflex.
