The company's founders Paul Franke and Reinhold Heidecke wanted to build cameras which were perfect and easy to handle. They wanted to make photography not only accessible to the professional photographer but to the wide range of amateurs. In 1929, the result was the legendary "twin-lens" which became the standard tool of professional photographers and the dream of every amateur enthusiast. The "twin-lens" formed the beginning of a long line of product developments. Others followed and among them the launch of the Rollei 35 in 1966, the Rollei SL 66 with built-in bellow, the first electronically controlled medium format camera Rolleiflex SLX, the 35 mm SLR camera SL 2000F with interchangeable magazines or the dissolve projectors which still are unique. Always on the assumption that products bearing the name Rollei represent something special, they must be of high optical and mechanical precision, be easy to handle and to operate, and be durable and of lasting value. In this context, new products for digital imaging and close-range photogrammetry open up new fields of applications.
