Oh I wouldn't pay that much for one, thats just something I found. Would be fun to have tho, maybe $50.00 would be the right price I'd be willing to pay.

And it'd ben a real Rollei too. Isn't the brand just owned by some Chinese company these days, with no real connection to the original company?

Looks like a cute little toy. Does it save raw or just jpg? This could be very popular.

B & H lists it as discontinued.

rollieflex minidigi

So, its not a "NEW" camera. I can see it showing up on eBay, but not on a Pentax website, even if the Taiwanese distributor of Pentax also distributes Rollei products in that country/region.

Um ya seriouslly, I posted the first reply and its an article about it in 2008, they are way discontinued, they were big in the Lomo world for street photography... Not worth the asking price though even though the pictures were not bad they have a flickr group...
