Holy shit.
Rollei is releasing a new film camera. Film is so back and I’m going to buy one.
Rollei35af

You are buying one too right /p?

Manual controls too so it’s not just a point and shoot. I am hyped.

I’ll believe it’s not self destructing chinkshit product like everything else they’ve made when I see it.
>>
Honestly I was expecting another POS like the Pentax 17 was. But after seeing it up close on a JCH livestream it appears to be the same pedigree as the original Rollei 35 with all its features. Not to sound like a reddit consoomer but the price is also about right, I wouldn't mind getting one at all.
>>
>>4331904

They had ex Pentax engineers helping them make this one.
>>
>>4331910
The same ones that “no longer knew how to make film cameras”? fuckin kek
>>
I think it's an amazing idea given that film is more important now than it ever was and people should always have a film camera with them just to have photographs that aren't ever going to be AI unless the fucking CIA is on your case

But it's a mint product so i'm holding off for user reliability reports lol
>>
>>4331913

I recon it’s the ones who did know, got pissed at Pentax not going all in to make a proper film camera and left.
That is the perfect ppl to hire for this project.
>>
holy FUCK did the rollei brand fall hard. SL2000 and 6006 are unparalleled to this day.
>>
>>4331919

This is a huge comeback if they pull it off. This thing has the potential for massive sales and they will be the only player in the market.
>>
I can’t wait to see Sonys sales fall as rollei starts taking over.
Everybody already owns a digital camera and a phone. Tons of people do not own a film camera.
Ai can fully replace digital photography but not film photography.
The stars are aligned for the return of film. It’s happening.
>>
>>4331919
>>4331925
This isn’t a Rollei comeback, it’s a Zombie brand. Might be nice camera but Rollei is dead and the name is just traded out like a cheap hooker to anyone that wags enough money at the rights holding company. Same as Polaroid and Kodak names. That’s why you saw shitty tvs and mp3 players and weird dollar store gadgets with the Polaroid name on them in the 2000s. Even if this does well, it’ll be MiNT benefitting. The rollei rights holders probably just took lump sum for the name. So it’s weird seeing you all talk about this like it’s rollei doing somethting

>you all talk about this like it’s rollei doing somethting
I'm saying the exact opposite, how rollei went from making the SL2000 and 6006 to just being a name on an overpriced 35mm point n shoot.
>>
rollei is just a name nowadays, youu can pay the brand owners and put it on whatever
>>
>>4331947
>rollei is just a name nowadays
imagine that happening to nikon or leica
it's already happened to zeiss and voigtlander but at least cosina puts those names on decent glass
>>

>display
for what purpose
>>
>>4331950

I think it’s the film counter, settings sort of basic stuff
>>
>>4331950
>>4331962
I'd also assume it's for other reasons such as DX code override, autofocus modes, etc
>>
>>4331899
>According to MiNT, via PetaPixel and Kosmo Foto, the Rollei 35AF is expected to sell for $650 to $800 when it launches later this year.

Lol, lmao even
Still would rather this than the PainTax half-frame crapera
>>
>>4332008

It’s not that bad for a decent film camera that should last 20 years.
It’s not like digital you need to constantly upgrade.
>>

>>
>>4332053

Technology so good it doesn't need a single improvement in 50 years.
Digislops could never.
>>
Jokes aside I hope both pentax and rollei sell them like hot cakes. Making a new film camera that isn't just a posh disposable like kodak is a bold move. With pentax already developing a k mount slr and mint reviving classic cameras this is basically an insurance for the continuity of film.
>>
>>4332062
Stock up on pentax lenses to sell them later at markup prices
>>
This camera looks more interesting than the half-frame shit. Monitoring.

Looks great, I love my rollei 35. Bought it 4 years ago and haven't had to change the lightmeter battery, and it fits in my pocket.

I have a Bessa R thats been working great for 10 years since owning. Bought it for 150 quid.
Plenty of working and excellent film cameras around that will outlive any MiNT shite.

Wise man. Let the hipsters with deep pockets buy it..use it once and let it collect dust.
>>
>>4337910
Jesus that price is fucking crazy. 1250 canuckbucks, we thought Pentax was huffing jenkem with the 17 price. G-d damn!
>>
>>4337910
What the fuck is this price. No technology nor material in it justify this price. Dropped hard.
>>
>>4331899
Just another cynical cash grab, wake me up when someone makes an F7 or EOS-1X
>>
>>4337917
I'm a zoomer btw. Not all of us are fucking retarded, especially the early ones lmao.
And even if the price came down, I wouldn't buy it either. I've got two film cameras (Canon AE-1, Olympus Mju II Zoom). I don't need more.
>>4337964
The Pentax 17 is also a "half frame" insta-snap-shit shooter, literally made for the short-form-content aspect ratio and orientation.
>jenkem
Had to google that. Lmao.
>>4338078
Exactly.

I will stick with my Nikon FG. It is the smallest and lightest camera I am comfortable with, as well as having an adequate metering system for shooting slide film.
>>
>>4337910
i get the sentiment but this camera is small as fuck which is kind of the draw. finding cameras this small with full manual controls is rare- although I get it its definitely not for everyone.
>>
>>4335831
>I'm fucking done with that goddamn country
Why? Their shit's just starting to get good; that's why international firms are relocating production to cheaper nations, like Vietnam and Bangladesh.
>>
>>4338078
>No technology nor material in it justify this price
It's more justifiable than small sensored compacts being listed for hundreds.
>>
>>4331899
>You are buying one too right /p?
Nah. I got the Pentax 17 and might pick up a FM3a to replace my aging SRT-101 that I've used since college.

But there's no novelty to this Rollei for me at all.
>>
