Do you desire a camera that makes your subject want their picture taken?? If so, you should pick up a Rolleiflex. I've actually had people stop me in the streets to ask about the Rolleifex that I had around my neck. It's that interesting.
The Rolleiflex isn't all show either, coupled with a 6x6 film negative and an amazingly sharp Zeiss Planar 80mm f/2.8 lens, this camera is a beautiful image making machine!
The Rolleiflex TLR film cameras were best known for their exceptional build quality, compact size, modest weight, superior optics, durable, simple, reliable mechanics and bright viewfinders. They were popular and widely imitated. The high-quality 8 cm focal length lenses, manufactured by Zeiss and Schneider, allowed for a smaller,lighter, and more compact camera than their imitators. The highly regarded Zeiss Planar f2.8 and Schneider Xenotar lenses, both 80mm focal length and fast in comparison, are both state of the art optics.
Unique to the Rolleiflex Automat and letter model cameras, the mechanical wind mechanism was robust and clever, making film loading semi-automatic and quick. This mechanism started the exposure counter automatically, auto-spaced the 12 or 24 exposures, and tensioned the shutter; all with less than one full turn of the film advance crank. This makes the Rolleiflex Automat/Letter model cameras very sought-after for shooting fast paced action, such as street photography.

Some amateur and fine-art photographers still shoot Rolleiflex TLR film cameras with color transparency, color negative, or black-and-white film. The later f2.8 and f3.5 letter models (Planar or Xenotar lens) are highly sought after in the used market, and command the greatest price. Rolleiflex TLRs are still manufactured in Germany by DHW Fototechnik.
We love the Midori Traveler’s Notebook for the feel of the leather, the refillable high quality notebooks and the plastic inserts that help us organize our life just a bit better. We’d rather write our thoughts and ideas in a notebook, than type them on our pda or iPhone. Because we like our own handwriting, to encircle words for that extra emphasis and draw little doodles for all that we can’t verbalize.
