Somehow I managed to find in my possession a mint condition Rollei 35. Earlier this year at B&H I asked them about the history and the very first camera I saw in their mini museum is the Rollei 35.
The Rollei 35 is a 35mm miniature viewfinder camera built by Rollei. The original Rollei 35, when introduced at Photokina in 1966, was the smallest existing 135 film camera. Still today, the Rollei 35 series remain the second smallest 35 mm camera after the Minox 35. In 30 years, about 2 million Rollei 35 series cameras were manufactured.
Here are a few Ilford black and white images I took with it in the States, and at home, in Sea Point.
