Rolleiflex has long since been an icon of amazingly built, high end cameras originally produced by Franke & Heidecke in Germany. The name Rolleiflex actually refers to the name of the Twin Lens Reflex line of cameras that debuted in 1929. Rolleiflex was long considered the top standard in build quality, optics and design. Sadly, the news came out on March 13, 2015 that the German auction service, Proventura will begin liquidating the Rolleiflex factory starting on April 20, 2015. You can see over 1,000 photographs on the companies auction listing page. In this video I will give some thoughts about what this means and about antique camera collecting and use in general. I know that many of you are film shooters and love old cameras. I'd love to hear your thoughts on this as well so feel free to comment.
