Rolleiflex MiniDigi. The venerable, innovative and definitely quirkily retro DigiMini has had an upgrade to 3 megapixels (5 megapixels interpolated), autofocus and a 1.1 inch TFT viewfinder screen. Moving at light speed this bunch, aren’t they? Maybe by 2015 they’ll have a 7 megapixel version and we’ll all be able to die happy. But hey, snark aside, it’s a lovely little thing. And that cute top down viewfinder and wind up retro shooting action is just sooooo cool. £399.00.
Waist Level Shooting Prevents ‘Camera Fright’ Why has the Rollei Twin Lens Reflex always been preferred for portraits? The camera, held at waist level, never ‘stares the model in the eye.’ People go on looking and acting naturally instead of posing for the camera. This is true for grown-ups but also goes for small children and even animals. With this type of viewfinder, you can also hold the camera very low or even place it on the ground when the shot requires that. And you don’t have to lie flat on your belly yourself.
