Nobody knows.

Anyway, complete cams and lenses are not on sale.
The stock seems to sold separately.

I haven’t seen a fax machine in at least 10 years.

Anyway it’s a bit late now. As much as I’d like to get a HY6…

I wonder what will happen to support and service? Will they reform in a new
company, as before, to continue offering Rollei branded equipment and service
existing gear?

I was hoping that it was an online auction and that I could put in a few bids
on some gear I’d like, but it looks like you have to actually be there.

Brett, the price starts at 50. Question is where the bidding ends.
Also the shipping cost to Australia?

Dirk,
I understand in order to purchase you actually have to be there. I'd love
an auto collimator myself for the princley sum of 50 EU. If the collection
and transportation of two instead of one would not be a major inconvenience
I'd be most obliged if you could get me one, please. Can send payment via
Paypal immediately. I'd attend myself but it's a fair trip from Australia...

I'm an infrequent contributor to the list, but well known over at
Rangefinder Forum where I always do my best to help owners with Rollei
queries or problems.
Cheers,
Brett

Unfortunately,
I have very bad news.

The Insolvency Sale starts on Tuesday.

http://www.proventura.de//insolvenzversteigerung-des-kameraherstellers-dhw-fototechnik-gmbh-ehem.-franke--heidecke-gmbh-salzdahlumer-str.-196-38126-braunschweig-finale-liste-online/auction/2669/bildkatalog/seite/19/#bildkatalog


I had a visit today at the factory. EVERYTHING is sold by Tuesday in an
auction. There were a lot of visitors from all over Europe, from Cyprus to
Lithuania, a lot of Rollei enthusiasts.
The auction on Tuesday will blow up the tears. But there is no alternative.
I met at the factory the former R&D Head of Rollei Fototechnic, and we had
a joint tour.
We saw the drilling and grinding workshop, the optical assembly lines and
final testing lines. All looked as they were left yesterday. A lot of
partly assembled HY6 and TLR could be seen on the assembly lines.
We went to the LARGE cellar of Rollei, like catacombs. There are plenty
of rooms which have never visited for the last 30 years! They are full of
single lenses, lense blankets, parts for TLR, test equipment and so on.
The collection of the last - at least - 30 years which nobody used anymore.
We visited the shelter, under in the cellar, which was built during WWII.
It is also full of old stuff. All is going out by tomorrow, and for a lot
of valuable items nobody will take care about. They all will be go to trash.
Personally, I will try to bid for an autocollimator. They still have plenty
of them. They have been built in the 1960s in batches of hundreds by Rollei
directly. They are going out for 50 Euros.

IT IS VERY SAD!

I hoped, there would be somebody found who would take all items in a batch
to continue, but this did not happen.

I take numerous of photos which I will display later on.

Best regards, and God bless some people from former DHW which still want to
continue.


Regards

Dirk
