Some large format manufactures like Plaubel, Linhof or Ebony for example still
manufacture mechanical cameras. But this is quite a niche market.
In 35mm have a look on Voigtländer RF cameras, the R2 M, R3 M, R4 M. There is
also a medium format RF camera still manufactured by Fuji, sold as Voigtländer
Bessa III or Fuji GF670.

Other than Leica (I think) who still manufactures mechanical cameras?

Personally I would rather see the Rollei TLRs end forever, than have
production moved to China and be tainted by an association with the quality
many of that country's products, rightly or wrongly, have become well-known

Very sad news indeed. I was also hoping there would at least be some
solid Chinese bid for the whole lot, which would then be put
dismantled and put back together in China.
This thing purportedly happened with whole steel works when they
closed in my home region (Westphalia) 25 years ago.

Too bad I did not make it to Braunschweig to visit the factory before
this happened...

I have very bad news.

The Insolvency Sale starts on Tuesday.

I hoped, there would be somebody found who would take all items in a
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.
