Hi - sad news.

But I think there are affordable TLR are all over the place: ebay.

To launch a business with "old" Rolleifilm-concepts, Rollei would have to relaunch their brand first: High end, luxury products - the very same way like Leica.
I doubt that the market for new TLR would be big enough.

Hi Volker,

That's too bad. I think there is a resurgence in analog & MF photography among the younger generation and an affordable TLR (Rolleicord with Tessar?) could be a hit.

Anyway, Hy6 looks interesting toobut then I would probably rather go for a classic Hasselblad with the option of a digital back later...

Last week I spoke with Mr. Paepke in Düsseldorfhttp://www.paepke-fototechnik.de/eng/index.htmland he too told me that new activities are planned in Braunschweig. I understood that they will focus on the Rolleiflex 6000/Hy6 series and that the production of TLR cameras has ended. He kept a low profile with details.
Kind regards,
