Rolleiflex Instant Kamera

Though brand new to this generation, the Rolleiflex Instant Kamera is a flashback to a bygone era. Rollei made its mark in the 1950s and ’60s, with a wide array of high end cameras. Among the most memorable and iconic were the twin lens cameras produced in 1958 and 1960, which were often seen in high-profile hands, like those of Elizabeth Taylor, James Dean, even in an ancient selfie taken by Sammy Davis Jr. Rolleiflex is returning to its dual-lens roots, with the Rolleiflex Instant Kamera.

Since that gilded era, the Rolleiflex Twin Lens Reflex has been out of production. With analog photography experiencing a resurgence, designers and technicians wanted to create a TLR camera that honored its historic place in pop culture, but adopted the technology and aesthetic of the present day. The analog yet contemporary camera has a host of wonderful features, including an aperture range from f/5.6 to f/22, a powerful focus from 48 cm to infinity enabled by a cinematic view finder, and a flash with automated light control. The camera offers long exposure, multiple exposures, and other features that are hard to find in an instant camera. Go against the digital grain with the Rolleiflex Instant Kamera.
