I want one of these...

It's a Rolleiflex 2.8F.  Yes, it's old; a totally vintage equipment.  Actual film, not digital.  But one of the best cameras ever built.

My dad had one, and I loved playing with it.  The viewfinder looks like this...

... you look from above the camera, and it renders a true vintage image on paper.

It's funny how we run towards technology, only to shy away from it.  I am not abandoning digital photography at all.  I am only acknowledging a need to reconnect with an older way of doing.  Rediscovering old knowledge and putting it to use.


  1. Mmm… nice.
    Is there such a thing as camera envy?

  2. I love film and this camera is just beautiful, I want one too :)

  3. OMG this looks so amazing.. just looking through the view finder in your photograph is making me giddy
