Rollei introduces in Japan a small and digital version of its classic Twin-Lens Reflex Camera used by professional Photographers.

Rollei lengendary german camera maker, remakes their Twin-Lens Rolleiflex Cameras that where discontiuned in 1967, because of a retro trend amongst proffessional fashion and magazine photographers.
Rollei also offers now the MiniDigi which is a digital camera with Twin-lenses in the retro-style look of the orginial Twin-Lens Rolleiflex.
The 1.1" display is on top like with the original. It has a waist-level viewfinder like the original. That is i guess the main attraction when using the MiniDigi. Users look like professional photographers when taking pictures, but they actually are just using a $350 2MP digital camera.
