Rolleiflex MiniDigi AF 5.0 Wraps Digital Camera into Old Fashioned Design

I have seen some of the old cameras from the early days of photography before. They look like this Rolleiflex camera with two lenses on the front and the photographer had to look down through the top of the camera to see what the lens was focused on. If you like that old-fashioned look, but want a modern digital inside, this is the camera for you.

The Rolleiflex MiniDigi AF 5.0 is a small little digital camera with a 5MP resolution. The camera looks like the old Rolleiflex 2.8F 6x6cm twin lens reflex camera apparently. It has a small 1.1-inch LCD on the top too.

You have to look down to see the LCD. The strangest part for me is that to take each successive digital shot, you have to crank the side handle. That handle on the old print cameras would have advanced the film. The photos it takes are in a square too. You can pick one of these up right now for $270.
