Minox Rolleiflex AF 5.0 digicam takes you back -- way back

Darren Murph

Uh, this is a Minox? It's not that we can't read labels, but considering the outfit's yawn-inducing offerings of late, we're a little stunned to see something so irresistible come out of its doors. The June-bound Rolleiflex AF 5.0 is a "fully functioning, high precision replica of the world famous Rolleiflex 6x6 camera (scale 1:2)," and just like its inspiration, it produces square photographs and boasts a functioning hand crank. Thanks to modern technology, this edition steps it up with a 5-megapixel sensor, LCD monitor and a miniSD slot. Word on the street puts the black version at €299 ($461), while the entirely more stylish red model will demand €30 ($46) more. Still cheaper than an antique, we'd wager.
