Rolleiflex Mini Digital Camera: Love It or Leave It?

The Rolleiflex Mini Digital Camera is about as vintage geek-meets-modern functionality as you can get. It's a 5-megapixel camera, but it looks its 1920s era German namesake.

I'm thoroughly charmed by the Rolleiflex, especially the up-facing display that lets you shoot without the camera and the hand-lever crank, and how cute it looks around your neck.

But $400 for a 5-MP camera? Is it a justified price for novelty?

How do you feel about it?

Very cute indeed, but I really like my current digital camera and it was at least as no way would I dump it just for the cute factor of this one. I have purses to buy! :D

Man that is so friggin cool. I would snap that up in a minute but the price makes me want to hurl. AND the first time I tried to take a picture in a dark auditorium and the "autoflash" went off making everything black I would snap! I hate autosh*t! If I wanted the flash on, I'd turn it on. Same with the red eye remover and stabilizer and all the other crap that is bundled on modern phones that is a pain to turn off.

wah! why so 'spensive?? is it the materials? is it the features? if there isn't something else great about it, it's too silly to shell out an extra $200 or so just for the laugh.

It's crazy expensive for just a 5mp camera, it's true. But it's so unique and stylish! I've been wanting one of these since I first saw it on gizmodo a little over a month ago. It's steampunk chic!

I think it is cute! But I'd rather have the real thing - we collect old cameras, and the Rolleiflex is one of the few that I LOVE but do not have yet.

Adorable and being the camera/photography nerd I am, I would love to have it... but it should cost 1/2 or LESS than that.
