    Didn't know they were still manufacturing them, cool. And no they aren't very compact, they are more like bricks.

    Wow. I too am surprised they are still around. Generally when companies license their name to novelty items, that generally means they are pretty much just a carcass. Like what Vivitar has done. There was a time when Vivitar was a good name.

    Since Rollei came out with this, I thought they had gone the way of Vivitar.

    I thought Minox made the mini Rollei's? But yeah I saw that as the end of a camera which was why I thought they closed their doors.

    That FX-N sure is gorgeous. Serious gear lust here, but what is the price?

    hmm, that's all very well, but it appears to have both a viewfinder and potential resolution far exceeding a "full-frame" digital sensor, so who on Earth in their right minds will buy one?

    If Rollei ever decides to make a digital TLR, I'll consider one. And I don't count those toy Minox ones.

    The mini was cute but useless really.. a full sized one would be like.. massive compartment for innards, but if they could hook that up with a crank shutter how cool would that be.
