It is also the first camera from this segment which offers an in-built electronic viewfinder (1.17 Mp, zoom 0.45x). The camera is equipped with the 3'' LCD screen (unfortunately, not a touch one), 49-point phase-detection autofocus. There is also a possibility of recording films in 4K with the speed of 24f/s. In Full HD, the speed increases to 30f/s. In HD 720p, we will be able to record films in slow motion with the speed of 120f/s. The 4K Photo mode, known from more professional Panasonic cameras, is also at our disposal. This mode enables taking out single 8Mp frames from 4K films. What is more, the camera can be immersed up to 31 metres and put under the pressure of 100kg. The camera is also supposed to endure falls from 2m and ensure work in the temperatures up to -10°C.

    The Rolleiflex is Back

    A pinch of nostalgia may enter the hearts of a little older lovers of photography, because Rolleiflex is coming back on the market. A little hint for the younger photographers: if you have ever seen a person standing in front of a group of smiling people looking into a viewfinder placed half a meter from the camera, it was for sure Rolleiflex. 1). Rolleiflex Of course, the camera won't be identical to the one from the 60's. The new Rolleiflex is an instant camera and the image will be saved on Fujifilm Instant Mini. The camera is equipped with a stove viewfinder and a flash from light emission control. 2). Rolleiflex The used lens is a construction consisting of 3 elements, with the focal length of 61mm, created on the basis of spherical lenses. The aperture range is f/5,6 – f/22, and the focusing ranges from 48cm to infinity. The camera is equipped with the multiple exposure mode, long exposure mode and exposure control of +/-1EV. 3). Rolleiflex Constuction The first Rolleiflex Instant Camera will be in your possession in October, under the condition that you buy the camera through the Kickstarter campaign. It costs almost $400.
