Rolleiflex- Sinarback Digital Bundle
The bundle includes the Rollei 6008AF, a Sinarback eMotion22 digital back,
editing software, and an AF Xenotar 80 mm F2.8 lens. The interchangeable film
packs allow a photographer to shoot film, Polaroid-type shots as well as digital
shots with very high speeds that result in high quality digital files.
The 6008AF bundle is ideal for photographers who need maximum mobility -- from portrait, fashion and landscape photographers, to photojournalists, and corporate/ government photographers involved in "workflow" photography. Pricing is expected to be in the $24,999 range.
Direct Source Marketing was created to distribute Rolleiflex and Horseman professional level products in the U.S. as the result of a joint venture between Komamura Corporation, a long time distributor of Rollei and Horseman products in Japan, and Franke & Heidecke, the Germany-based manufacturer of Rollei professional products.
The 6008AF is the top-of-the-line offering in a family of integrated products
Rollei and Horseman are rolling out in the U.S. The product family is designed
to allow photographers to easily interchange lenses, backs, and accessories
without having to outsource. This integration strategy means that photographers
can benefit from new developments without having to outsource for lenses and
The Sinarback eMotion22 digital back has a resolution of 22 million pixels per RGB or CMYK color, and offers the option of saving RAW files in addition to TIFF and JPEG files. The digital back has a lithium-ion battery that is good for about 250 shots per charge. A 2.2" angle-insensitive OLED color monitor with a resolution of 116,000 pixels is integrated in the back of the unit for instant review of images.
The Rolleiflex 6008AF is the first auto focus medium-format camera for precise
high-speed automatic focusing with the new AF lenses by Schneider-Kreuznach.
The leaf-shutter lenses of the Rollei 6008 System are fully synchronized for
speeds up to 1/500 s or even 1/1000 s and thus easily match any flash challenge.
As part of Rollei's new family integration strategy, the lens is compatible
with more than 20 current 6000 system lenses.
The 6008AF is easy to operate and extremely fast: The unit is ready for operation a mere two seconds after being switched on. Shooting speed is a maximum 1.2 s or 50 frames per minute.
