Rollei, manufacturer of the classic twin-lens 6x6 Rolleiflex, has announced
the availability of the 6008 AF "Bundle," which will be the top-of-the-line
offering in a family of products Rollei is rolling out in the U.S.



The bundle includes the Rollei 6008 AF camera, the world's first auto focus
single lens reflex camera in a 6 x 6 medium format; C1 Pro software for precise
workflow that supports all phases of image editing and intuitive operation;
and the PhaseOne db20p digital back, which gives photographers film and digital
picture taking capability in one package. The interchangeable film packs allow
a photographer to shoot film, Polaroid-type shots as well as digital shots.



The db20p has resolution of 16 mega pixels, 16 bits per RGB or CMYK color, and
offers the option of saving RAW files in addition to TIFF and JPEG files. The
unit handles studio or location shoots with ease, thanks to high performance
rechargeable batteries that provide 250 shots (four working hours) and 45 frames
per minute without AC power. The data is stored in the IIQ RAW format on CompactFlash
cards. Processed images can be stored in the form of IIQ RAW, TIFF-RGB, TIFF-CMYK
or JPEG files. File sizes are between 48 MB and 128 MB. ICC profiles can be
embedded for optimum color management.



The 6008 AF is targeted to studio and on-location professionals -- from portrait,
fashion and landscape photographers, to photojournalists, and corporate/ government
photographers involved in "workflow" photography. Pricing is expected
to be in the $14,999 range.



Rollei's new bundle, which includes lenses from Schneider-Kreuznach and Carl
Zeiss, retains full compatibility with the Rollei 6000 system. This makes it
compatible with more than 20 current 6000 system lenses. Three new AF lenses
have been developed for the auto focus modes of the 6008 AF.



The 6008 AF also features a new TTL flash-control system. The TTL sensor is
integrated into the camera and measures the amount of flash light reaching the
film - parallax-free and at the exact viewing angle. All available shutter speeds
are flash-synchronized, which give pros a considerable advantage when working
in daylight and or for filling in shadows and strong subject contrasts. The
Rollei 6008 AF weighs 1500 grams and is 143 x 139 x 124 mm without lens.

In recognition of the centenary of Victor Hasselblad's birth on March 8, 2006,
Hasselblad has announced the Hasselblad 503CWD Anniversary Kit, a prestigious
high-end photographic system that offers state-of-the-art digital capture technology
elegantly integrated with a classically designed Hasselblad 503CW body.



Combining the rugged reliability of the black and chrome V System body, with its
range of high performance, central shutter-based lenses, and the technology of
Hasselblad's new CFV digital back, the exclusive Hasselblad 503CWD perfectly melds
the heritage of the old Hasselblad with the focus of the new Hasselblad on digital
high-end photography to create a new digital workhorse. Of undoubted appeal to
the Hasselblad connoisseur, the camera delivers the perfect blend of versatility
and simplicity in a compact, professional tool that gives the user complete control
over digital image capture and is a pleasure to operate.



The 503CWD Anniversary kit will be supplied as a limited edition of 500 cameras,
each one numbered and engraved with Victor Hasselblad's signature. Reassuringly
solid, the kit comprises a 503CWD body with waist-level finder, specially marked
focusing screen and chrome winding lever, a Zeiss Planar CFE 2.8/80mm lens and
a CFV digital back, and will be supplied with a beautifully produced book marking
Victor's anniversary.



For existing Hasselblad V System users, the new CFV digital back, the successor
of the V96C back, will also be available separately. Built to match the design
and functionality of the Hasselblad V System cameras, it can be easily and elegantly
integrated into an existing Hasselblad system, enabling the photographer to work
in exactly the same manner and with their preferred equipment, but with the productivity
benefits of digital photography over film.



MSRP Pricing: Hasselblad 503CWD

Anniversary Kit: $12,995

CFV: $9,995



Product availability will be the end of March. The Hasselblad website has been
