Who is shooting with the Rolleiflex Gold Edition?

rolleiflex gold edition

To commemorate the brand’s pioneering achievements in camera manufacturing, Franke & Heidecke is celebrating the 80th anniversary of the legendary twin-lens reflex with a limited edition Rolleiflex pack in gold. The company was started by Paul Franke and Reinhold Heidecke, whose names have become synonymous with the golden age of twin-lens reflex cameras. The limited, special edition set comprises three cameras – Rolleiflex 4.0 FW, 2.8 FX and 4.0 FT. Only 80 sets of this special edition with 14-carat gold-plated trimmings will be made. Each set will be supplied in a precious walnut-wood presentation case that also accommodates the accessories supplied, such as the CNC-milled lens hoods and filter adapters. A booklet will inform the reader about 80 years of camera history and also includes a short description of the most important twin-lens camera models from 1929 up to the present. The unique camera set for Rolleiflex friends, numbered from 1 to 80, will be available from late 2008 under Cat. No. 80888, for a price of EUR 29,000 ($37,765) each.
