Image Quality

Despite the flaws mentioned above, if the image quality held up, I would still recommended the camera for its uniqueness, if nothing else. Unfortunately, the image quality was less than I had expected from Rollei, a company known for excellent cameras.

The very first picture I took was taken from my car window. While stopped, I aimed the camera, cranked the handle, and snapped the photograph. The sun was shining directly at the camera from above, which I assumed would cause exposure problems; however, I never expected to see a burn hole in the image from the direct sunlight (See Photo). Fortunately, this was the only photograph that exhibited this effect.

The other pictures I captured faired better, and are acceptable, as long as the photographs are not used for anything beyond a 4"x6" cropped image. Remember, the camera takes square photos so each photograph will need to be adjusted (cropped) in order to get a standard size 4"x6" print from it. Below are thumbnails to photographs taken with the Rolleiflex MiniDigi. You may click on each thumbnail to see a full-size JPG image. The Rolleiflex MiniDigi features a 2.0 Megapixel image sensor (1200x1200) with an interpolated 3.0 Megapixel mode (1760x1760).
