I’ve had a “significant” birthday this week — one that ends with a “0”! — and to mark the occasion my wife treated me to an especially fine present, a beautifully refurbished Rollei 35SE from filmfurbish.
These little cameras really are masterpieces of design and engineering, among the smallest 35mm cameras that have ever been made. Mine has been been given a coat of spanking ceramic paint and lovingly re-skinned and it really does look the dog’s whotsits!
All credit to Jeremy at FilmFurbish. Not only does the camera look great, it comes in packaging that gives you the feeling that you’ve got a NEW camera. There’s been real care in the design and presentation. I know it won’t make any difference to how the camera functions, but it adds to the joy of receiving and owning it. I’d be surprised if some of that joy isn’t reflected in the image making.
