Welcome to the rollei35.org site. It is a private site about the Rollei 35 line of
cameras. The site is based on the Rollei 35 part of Rolleigraphy: Rolleiflex
User’s site. Pages of both sites share the same content. The full Rolleigraphy site
can be found at rolleigraphy.org and can also be
reached through links in the top right corners of all pages.
In 1966 a very small mechanical 35 mm cameras called Rollei 35 was launched. At the time it was
the smallest ‘full frame’ 35 mm camera in the world. The camera was designed by Heinz
Waaske. Mr. Waaske invented this small camera while working
at Leitz Wezlar.
