Camera Production at the Rolleiflex Factory
The German PhotoScala Magazine made this short film not so long ago. Note
the mixture of really old style and high-tech production tools. Anyway it
is clear that all cameras are hand-made. Watch the TLR that is undergoing
final testing of the film transport. It is held on a small wooden box lined
with dark red velvet to protect the lenses. The velvet is so worn and its
colour so ancient that the box could be pre-World War II and it was still
in use. In 2003 a senior member of staff jokingly told me that the thing was
a DIY job by old Mr. Heidecke himself (Reinhold Heidecke, 1881 - 1960, one
of the founders of the company).

What Are the Different Types of Film Cameras?
Despite the ongoing improvements in digital imaging technology, analog cameras remain a
popular (and beloved) instrument for many photographers. From 42 West, the Adorama Learning Center.

Film Photography: Why You Should Get In on the Fun
From the Adorama Learning Center. Even with the latest and greatest updates in DSLR
and mirrorless cameras, film photography is still having a resurgence.
Behind the Film - Inside the ILFORD factory
See how film is made. Take a look inside the HARMAN technology factory in Mobberley, England
where they manufacture the ILFORD and Kentmere ranges of black and white film, photographic
paper and chemicals. Find the Rolleiflex (after 5 and 12 minutes).
Film processing with a ‘Refrema’ dip-and-dunk machine.
See how film is developed in a Refrema dip-and-dunk processor at Indie Film Lab. It takes a while before they get to the point
and the presenter is quite happy with himself but it nicely shows how the processor works.
Subminiature cameras in general
“Where subminiature photography is alive and well!”
Well to a certain extend. It looks like the site is still maintained but a lot of practical
information seams completely out of date but the cameras have not changed in 50 years.
