    double lens reflex?

    ive started to collect antique cameras, and i saw this Rolleiflex Double Lens Reflex camera and loved it. then i saw that they go for $4k (new)

    now im not looking to buy a new one, but even the old ones are like 500-600 dollars.

    now im sure there is a reason why they are so expensive, so can someone tell me why?

    2 is better then 1


    they are larger format then 35mm (6x6cm i think). have 2 very good prime lenses in them, are very quiet(good for weddings), and they look sexy.

    Yes, the Rolleis have an air of class about them and will never be cheap.
