Sigh... Funny you should mention that.

This is memory lane day for me. First Steve's IR picture and now this...

I am at this very moment halfway through the process of cataloging  
about a thousand negatives I made with a Rollei 3.5 from 1953, when I  
bought it in Hong Kong, to 1973, in preparation for having the  
negatives digitized, and I marvel at how they've held up, and how I  
can recognize the place and moment the vast majority of them were made.

My late wife and I each used the Rollei constantly and I'd love to  
have a digital Rollei but I am afraid that's not going to happen.

Thanks for another memory,
