Rolleiflex Medium Format Hy6 Camera

Germany’s Franke & Heideche, maker of the Rolleiflex brand of cameras, has started supplying preproduction samples of their new Hy6 medium format camera to their OEM customers Sinar and Leaf.

The Hy6, in 6×6 format, is the first digital-ready medium format camera designed to accept future digital backs with up to 48 x 48mm sensors.

Sinar’s Hy6 and Leaf’s Afi are expected to begin commercial production late next month after doing their own back integration tests.

One thought on “Coming Soon: Rolleiflex Medium Format Hy6 Camera

  1. Donny Emerick

    I was lucky to visit Photokina and spent a long time at the Rollei booth.

    One things nice about the HY6, that this camera is backward compatible with everything I have for my 6008. It also uses may of the same features from the 6008 as well.

    Its nice to see a camera manufacture such as Franke & Heideche be able to work with the other top camera manufactures like Leaf and Sinar to create a great camera that is able to grow and adapt to the future of photography. Not many company’s can create a system that is backward compatible and continuing to advance with science design.
