Two new touch-screen cameras from Rollei: the Compactline 360 TS, pictured above, and the Compactline 370 TS, both of which will be available from the end of September in â€œMarilyn Monroe poutâ€ packaging.
Why Marilyn Monroe? The new owners of the company have found a link to the Monroe name via Bruno Bernard who took photos of Marilyn in the 1940â€™s with his Rolleiflex camera, and they will be showcasing this fact plus a number of the Hollywood divaâ€™s photos at Photokina 2010 on September 21 to 26.
The Rollei Compactline 360 TS features 12 megapixels, 3-inch touch-screen LCD, 4x optical zoom starting at 28mm and 720p HD video recording functionality. The Compactline 370 TS has all of those but it has a beefier image sensor at 14 megapixels. The new compacts will retail at â‚¬100 for the 360 TS and â‚¬130 for the 370 TS ($130 and $170, respectively).
