Hmmm...

meh...

If it was a 6mp camera that was a full-scale replica of the 127-film Rollei TLR, or a 10mp camera that was a replica of the 120-film Rollei TLR, that would be cool.

But it's just a cheezy knock-off.

Oh, sure. You can buy 2MP cameras in the checkout line at the grocery store these days. But I can be a sucker for packaging...

It's just I've got a Rollei 35, which would have been much more appropriate package design for the size. I've also got a stack of 120-film TLRs (although no Rollei TLRs). It's incredibly pointless packaging.

I concur. I don't even mind the 2mp, but it should be the same size. The mini look makes it seem like something you got out of the gumball machine.

...and the "Baby Rollei" (127-film) is already small enough.
