This Rollei B35 is a loveable little companion. It was made in 1970 and it's the smallest 35mm camera ever made, a little larger than a pack of cigarettes. This is truly a pocket camera. It's also beautifully made and finished in satin chrome and black leather, it's a design classic.

The lens is a Carl Zeiss Triotar. A lovely lens that pushes into the body when not in use. The built in light meter is accurate. It works on solar power, no need for batteries. The camera is in perfect working condition, I've tested it, it's fully functional with everthing working. I'd describe it as in very good condition, with normal signs of use. I took the beach photo on the sidebar using a Rollei B35 camera.

This little camera is a delight to use. It's totally mechanical, no electronics, it could go on taking great photos for another lifetime.

Film is 35mm color or black and white, it's readily available and can be processed by most drug stores and camera shops.
