Camera Manufacturer Rollei was Founded 100 Years Ago (February 1, 2020)

In the realm of photography the name Rollei reverberates, even today. The company’s Rolleiflex camera enjoys cult status. It all goes back to the ingenious mechanic and founder Reinhold Heidecke. To turn his vision for a new kind of camera for the up and coming roll film into reality, he and businessman Paul Franke found the Werkstatt für Feinmechanik und Optik, Franke & Heidecke in 1920. One of their first products, the Rolleidoscope, is the first roll film camera to produce stereoscopic pictures. Later it would lend the company and brand its name “Rollei”.

Eight years after the company’s founding Heidecke’s and Franke’s dream finally becomes reality: The Rolleiflex is the first twin-lens reflex camera that uses roll film in a 6x6 cm format. The camera is unusually compact thanks to its two lenses that lie atop of each other. It is very robust and also provides very high image quality, making it popular with professional photographers and photojournalists.

In the coming years the company develops additional models, such as the less expensive Rolleicord and tirelessly works on improving the Rolleiflex. The camera finally has its golden years in the 1950s, thanks to a lack of competitors but also thanks to the development of new equipment such as telephoto and wide-angle lenses and its underwater-housing.

After Heidecke's death in 1960—Franke passed away 10 years earlier—Rollei undergoes a complete restructuring due to a massive expansion of its product line. However, the only successful new product is the Rollei 35, a miniature camera the size of a pack of cigarettes. Business is up and down with a changing roster of CEOs and owners, the opening and closing of a number of production sites, bankruptcies and outsourcing as well as the sale of trademark and licensing rights. Today the label Rollei primarily sells photo and camera accessories as well as actioncams and dashcams.
