Re: [Rollei] 'Must Haves' and RolleiMot

I saw a RolleiMot listed last year in a catalog for one of the large used shops that advertises in ShutterBug, and I recall the asking price was $1,300!  It seems to me that the design of TLRs just doesn't lend itself to a motor drive -- perhaps if TLRs used film magazines like SLRs it would be easier?.

Cranking the film advance has a certain charm, but I'd love to have a motorized TLR if it was practical mechanically and economically. I think Rollei should build a motor drive into their newest TLRs, but another $1,000 or $1,500 would really put the price way out of reach, not to mention the extra size and weight.

I think Bob Shell mentioned last year that he had a RolleiMot.
