Default Rollei Digital cameras

What does anyone know about Rollei digital cameras. I saw one 4.1 megapixel camera at a decent price but I can find nothing on this brand as it pertains to digital cameras.

Thanks :

There's a link to Rollei here:

They are not (Rollei d 41 com?) inexpensive (european market only?)... Also watch out sometime the digitals are just OEMed (some Leica for example) from the japanese counterpart that's why they can cost control the cost. A real Rollei digital will cost at least an arm and a leg!

I saw the camera on the QVC website that is supposed to be a Rollei. It has 4.1 megapixels and has the specs similar to Rollei d51. I called but they could not tell me the model number.

Thanks,

It's comparable to a Minolta S404 ($497 @ Target):

Thanks for the input! I had been looking at the Olympus C-4000Z for a while. Dell extended ther 15% off and I bought it for $425 with free shipping.

I think this will be a great camera that will allow me to go beyong point and shoot. This is a great website!

Just a final follow-up. I had contacted Rollei USA because on the QVC website the 4.1 megapixel camera had a price of $398.

I just got a reply from Rollei. This camera is a d41, inspected in Germany but made in China. On the QVC website is listed it as made in Germany. They have told QVC to change the error.

I am glad I checked it out here.

Thanks,
