Camera Production at the Rolleiflex Factory
The German PhotoScala Magazine made this short film not so long ago. Note the mixture of really old style and high-tech production tools. Anyway it is clear that all cameras are hand-made. Watch the TLR that is undergoing final testing of the film transport. It is held on a small wooden box lined with dark red velvet to protect the lenses. The velvet is so worn and its colour so ancient that the box could be pre-World War II and it was still in use. In 2003 a senior member of staff jokingly told me that the thing was a DIY job by old Mr. Heidecke himself (Reinhold Heidecke, 1881 - 1960, one of the founders of the company).

Behind the Film - Inside the ILFORD factory
See how film is made. Take a look inside the HARMAN technology factory in Mobberley, England where they manufacture the ILFORD and Kentmere ranges of black and white film, photographic paper and chemicals. Find the Rolleiflex (minute 5 and 12).
Film processing with a ‘Refrema’ dip-and-dunk machine.
See how film is developed in a Refrema dip-and-dunk processor at Indie Film Lab. It takes a while before they get to the point and the presenter is quite happy with himself but it nicely shows how the processor works.
