In 1966 a very small mechanical 35 mm cameras called Rollei 35 was launched. At the time
it was the smallest ‘full frame’ 35 mm camera in the world. The camera was
designed by Heinz Waaske. Mr. Waaske invented this small camera while working at Leitz
Wezlar. The Leitz company was not interested; Rollei was.
