Yes, it is quite similar. I found this list of differences, but I am not sure if some are really differences:
Rolleiflex 6008 Professional (1988-1992) features:
Advanced light metering with SPOT meter.
Metering now with aperture priority or program priority.
Convenient adjustable handgrip.
High definition viewing screen.
Auto bracketing available.
Uses the SCA 3000 TTL flash system rather than the 300-series system.
And the SRC 1000 can use the PQS lenses to 1/1000s.
Rolleiflex 6008i or Integral (1995-?) features:
Fully featured camera.
Instant return mirror with pre-release facility.
Attachable Master Electronic Control unit to allow remote release, and offers additional metering options.
Can disengage film advance for multiple exposures.
Has an optional "silent mode" where film advance and mirror return are both slowed down.
TTL lighting control possible with non-dedicated flash units or steady studio lighting.
Daylight interchangeable backs with integral darkslide.
Auto film advance to first exposure and Auto-rewind.
Motorized film advance at 2.5 frames per sec.
Multi-spot metering available.
Auto bracketing of 3 exposures +/- 2/3 EV with a manual option in 1/3 steps from -4 2/3 to +2EV.
Auto exposure lock.
Center-weighted metering with 7 photocells in 5 groups behind mirror.
Two Linear Motors for aperture and shutter control.
Solenoid controlled shutter release.
Cable release facility available.
Convenient multi-position "Action Grip" is attachable.
Jack for 14-pin remote control cable/or "Master Control".
Pre-release mirror capability.
Some of these overlap. Of the differences only potentially the instant return mirror and auto-exposure lock would bother me, and maybe the cable release. Can you confirm that your camera doesn't have an instant return mirror, i.e. after making a shot, the mirror returns to viewing position? This seems odd to me, as it is a motorised camera, I would have expected that they all have this. Maybe it is just the pre-release which is new. And the daylight interchangeable backs I think is also common to all the cameras.
Yes, no problem! I will work on finding this out as soon as I am able to, and as soon as I read those huge awesome manuals!
