This is possibly the smallest folding 127 camera ever made. A range of lens and shutter combinations were available, this is one of the more basic models with a 5cm f4.5 Novar lens and a Derval shutter. I've never used it before, and have loaded it with a roll of Efke 100.

Minox EC spy camera, a photo by pho-Tony on Flickr.
Minox were famous for making a range of precision, expensive miniature spy cameras. This isn't one of them. Made towards the end of the Minox story, this tiny camera has a fixed aperture of f5.6 and fixed focus, it does however have a fully automatic electronic shutter with speeds from 1/500th to 8 seconds, so it can be used in very low lighting conditions provided there is something to rest it against. The camera came with a 15 exposure film, which though expired will hopefully still have some life in it. The film is 9.5mm wide and takes images 8mm x 11mm.
