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.
