Launched at Photokina in 1974 sold from 1976, MINOX's entry into the 35mm compact camera market surprised the Japanese and German competitors. There were cameras of a similar size but were heavier and slower to use. The EL was updated in 1977 with film loading improvements.
Siize and weight coupled with lens quality made the EL a market leader.
374k were sold from 1976-1981. Replaced by the equally popular GL, which had major internal improvements and a +2 exposure compensation button.
Launched with a set of simple accessories: UV and ND filter, ST35 flash, leather cases and neck and wrist strap. Filters for the later cameras (GT/ML/PL/PE) do not fit this model.
As the first model, the Minox 35 EL was a basic specification. No backlight (added GL) or self-timer (added GT), or programmed mode (added PL), integrated flash (PE), fixed focus, automation (AL) or upgraded lens (GT-E, GT-S). So it should be and is the most reasonable Minox 35mm compact
