From 1976-2003, these cameras were amongst the smallest 35mm and highest quality cameras with the highest Tessar lens. Battery supplies are no problem. From £99, refurbished, serviced, guaranteed. We have been selling these camera since 1976 and repairing them since 1991.
First and successful Minox 35. Aperture priority, very high quality 35mm F2.8 Minotar lens Tessar type four elements three group design. Single-coated.
Upgraded EL with new internals and backlight +2 exposure button. Over 630k sold 1981-1994. Still used today. Underpriced compared with similar cameras. E
Further improvements and added a self-timer. Sold in huge numbers (663,000). Very popular, very easy to repair and refurbish with a new ISO dial. Same excellent lens quality.
First Minox with programmed exposure. and aperture priority. Simple LED metering with same lemns as the GT. Very popular. Undervalued compared with the Minox ML. PE variant had a built-in electronic flash, much harder to find working.
Upgraded LED metering with new Programmed mode and common PX28 battery. Reliability issues throiughout its life. Most can be repaired today. Not as popular as the GT series of cameras. Mysterious extra LED on front.
New fixed-focus 35 f4 4 element Minar lens, exposure by weather symbol. Two versions in black or white: the white version was popular with our scientific and medical customers.
Titanium-covered Minox ML with an upgraded Color-Minoxar 35 f2.8 lens. A Tessar 4 element 3 group lens but with multi-coating, compared with the single-coated Color-Minotar used from the EL onwards. Heavier than a ML and prone to light leakage from the top of the back.
Priced similar to a Contaxt T, but never came up to the features.
Using the new Color-Minoxar lens with a updated body finish to the GT (red go-faster stripes along with better gripping and a new battery chamber taking 2 x Cr !/3n batteries.
£220 when available. Matching GT-E flashes alspo availablr.
Redesigned ASA/DIN dial with no more transfer, silver finish, miuch better styling than the GT-E and also with upgraded lens. Very sought after and hard to find.
DX coding added for automatic film speed detection (hence the X) but let down by 'crumbly' outer plastic shell which literally breaks down in your hands. Otherwise a MINOX GT-S. Only use one is the body already affected or it will spoil.
Launching a new Sony E-mount adapter for the color-minotar 35mm f2.8. If there is enough interest we can make our own Fuji -X adapter.
This is a new adapter made by ourselves with every adapted lens calibrated for the lens mount. In box with cover. Hood recommended.
If this sells, then we can adapt the fixed focus Color-Minar 35mm F4 (AL) and Color-Minoxar 35mm F2.8 MC (GT-E/GT-S) to the list of adapted lenses.
