Minox BL CdS Cell Metered Chrome Subminiature Camera
The 'luxury B' only Minox subminiature with a CdS exposure meter. Photographers liked them as you could over-ride the suggested meter setting. We have 2 in stock.
At the time the BL was marketed as a cheaper, smaller alternative, contrasting the Minox C's automation and length. The camera has stood the test of tine, and most Minox photographers today prefer this model to the C or LX - because the BL allows you to over-ride the exposure setting.
