Although the majority of cameras in this section are made by Minox, many are not. And although 90% of the cameras in this section use the Minox cassette, some do not -- even though they use Minox film. The film was originally designed from splitting unperforated 35mm film into four strips.  35mm film is not really 35mm wide.  It is 1 3/8" wide.  Splitting this four ways produces 0.34375" wide film or 8.73mm.  This is what the original Minox used.  This was increased years later to around 9.2mm -- barely noticeable.  The film width has never been 9.5mm as commonly seen.  In fact, 9.5mm film will jam Minox-sized cassettes and cameras.
