The Minox family of cameras is in a class by itself. They revolutionized photography by making tiny cameras available to the masses since before World War II. They are truly the "long-distance runner" of subminiature photography since their cameras and cassettes can still be purchased today.
All Minox subminis are viewfinder cameras with a 15mm lens, which has a similar field of view to a 50mm lens on a 35mm camera. Most models have a manually-focusing (8" to infinity) f/3.5 lens, although the lenses vary in design. All models have a lens that is fixed at the maximum aperture. They all take the same film cartridge, which is still readily available.
If you know what you Minox services need, the first place to check is the SPONSORS section of the SUBCLUB. These are businesses that specialize in our needs.
