Minox 35 EL compact 35mm film camera.


Ultra Compact folding 35mm manual focus camera with Aperture Priority semi-automatic shutter operation. Made in Germany.

The Minox 35 EL, introduced in 1974, was the first in the line of Minox 35mm miniature cameras. It has a Color-Minotar 1:2.8, f=35mm scale-focusing lens that collapses into the body when the lens cover is closed (like the folding cameras of the past). It was designed for the now-obsolete PX27 5.6 volt battery, but a stack of four LR44 batteries (wrapped with tape as insulation) will give accurate exposures if the film speed is set two stops slower. Tested and fully working.
