The question arises as to whether this adorably cute mini replica of the classic Leica film camera is a sophisticated toy or a real camera with practical uses. As a long-time aficionado of the Leica M3, which I used for 20 years from 1960 until I finally retired it with the advent of SLR cameras with zoom lenses, I find this miniature a nostalgic reminder of a bygone era, but surprisingly, with a bit of care it is capable of taking quite decent pictures.

This lifts it well above the toy category, but not without serious limitations. The accompanying "mini" manual is silent regarding some major technical details like aperture, shutter speed, ISO, etc. It is essentially fixed focus from infinity down to two meters, with manual adjustments for 1 meter and 0.5 meters (19"). It is aperture priority, with variable shutter speeds depending on lighting conditions. Based on a check of "Properties" after downloading, all my photos so far are at an ISO of 100, so that interior shots require a steady hand with a slow shutter speed, as the maximum aperture appears to be f3.7. A rather cumbersome flash attachment is available as an expensive accessory, and so it's best to avoid low-light photography with this camera. There is a very limited movie option, which I will most likely never use.

The lens is 9mm, or 42mm in 35mm format, which users of typical point-and-shoot digitals accustomed to a 28mm wide angle zoom lens will find seriously limiting. A wide angle attachment is available as an accessory for $80, which I do not have, and which would detract from the camera's small-size advantage.

Made in Germany with a Leica lens and classic styling, the camera is a bargain with limitations:

+ controls are easy to reach and use (mode/up/down/shutter release)
+ 6 degrees of zoom (controlled by up/down buttons)
+ 3 quality settings (low, normal, high)
+ adjustable focal length (using a functioning ring around the lens)
+ adjustable white balance (daylight or cloudy, lamp or tungsten) and exposure value (+ or - 0.3)
+ detachable view finder
+ video
+ 128 MB built in storage (accepts HD storage cards up to 16 MB, sold separately)
+ self-timer
+ wooden presentation box

- no image-stabilizationn (accepts a mini tripod, but that defeats the "spy camera" function)
- no built-in flash (external unit available, again defeating the "spy camera" function)
- apparently does not support Mac OS 10.7 (claims to support OS 9 and 10, but has no drivers for download; prepare to use a card reader)
- apparently no manuals for download from the Minox.com site (despite printed claims packaged with the camera)
- pricey though non-essential add-ons (if you want them, check Amazon for sellers packaging the camera with flash and accessories)

Overall a fun camera if it isn't your only one. Five stars for looks, two stars for functionality.

I purchased this camera to keep on me at all times when I'm out and about as my pro camera is too heavy and too pricey (if lost, damaged, or stolen). I've had this camera for about a month. The look and size make it a fun little gadget. Works like a camera phone. You must have a steady hand for sharp images. I think for the price it should offer a bit more function and quality, but I knew what I was getting when I bought it. Overall, I'm happy with it.
