So-so

Rita M, Amazon

  • Summary: Complicated instructions. Not what I remembered. It's cute and probably good but I got spoiled with Minox 35 DL from 30+ years ago

Poor image quality

Tenna Merchent, Amazon
22 December 2013
  • Summary: This is a tiny, cute, retro camera. But the image quality is lame. It just isn't worth it to me. I can get much better images with my phone than I can with this camera. It is another expensive trinket that sits on my office bookshelf.

Images are only okay

Tenna Merchent, Amazon
22 December 2013
  • Summary: I was really excited about this camera because it is tiny and retro. Well the images are only okay. The focus is weak to say the least. There was not lens cap, and the instruction manual was not in English, so I had to get on-line and find one.

A-

  • Summary: Camera was delivered promptly and appeared to be as represented; however, it would not take a charge. Contacted the Minox Corporate offices directly and they forwarded a ship label and sent the camera to them. New camera came in and took a charge, and now we begin to play and see how it works.

Cute but not worth it.

Tim Garrett, Amazon
17 September 2012
  • Summary: This digital camera is cute and great conversation in a bar but it takes lousy pics. Although it's a 5.1 MP digital camera, the pictures are blurry. It is nearly impossible to take a clear pic, steady hand or not. So for the price it is NOT worth it.

A Novelty Camera Where Form Trumps Function

M.G. "M. Gilbert", Amazon
29 July 2012
  • Summary: 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...

Fun little camera!

R. A. Guerra, Amazon
23 May 2012
  • Summary: 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.

Looks better than the photos it takes

Will Hard "willard@u.arizona.edu", Amazon
9 April 2012
  • Summary: 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...

Minox 5.1 mp Digital Camera

bonnie andy, Amazon
2 November 2012
  • Summary: I have had mother cameras from minox and sadly I have to say that even though this has more Megapixels and a larger screen on the rear of the camera, the picture quality was not good. The pin sharp detail I have had with other minox cameras is lacking in this model.

A replica Leica? No.

T.J.Byford "TJ", Amazon
10 May 2012
  • Summary: I don't believe this product is actually being marketed as a Leica, buyers assume it is as it has a certain likeness to the great M3. Purely for collectors, especially Leica lovers, or even if you are not and aspire to an M3 but simply can't afford one, this is not the model to get.
