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. After I got it all figured out and experimented with the images, they were not worth all the effort. The camera went back in the box, and now sits on a shelf in my office.

Minature digital Minox

gfbpsm, Ebay
25 January 2013
  • Summary: This tiny camera is a functional digital camera which produces surprisingly good results. It is tiny by any standard and looks so cool. It has many good features built in but I was disappointed with the feel of the camera. It is not made in Germany as was the usual practice and the build quality is a bit less than I would expect. Despite that I have achieved some surprisingly good results. Whilst it will not replace my pro cameras it is fun to use.

A-

Denis, Amazon

  • 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. So far, so good and expect that it will work and play as advertised, otherwise I would have given it 5 stars.

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. If it cost $20 or $30 like a toy camera, then it would be worth buying if for nothing else than the fun and conversations of it in a bar.

Fabulous Camera

sgam5751, Ebay
2 August 2012
  • Summary: This camera was a Father's Day gift for my husband. He knows the reputation of the Minox cameras. After owning one of the Minox film cameras he was anxious to have a digital. I was thrilled to find this one online. When I gave this to my husband he couldn't believe it. He was very excited. He takes it wherever he goes. It is small and fits his pocket well. We both are well pleased with camera and the clear pictures it takes.

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 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.

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. 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.
