Summary: I decided to bid on this camera mostly as a collectors item and also because I thought it was pretty cool looking. The fact that it is a digital camera and that it actually works is also a plus since I only paid about $62 for it plus a modest S&H charge. I just shot enough pictures with it to make sure it worked OK and now it is back in its wooden display box on a shelf.

Summary: I love how it looks and use it once and a while and people always want to know more about it. People are always shocked to learn that yes it takes photos. I now leave it on my coffee table, when its not in use so guests can enjoy it and it always sparks great conversations. I was given this as a present and an glad to have this beautiful designed digital camera with the Leica name on it.
Summary: I bought the camera in June of this year and I really like the camera. Although I did not expect the actual size that was kind of tiny, I like the camera and the box that goes with it was also in top shape condition.
Summary: This camera should sell for $29.95 at Toy's R-US. The picture quality even under good lighting conditions and setup to "fine" is terrible. Worse if you use the digital zoom, then the images become unbearably pixelated. Any cell phone camera can take better pictures. No flash, no way to change the date, no shutter or apperture priority, and no programs. You cannot charge the camera unless you connect it to your PC or Laptop, so it's not even practical for traveling.
Summary: Once you've got over the cuteness of it, the fact remains that the mini-Minox/Leica takes lousy pictures, is overly difficult to use and (get this!) doesn't do time stamping of picture files. I was very disappointed with this product and wish I could return it somehow..(I can't!
Summary: Not only is this thing all plastic with FIXED levers that are merely decorative, if you look at the product image carefully you'll see a HUGE black plastic black box on the back of it which even kills the cuteness factor of it. My 35mm Minox at least fit in my pocket, when the lens was folded shut.
Summary: This camera is very small, but the picture quality isnt that great. You could get a canon with much better quality, for the same price. It takes really nice pictures if you use it correctly, in natural light, outdoor shots. However, if you plan on using indoors, this probably isnt the camera for you, unless you plan on purchasing the Classic Flash also. All in all, a really cool camera for the price.
