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: 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: One star is too much. This was one of two I ordered - one to replace the other. The electronic controls did not work. I tried three different batteries (one from the package, two new ones from the store) and the camera responded the same. The LCD readout would not display correct information. It was garbled.
Summary: Found the camera a nice replica but much too difficult to use and the built in storage system renders the camera virtually useless for any serious picture taking. Can't recommend this little number for anything other than having a minox digital in the collection. Certainly far below any other Leica standard.
