This Minox series presents work in the form of digital collages that are based on photos and experiments using a Minox C camera. The images, and especially the literally “light painted” structures resulting from the experiments with this camera and its miniature film, were scanned using a high-resolution scanner and then superimposed and compiled on the computer leading to these image compositions.
The trade journal "BirdWatching" tested the MINOX MD 50 W. The result is an excellent price/performance ratio as well as good image quality and solid construction design.

Agents’ Feeling on the Way to High Standards - Star at the Photokina 2008:
The digital spy camera from MINOX
Wetzlar, September the 30th 2008. A spectacular highlight of the Photokina 2008 was the new digital MINOX spy camera. With its red and black colours and equipped in a rustic espionage workshop style, the MINOX booth magically attracted film and camera teams from all over the world. It was supported by attractive female agents going on stalking tours throughout the exhibition center. Their message: The extremely small spy camera with its analogue version, which advanced after over 70 years to a desired cultural object, is now also available in digital version. At www.license-to-shoot.com modern “MINOX agents” may now find an international forum for the direct and innovative world of images enabled by this tiny spy camera.
Spys love it: small, intelligent and very reliable. MINOX cameras have been the dream tool of undercover agents for almost 75 years. To allow this legend to continue in the digital age, miniature optics specialists from Wetzlar have designed the MINOX DSC. This is a miniature camera that features the former 8x11 dimensions and at the same time boasts state-of-the-art technology.
This world premiere with cult potential is on show for the first time at the photokina 2008: This is also where MINOX is presenting everything the future “private-eye” needs for capturing spontaneous, candid digital images, from belt buckle cameras to a filming fountain pen.
The MINOX booth - designed as a spy workshop – focuses on the new MINOX DSC. Here the visitor can discover the possibilities offered by this new License to Shoot – the slogan of the fair presentation: fast, unobtrusive, candid photography - the new digital MINOXgraphy.
