For some time now, game cameras have been gaining popularity in the field of hunting and gamekeeping and are an extremely useful tool for recording detailed information on game populations, making it easier to observe and care for wild animals in hunting grounds and game parks.
As of late, there has also been a growing demand from the civilian sector for monitoring equipment. MINOX has now responded to this development and has launched the recently presented MINOX DTC 600 model in an unobtrusive grey finish. Whether for monitoring a house and garden, weekend cottage, boats, company premises etc. – this DTC 600 takes recordings of all activities discretely and inconspicuously, and thanks to its black filter in front of the IR flash it is completely invisible to people.
Supply of MINOX 8x11 films and repair service will be maintained

Game cameras have been used for checking, recording and research purposes in nature oberservation and game parks for a long time now, and have become an essential tool in the field of hunting and gamekeeping.

Small and compact, this new MINOX DTC 600 also features a black filter in front of the IR flash, making it completely invisible to animals and people!
“German” and “optics.” There are hardly two words in the outdoor product market that seem to fit better together than these two. When combined, they seem to symbolize quality, durability, and dependability. Minox sport optics products have come to stand for these enduring features as well.
Headquartered in the optics capitol of Europe, Wetzlar, Germany, Minox has been producing high quality and innovative optical products for 75 years, beginning with the world famous “spy camera” developed by company founder, Walter Zapp in 1936.
MINOX, the Wetzlar-based company of tradition, continues to expand on the Asian market. By opening a further flagship store in Kuala Lumpur MINOX will now be offering its products “Made in Germany“ on the Malaysian market.
On track for further expansion: MINOX launches MINOX Asia Ltd. and continues to strengthen its position
MINOX, the German company steeped in tradition, has taken the growing demand for products of German brand manufacturers as well as the constantly expanding and lucrative market environment in Asia as an opportunity to found a subsidiary, MINOX Asia Ltd., in the Far East.
Spy games - German gadget maker MINOX has rolled out its spy cameras and speciality binoculars in Singapore
Mention the spy camera and images of James Bond using this miniature device in his espionage pursuits come to mind. Such novelty is a reason the gadget is regarded as a collector's item, one which the company behind it hopes would find its way into the portfolio of hobbyists in Singapore.
The MINOX MD50 is also comparatively new to the scene, although it takes up the price range previously occupied by Kowa’s 50mm spotter that appears to have been discontinued. Before these models from Vortex and Minox showed up, selecting a compact spotter was a pretty straightforward affair: if you wanted the best one available, you had to pony up the cash for Nikon’s smallest Fieldscope.
MINOX has long been dedicated to conserving our natural resources and ensuring outdoor recreation opportunities for generations to come. MINOX has now become a supporting sponsor of the Theodore Roosevelt Conservation Partnership.

Best New Scope: Minox ZA5 1.5-8x32mm With Versa-Plex Reticle
As constitutionally suspicious as I am of the whole concept of one-size-fits-all, I must say that Minox’s effort at building a scope for use on a shotgun, mountain rifle, or big-bore dangerous-game stopper is remarkably successful.
The Tactical Wire, August 18, 2011
MINOX, known best for their legendary spy camera and wide range of high-quality binoculars, now has established a strong position in riflescopes as their ZA5 1.5~8x32 with Versa-Plex reticle has been named Best of the Best for 2011 by Field & Stream.
With the model BN 7x50 DC of the new NAUTIK Line MINOX has set a new milestone in the development of innovative and revolutionary products: the MINOX BN 7x50 DC is fitted with the latest state-of-the-art technology and offers water-sports enthusiasts many important features such as a digital compass, barometer, stopwatch, tilt function altimeter and temperature display.
The biggest challenge in the design of the new BN 7x50 DC was the integration of the digital compass in the binocular body. A task that the competent Volkswagen Design Team took in their stride and created a binocular body that stands out with a superb ergonomic and functional design.
MINOX and Volkswagen Design can look back on a longstanding cooperation. The engineers and developers of the Wetzlar-based optics manufacturers MINOX, and the creative team at Volkswagen have been working together for fifteen years already. The presentation of many renowned design awards, including the Design Prize of the Federal Republic of Germany – the most prominent award in Germany – underscores the successful cooperation of these two Germany companies. Both Volkswagen and MINOX can boast a longstanding tradition and decades of experience. MINOX products offer highest quality standards, maximum precision, solidity and longevity.
“The identity and tradition of the brand MINOX features a very strong design component. On this basis we develop a design concept that is geared to refine and provide new interpretations of these values. The result will naturally always coincide with the goals and the quality standards of Volkswagen Design“, commented head designer Klaus Bischoff.
The new MINOX BN 7x50 DC also has a good chance of receiving one of the coveted German design awards.
