I thought I would post this link to a short film made by PentaxPete. The latter part shows some prints he made with this camera using Ilford Delta 100 developed in home made FX37.

Thanks for making this Pete as the Minox 35 GT looks like a useful little pocket camera.

ricoh and chinon made similar cameras. I wonder if they suffered the same reliability issues as minox? in fact, they look so similar, I wonder if they aren't the same camera. aside from the reliability thing, I understand the lenses were excellent.

I'm not sure about the other brands Jim. I thought I would post Pete's video link, as it looks like a useful pocket camera.

That's what I thought Jim, they look almost the same to me.

as I seem to recall, though, some of the issues with the minox are fairly easy fixes. I saved a thread on that some time back when I thought about buying one off the 'bay. not too sure I have it anymore. they do look like nifty little pocket cameras.
