greenspun.com : LUSENET : Minox Photography : One Thread

I bought a used (very good condition -9) Minox GT 35 with case. I could not find any info can anybody help. By the way it has color(!)-minotar lens.

Many thanks

nadir, Minox GT is the first GT series, first appeared in 1981. It has the same body shape as Minox GT-E, with subtle difference, for instance, GT-E has a Minoxar lens close focus to 70 cm, GT a Minotar lens, close focus to 90 cm. Mode of operation is quiet similar to GT-E It needs a battery to operate, see "Battery" section about 35mm camera battery.

Minox is a scale focusing camera, it is easy to estimate distance

I don't think the GT is the first "G" Minox, I used to own a 35GL, which was older... But don't worry, the 35 GT is a great camera, despite its fragility...

What fragility ?

I have carried my 35GT in a trouser pocket all over Asia and Australia, not mention Europe on and off for the last 4 years and never had any problem with it.

By the way, its not in its brown leather case either.

I love my Minox 35 GT! I have taken some amazing pictures with it and have never had any problems with it either. It is a really nice camera
