greenspun.com : LUSENET : Minox Photography : One Thread

I have wrist watch camera that have no lens inside. Used 400 asa 8x11 film. I shoot the documents that laying on the desk and ceilig is white floursent light. The pictures are fuzzy and color as yellowish. Should I try for black and white color only or how far should i shoot into documents from top? This is purpose of spy camera. There is no flashing on the wrist watch camera.... Please help and advice.

I don't believe your watchcamera has no lens. Its lens is recessed.

You need to set the aperture of your watch camera to between f5.6 to f11. F5.6 being the aperture on Minox EC.

At f5.6 you can get object between 3 feet to infinity in focus.

If you want to copy document, then you need to stop down more.

If your camera has only a fix aperture (ie, there is no aperture control dial at the back of the watch camera ) then don't expect it can copy document.

In general, watch camera is used for taking candid picture of people, not copy document, as these type of camera has not focusing lens.

The yellow colour comes from using daylight film in artificial light. You should use special film for indoor purpose, a blue filter or a flash.
