Minox film price to camera price ratio

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Minox Photography : One Thread

One roll of 36 exp Minopan 100 is about $8, and the price of a Minox 8x11 camera (TLX ) is $950 at www.minoxlab.com site. At present day, the price of a package of Minox film is about 1% of that of a camera.

In 1939, a VEF Minox was advertised in Zurich for 290 Swiss Francs and a roll of 50 exp film was 2.90 Francs. The ratio then was exactly 100: 1

The price of film vs camera has'nt changed that much for over 60 years.
