Minox 35 GT: It's a Small World

Sounds like an old sports car but it isn't. With a size of 10x6x3 cm it is definitely too small to get you out on the country lane.

My first impression was like "Wow, this one is a really small one“…Then I had to open intuitive the front cover and with a smooth slide the 35mm Color Minotar lens f/2.8 came out. Nice one, really cool feature. To get some film loaded you got to take the back off, like you do with a FED or a Zorki. It`s focusing range is from 0.9m to infinity, has an automatic exposure control and even the shutter is electronically controlled. Times vary from 1/500 second up to 30 seconds if you`re using a 25ASA film. The ASA range is from 25 up to 800, quite modern for a 80`s camera. Oh, and nice as well, it comes with a self timer. And don`t forget the hot shoe which takes any electronic flash unit…

When I shot my first roll I always had the problem that I couldn’t shoot if I wanted to, because for advancing the film you`ve got to pull the film transport lever twice. This is a confession to the camera`s size, but you`ll get used to it. Meanwhile I sold this one because I haven`t used it for a long time and others feel much more happy with it. So if there is one around just grab it and have fun
