Convenience, ease of use, and compact shooting are three things that a film photographer can think of when asked to give three characteristics when it comes to the Minox 35 ML. The compact snap shooter opens up like a folding camera to showcase its 35mm 2.8 lens that hides inside its tiny little body. But don’t dwell on size alone; the Minox 35 ML takes clear pictures with every click of the shutter.

Introduced to the market in the 1980s by Minox, the 35 ML fetched quite a handsome price for its technology and design during the time. It was considered as a high end camera with its sleek black body and flash that goes well with the lines and aesthetics of the camera. As far as pocket cameras go, the Minox 35 ML could best any compact shooter anytime, anywhere.

    I have shot some of my favourite ever photos using this camera! I tend to be a bit snobby with camera's but this camera realyl does provide excellent results the lens seems to be so much sharper and co-operative with the meter in comparison to the Cosina/Porst/Lomo LC-A.
