A Conversation for Minox Spy Cameras

What a fantastic entry. I worked in a camera shop for a while and was privileged enough for the owner to let me see his "Classic Collection". There were a couple of Minox's, a Rollei and at least 2 other sub mini's (as well as an early pristine Olympus OM10 - my fave camera). Sadly I didn't know enough about the industry at the time and have no idea what the models were. But this entry bought back some very happy memories for me. Thanks Ben.

I am glad you like it.
I was in Copenhagen the other day, (as you do ) and saw some sub-miniature Leicas; tiny little replica Leicas which used the 11mm Minox films.
The only thing which is a pain - and it is a COMPLETE pain - is that it is almost impossible to get the film developed in the UK. I had a choice of about three shops which developed Minox films when I lived in Hamburg (proper little Globe-trotter, me, I have even spent 6 months in Stevenage! )
Thanks for taking the time to say you liked the entry.
