The Minox Camera

This is the Minox B

The camera was developed in Estonia by  photographer and engineer Walter Zapp in the thirties. The idea was to build a very portable camera of good quality.

Today, however, it is most associated with spys during the cold war. After the second war the manufacturing moved from Riga to West Germany.

The first was the Minox VEF then came different models. It was built and sold even into this millenium.


The negative is 8 x 11 mm and a cassette can hold up to 36 frames.

Film can still be ordered from and developed in London.

The b/w I develope myself in D76.
