4-0 out of 5 stars 36 negatives or transparencies from a 56-gram camera w/ batt
MINOX GmbH, in Wetzlar, the manufacturer of cameras with the
8 x 11 mm film format, launched the MINOX ECX in 1998.
The MINAR 15 mm f/5.6 lens ensures maximum optical performance
of the MINOX ECX. The focal length of the 8 x 11 MINOX format
provides a depth of field range from 1 m to infinity making
manual focusing absolutely superfluous. Thanks to a new mounting
technique and the further developed multicoating of all glass
and air surfaces of the optical system, this unique lens reaches

a resolution of more than 200 line pairs per millimeter, surpas-
sing all series-manufactured lenses for amateur photographers.
FYI, for maximum quality right up to the final color photograph,
MINOX recommends using their Minocolor Pro Film. The new APS
emulsion of this film ensures an exceptionally high resolution.
It is also possible to use all MINOX 8 x 11 mm negative and
transparency films between 25 and 400 ASA. The new film loading
contact signals there is a film in the camera via a LED display
in the viewfinder. The fully automatic aperture priority mode of
the MINOX ECX provides a speed control of the leaf shutter of
between 1/500 and 8 seconds.

Technical data for MINOX ECX:
Film, format: 8 x 11 mm
Film transport: Push-pull rapid wind
Shutter: Electronically controlled diaphragm Shutter
Film speed: Adjustable from ISO 25/12° to ISO 400/27°
LED display:
Red: camera shake warning and battery check
Green: film is loaded
Lens: Four-element MINAR-Fixfocus lens
Lens hood: Permanently fitted
Frame counter: Counting down from 36, 30 to 0 or from 15 to 0
Flash connection: Special contact for MINOX flash ECX
Body: Glass-fibre reinforced plastic material
Dimensions (LxWxH): 8 x 3 x 1,8 cm (when closed)
Weight (with battery): Approx. 56 g
What you get: MINOX ECX Set includes battery, strap and film, +
this accessory: MINOX flash ECX.
About the included flash:
Extraordinary design, but powerful. Electronic flash with guide
number 12 (ISO 100/21°).
Attention, serious macrophotographers:
the model ECX does-NOT include a "measuring chain". Should you
wish a Minox 8x11 with an attached measuring chain, go for their
60682 TLX set with meter chain
60683 TLX set with feet chain
60684 TLX with meter chain
60685 TLX with feet chain.
The measuring chain has beads along its length which permit one
to properly distance the camera from the document that is being
photographed.

5-0 out of 5 stars 35mm Minox???
In short, this is NOT your family's vacation camera. If you want something to throw around, and possibly lose, i'd suggest another camera. This is a seirous camera. With a MINOXAR lens, you can take sharp pictures that can easily be blown up to 11x14 wihtout a lot of grain. If you have money to spend, and you want a camera that will give you excellent prints, I'd recommend this one. It's also very lighta and compact, with a very fast lens. ... Read more

SInce I was a kid, I always wanted one of those tiny spy cameras I saw in the movies. Now I have one. I have no idea when or how I'll use this camera, and the small negative guarantees less than stellar picture quality, but who cares. It's neat.

3-0 out of 5 stars back from vacation
The Minox CD-140 date camera is simple to use , the small viewfinder takes some getting use-to. the controls are simple to understand and easy to use. The quality of photos taken on vacation with this camera are excellent, colors are true and images are crisp and clear ( but no better than my 8 year old Nikon LiteTouch AF ). Not sure if it was worth the extra cost when looking at other similar cameras. Have to see how this camera holds up over the next 10 years, hope its better than my pentax...

5-0 out of 5 stars Awesome Camera
This is the best Camera I have ever owned. I scrapbook and I am so happy with the Quality and colors of my photo's. Definetly Reccomend.

2-0 out of 5 stars The MINISCULE VIEWFINDER is a TREMENDOUS Problem
Believe me, and believe any other review that criticizes the tiny viewfinder on this camera. It may have top-quality optics and an abundance of admirable features, but you're likely to miss most photo opportunities (especially in twilight and darkness) as you struggle to place the viewfinder over your eye.

Most of the photos we obtained with this Minox captured the moment after a great picture COULD HAVE been taken, and even then were generally off-center. I thought I would become acclimated, but frustration got the better of me and the camera was returned for refund.

1-0 out of 5 stars This camera has flaws
The viewfinder is VERY small. The viewfinder is also located too near to the center of the camera, so I kept bumping my nose into it when I take pictures. Also, the camera failed to rewind the film automatically, so I had to manually take out the roll, which ruined all my pictures, all the precious shots I took. I had to return the camera.

5-0 out of 5 stars Perfect point-and-shoot camera!!
The Minox CD 140 is probably in the top 5 of all point-and-shoot cameras with a long zoom.

It's easy for a complete beginner to use, but has light controls for the more advanced photographer (macro, panorama, flash cancel, etc.). There is no manual aperture setting or other controls like this, but do you really want/need that in a point and shoot camera?

I own the date back version of this casera and am very happy with its overall performance. I *really* wanted to get a Leica C1, but am glad I did not - no point. The Leica versions at this end of the point and shoots are overpriced for the same or lower quality as this Minox with its Minoctar lens. Sharp and crisp photos.

Another very important part of this camera that peopel overlook is that it is NOT a step zoom. This means that the zoom does not move in preset settings. E.g., on the Leica C1 you can only zoom to 38, 50, 75, 90, etc. With this Minox you can zoom to ANY distance between 38 and 140.

The camera also ha an excellent "feel" to it. Some point and shoot cameras feel so cheap (plastic doodads) and others are so "slick" that they feel tinny. Not this one. It is made of high quality material and there is a part made of grip rubber that helps you get a great grip on the camera (visible on left side of the camera picture - looks like a black half-moon).

The other features: Active infrared autofocus, Maximum zoom range, Automatic flash, Preflash for red-eye reduction, Quality lens, etc. are all excellent.

There is ONLY one weakness I can think of: Small viewfinder (to look at what you are shooting). This takes a little getting used to, but is simple enough. This is the ONLY drawback.

I also own a higher-end Nikon SLR and Minolta SLR, but this is my back-up point and shoot "fun" camera. I *strongly* recommend this camera. I did a LOT fo research on point and shoots before buying this one. Again, I am very glad I bought this one. You will be too. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars great camera but needs internal flash
The lens and the resulting image quality is really, really good. The camera is easy to use. And the flash system is really good too. However, this flash is separate from the camera body and it's almost as big as the camera itself. It's difficult to carry both the camera and the flash in your pocket.

5-0 out of 5 stars Finally, I found my dream camera...
Well, I was lucky enough to buy the last Minox GT-E in stock in Amazon about a month ago. It was a set with the flash and very, very good price.

Before Minox, I mainly used Lomo as my camera. I don't know much about camera as Lomo is a very simple and easy-to-shoot camera. I am still learning photography with Minox but I am sure I made an excellent choice.

If you are looking for a nice P&S camera that has everlasting value, Minox GT-E is it!

5-0 out of 5 stars Indispensible travel camera
I've used variations of this camera for 20 years. If you are willing to make a few simple manual settings you will be rewarded with truly sensational photos. The 2.8 lens is far superior (and faster) than any of the pocket all-auto zoom cameras. Once or twice when my Nikon failed, I finished a professional shoot with the Minox. Nobody could tell the difference in the final prints.

If you really want to travel light, skip the flash and learn to use the backlight compensation. This will work for many underlit situations but not at night.

5-0 out of 5 stars minox 35
I use a model GTX...almost the same as this one. This a great camera for the unexpected opportunity shot. From pants pocket to exposure takes about 3 seconds with the focus preset dots. It's a fast draw camera for sure. The lens quality is GREAT. I recently enlarged a color negative from this camera to 20 x 30 inches and it looked good. I'm in love.

4-0 out of 5 stars minox gte for the creative photographer
The Minox GTE is a no nonsense high quality photographic machine.It has an excellant 2.8 high speed lens. The camera uses scale focus, this means you estimate the subject distance and set the lens to that distance. It has no range finder. You can set the F stop you desire and the camera will set the shutter speed. You can of course set the shutter speed indirectly buy ajusting the arpeture ring on the lens. The selected shutter speed can be read in the view finder. All curent versions of the camera feature a snap shot index on the lens. Simply line up the green marks on the lens (f8 and between 10-20ft) and almost everything records in pretty darn good focus. It has a 2x exposure switch and a self timer. This 35mm camera is so small theres no excuse for not always having it with you. The price is a little high, but it is a German camera with a German lens. On the GTE you set the film speed, this allows for extra exposure compensation control. The camera features a 1/500 sec. top shutter speed. The only thing I really wished it had was an exposure lock button. This is a great camera for the thinking photographer who can use his or her knowledge to creativly shape there images. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars This is the one!
I have owned this camera for over a year now and it has performed superbly. I bought it for it's "point and shoot" simplicity and I "got it all". The pictures are always in focus and exposure level never misses. This camera has to be one of the best engineered and executed products I have ever held in my hands. The pure quality built into this camera makes me wonder if Minox is making a profit. (I would have paid a lot more for it, knowing what I do now.) If I ever drop it in the ocean accidently and lose it, I will buy another without hesitation.

It is the quietest camera I have ever used. It is built like a brick and weighs like a feather. What can I say? The fit and finish are perfect. The optics are superb. I have used, abused, dropped, banged, and neglected this camera and have been rewarded with flawless operation through it all.

If you want a true "point and shoot" camera and still have crisp, razor sharp photos that rival any SLR's, then buy this one. I have NEVER regretted buying it and I have been through many other cameras.

5-0 out of 5 stars BANG FOR THE BUCK
Originally, I wanted a Yashica T4 after reading stellar reviews on the Net. Unfortunately, they no longer make this camera. My search continued and I came across the Minox CD 140. Got my first roll of film back (Agfa Vista 200) and can only say that the pictures are breathtaking! Razor sharp, clear, vivid and brilliant. The camera is easy to operate and has great features without overkill. Fits nice in the hands and has a nice "solid feel" to it. Comes with strap and case in which the camera fits snug. As for the supposed "small viewfinder", I didn't think it any smaller than my other two cameras I own. Get this camera. Unbelievable pictures, easy to use, nice features, great value. A "Leica" at a fraction of the cost. I am totally satisfied.

3-0 out of 5 stars Good Pictures but problem with white curved lines
I bought the Minox Cd 140 strictly on the reviews from this site which is usually a good predictor of the products quality and value. After I received the camera I was pleased with how it operated and looked except that it has a step zoom instead of continuous zoom like someone said in a previous review. I think there is about 5 steps. I took my first roll of pictures and was pleased with the quality except there was these curved white lines in the upper left corner of almost all of my pictures. I wasn't sure if it was the developer or the camera so I took another roll and the white lines were in that roll also (which was in the negatives also). I had to come to a conclusion that it was a mechanical problem so I had to send it back. I probably would of kept this camera if the lines weren't in the pictures. I guess I got the bad one in the batch. I have to give it a 3 based on my experience but otherwise it is a good camera. I don't think this is a prevalent problem or I would have heard about it somewhere.

I have found the ideal point and shoot camera - the Minox CD 140. I read a review on this camera and did some research on it and decided that I would take a leap of faith and bought it. I was so pleased when I got my pictures back and saw how amazingly sharp, beautiful and precise they were. The coloring was excellent, the detail magnificent. For a point and shoot camera, my photos all look professional. I bought it through Amazon.com, after a lot of complications with smilephoto.com(I'll never attempt to do business with them again). This camera is marvelous. I highly recommend it to anyone. I only ranked it at a four, for one minor reason, the viewfinder is small and takes some adjusting to.Other than that it is perfect!

4-0 out of 5 stars Excellent quality images, poor on ergodynamics
I own a Nikon N6006 SLR and set out to buy a point-and-shoot for convenience. I bought both a Minox CD 140 and an Olympus Stylus Zoom 140 QD. I shot a roll of film with all three at once, then blinded sorted the the match sets of three pictures of each image based on which were best. My findings:

1. The Nikon SLR was not consistently the best. In fact, the difference between the pictures from the SLR and the two point and shoots was remarkably smaller than I expected.

2. The Minox had somewhat better color, focusing, and contrast than did the Olympus. The difference, however, was slight.

3. The Olmpus was better designed than the Minox. The Olympus fit better in the hand, the clamshell cover gave more protection, it had a greater zoom range, the viewfinder was slightly larger and set back from the camera body (so your nose doesn't bump the camera as much), and the diopter adjustment was nice. On the plus side for the Minox, the placement of the Minox zoom buttons was more comfortable for me than than the Olympus ones, and the Minox turned on and off markedly faster than the Olympus. Also, the Minox case was more practical.

Both point and shoot cameras would be excellent options. Get the Minox if picture quality is paramount; get the Olympus if you want more features and better comfort in your hands. ... Read more
