Do you appreciate the retro styling of classic cameras? Are you intimidated by film and weird analogue switches? Minox have just the thing for you. Their classic camera collection updates and miniaturises the sort of cameras your grandparents would have used. Their latest addition takes the 1954 Leica M3 and makes it 2011 friendly.
Aside from being a third of the original size, the Minox Classic Camera features a 5.1 megapixel lens, a two-inch display and attachable view-finder. You can even shoot AVI video footage and store it directly to an SD card, which is nice. The wooden box it comes packaged in and the various accessories you can bolt on are also appreciated.
Incidentally, Minox has a long history of miniaturising things, they were the CIA’s go-to guys during the Cold War and produced a series of micro cameras for American spies. These days they make novelty cameras for people with a retro fetish. Make of that what you will.
You can pick up a Minox Classic Camera for $180.
