The Minox-A is a small high-quality subminiature camera that is small enough to be hidden in the palm of a hand. It was built by Minox in Germany between 1948 and 1969.

The body of the camera is made of aluminium rather than stainless steel. It measures only 82 x 27 x 15 mm – when closed – allowing it to be consealed in the palm of a hand very easily.

Before shooting pictures, the camera has to be opened by pulling it outwards from both ends. When ready, it has to be pushed-in again, after which it advances to the next frame.


The Minox A has a mechanical shutter which ranges from 1/2 to 1/1000 sec. It also allows the shutter to be kept open manually (B). The high-precision COMPLAN lens allows focussing from 20 cm (8 inches) to infinity. When turning the focusing dial, the viewfinder moves in tandem to correct for parallax errors. Above the viewfinder is the so-called filter bar, that allows a red or a green filter to be moved in front of the lens. These filters are generally used to increase contrast.
