This is the 60th anniversary of the first production of one of the most revolutionary cameras in photographic history and it has inspired Minox to bring out the Minox CLX, the latest in the 8x11mm camera series. Walter Zapp’s legendary idea to design and make the Minox originated way back in 1922. The camera “was to be so small that it would disappear in a closed hand”. Although very much inspired by this idea, Walter Zapp was hindered again and again by various financial squeezes, and it took 13 years before he was able to file a patent application for the “Ur” Minox in 1935. The camera comes with a dark grey leather case, film, batteries as well as the famous measuring chain for close-focus shots.
