Interesting little camera with a surprising amount of controls. The contre-jour device sounds particulary useful.I take it that it is manual focus but I wasn't sure how the user knows when the focus is correct.

Thanks

Mike

You have to 'guess'the focus distance and set the focus scale to what you have guessed. There is no rangefinder and no indication 'light' for correct focus in the viewfinder. It is easy enough though. You can see MORE of my MINOX photos including colour neg scans on my Flickr page here :

Cool review, thanks (I have an Oly XA, same size, rangefinder!, but the lens is not up to the Minotar).

Thanks Keith -- I don't 'Cheat' and put on prints done with another make!
I have to show 'smaller' prints under my copy stand as 16x12" mounted Exhibition prints will not fit but I did some 16x12" prints from the Minox and got a 'Sticker' at my Club.
