Very strange. Aren’t you supposed to shoot secret documents with a Minox?
Not all Minox are spy camera. Minox 35ML is a pocketable 35mm film
camera. There are other similar 35mm film camera, for example
Olympus X3. Film double perforated 24x36mm roll film
No doubt, Minox 35ML is a small camera, however it is not a spy camera
Minox spy camera such as Minox B, Minox C , Minox TLX use 9.5mm wide film,film format 8mm x 11 mm, about the size of finger nail
Even Minox spy camera, only small percentage being used in
espionage. Many Minox fans use it because it is small and pocketabe.
Prince Philips used Minox to photograph seabirds in southern waters.
Do you think carrying a Minox spy camera would be a problem at immigration/customs (assuming one can travel) if they searched your luggage?
I travelled to China,USA, Great Britain, France, Germany, Italy, Hungary,
Greece, Japan,Thailand, Cambodia, Singapore, Malaysia, with three Miinox
spy cameras, never had any problem at airport security
In 2010, we travelled to The Three Gorge in China, when
stepped on the dam, I was stop by the security, their scanner
found my Minox cameras. They were afraid my cameras may
be empty and filled with expossive. I took the camera and
clicked a few shots and show them the cameras were loaded
with real film. They let us on the dam. Breath taking .
