How fast you can rapid fire Minox ?

  1. I tested with a Minox C, unloaded, I can fire 45 shots in 30 sec.
    With my Canon AE-1, I can fire 25 pictures in 30 sec. Looks like Minox is twice as fast as
    35mm camera without motor drive.
  2. My scores: Minox C 42 shots in 30 sec. Contax T2 23 in 30sec; Leica R5 24/30sec; Zeiss Ikon Contessa 17/30 ( it has 270 degree stroke )
    Rollei 35 20/30 sec( left hand film advance ). Minox is indeed almost twice as fast as 35mm cameras, including compact with auotomatic film advance.
  3. 35 in half minute with EC, 40 with IIIs. I thought EC was faster, but it is not, because I cannot always put a finger on its button, when the camera is closed, it covers up the button.
