Minox C and "automatic" shutter speed

  1. What is the longest shutter speed the Minox C will use in "automatic" mode? I think I read somewhere that it's around 7 seconds, but I can't seem to find a definitive answer.
  2. There are 4 distinct main versions (aside from any model marking
    variations) of the C model. The earliest has a Complan lens and a
    shutter that is rated at a maximum of 7 seconds on auto. The second
    version has a Minox lens, also with a 7 second shutter. The third
    version has a 10 second shutter and an external trim change. The film
    counter window and the shutter button hole lose the little raised
    ridge around them and the counter window has rectangular corners, now
    matching the BL styling. The final version is the same as the third
    except that a red LED replaces the white light bulb as the slow speed
    warning signal. It has been my experience that these maximum times
    should be taken with a grain of salt, as they tend to vary a bit.
