The new gold edition of the 5 megapixel Minox Leica M3 has a striking design of black and gold, with the camera packed and presented in a quality dark, satin-lined wooden box with brass hinges.

Minox Press Release

Digital technology with a retro classic look

Exclusive Gold Edition of the MINOX DCC Leica M3 £319.00

Wetzlar, September 2008. The renown Minox DCC Leica M3 5mp is soon to be available in gold.

For lovers of innovative technology but now with an with an added touch of luxury, this unique miniature camera has become a much sought-after classic worldwide in its standard silver colour, but now it is also to become available in classic gold. The new gold edition presents a striking design of black and gold and the camera comes packed and presented in a quality dark, satin-lined wooden box with brass hinges. State-of-the-art technology presented in a classic look.

Just like the silver edition, the gold MINOX DCC Leica M3 looks just like the original full size Leica M 3.  This model has been meticulously miniaturized to one third of the original size but contains the technology of a modern digital camera with 5 million pixels resolution.

Cult status this camera certainly has, which has grown out of the ability that Minox has to engineer miniature products with retro styling.  Not only is this a perfect example but so is the new DSC – Digital Spy Camera – being showcased at Photokina 2008.

While the gold edition catches the eye it still maintains the features of its silver sister, in particular the 1.5 inch TFT colour monitor and memory space.  The engineers have maintained the SD card slot in its tiny body, next to the USB port for transferring data to the computer. Besides normal photography the DCC also records video sequences in AVI format. All data can be stored on an internal 32-MB memory or on 4GB SD cards. Power is supplied by a replaceable Lithium-Ion battery.

Included in the satin-lined wooden box is a Lithium-Ion battery, power pack, USB cable and User Manual.

  2. The Mino DCC is a real jewel.It reminds me so much of the clasical Leica I wanted to have when a was a teenage and could not afford one.I knew a photographer who owned one and the pictures had special quality that is hardly surpassed by many of the the cameras. Leica lenses are magical.
    I also wanted a Minox but I could not afford it either. someone gave a miniature rollei s which I used a couple of time with a seizz lens. Films were hard to get.
    I recently bought a Lumix with a Leica lens and I am extremely happy with it.But I still dream of owning a classical Leica because of nostalgia.
    We photographers enjoy being invisible and miniature cameras with digital technology are coming back.

  4. super little camera- easy to operate but does have a small learning curve on how to use it. great on landscapes hard to use for close ups like flowers. does not like bright white reflected areas and low light inside areas.
