Leica Minilux 35mm Film Camera. Built-In Leica SUMMARIT 40mm f/2.4 Lens. The Leica Minilux is a Japanese point-and-shoot introduced about 1995.
It's a great performer as point-and-shoots go, but it has a tiny viewfinder. It's not intended for serious photography because there is no good way to attach filters. It was intended for amateurs shooting only print film.
Leica eventually replaced it with the Leica CM, which added a hot shoe. If you can get over the lack of filters and its parenthetically tiny viewfinder, the Minilux works extremely well for shooting a pro film like. The Minilux is far superior to the. The Minilux is sharp, focuses and exposes accurately and consistently. The Minilux' flash and its exposure are also excellent, even for demanding transparency film.The Minilux has a nice top-panel exposure readout: even in Professional (P) mode, the top LCD panel quickly alternates between the chosen aperture and shutter speeds. It alternates between them twice as fast as other cameras would, which makes it easy to check the set exposure quickly. The top LCD keeps blinking the exposure last measured, so you can take your finger off the shutter safely as you remove the Minilux from your eye to look at the top. For serious shooters, the rewinding time is a slow 45 seconds. It is reasonably quiet and sounds like it's muted with rubber mounts.
The pictures are upside-down because the film is loaded upside-down and runs backward through the camera. The frame numbers run in the conventional direction, but you'll have to orient your slide mounts upside-down from your SLR and Leica M rangefinder cameras. The Minilux controls are excellent. It's easy to select a guessed-at manual focus distance or to select an aperture in aperture-priority mode. Conventional Gauss-derived 6 elements in 4 groups.
7 blades, which is excellent. Covers 83% of the image.
