Minox Classic Camera Gets 5 Megapixel Love

by Paul Strauss

The teensy classic Minox Leica M3 was first converted into a digital camera back in 2002 at a measly 1.3 megapixel resolution. Minox has just upgraded the camera to a much more admirable 5 megapixel resolution. (Although they’re only using a 3.2 megapixel CMOS sensor, and interpolating up to 5 megapixels, so they’re cheating a bit.) The camera has also received an upgrade to a rechargeable Li-Ion battery this time around.

Minox DCC Leica M3 Digital Camera

The Minox DCC Leica M3 camera sports a small 1.5 inch TFT display, 32MB of built-in memory and SD card support up to 2GB, since the on board memory can only hold a very small number of high resolution shots. The Minox also offers some other typical digital camera features such as 4x digital zoom and AVI video recording, but who are we kidding? This camera is all about its retro-cool looks and size. The camera measures a diminutive 2.9″(w) x 1.85″(d) x 1.73″ (h). While pricing is unconfirmed, I’d expect these to hit shelves for less than $250 USD based on past pricing.
