I got this photography bug since the early 80’s, at the photo lab in my high school in Bacau. The only camera I had at that time was a beaten down Smena 8. I had my encounters with Nikons and the like, then medium format and 16 mm caught my fancy. I have also lived through the Olympus-mania during the early 90’s.
The Minox came much later in my life, around 1995. It was quite an encounter, for I never looked back !
This is the new Minoxit website, as the old one had to go. I reload 8×11 cassettes, process 8×11 and 16mm film negatives, and I scan these formats. I am also an active member of subminiature photography groups.
I am no expert, and I am learning every day. I am also a vintage fountain pen collector and repairer, and I run a small repair shop for these wonderful objects (www.stilourideieri.ro).
Therefore, just see my blog as a hobby of an amateur photographer, with its minuses and pluses, all done in good heart and with a lot of friendship.
Hope you will have a good time in here, welcome !
