MINOX ECX in 1998. The MINAR 15 mm f/5.6 lens ensures maximum optical performance of the MINOX ECX. The focal length of the 8 x 11 MINOX format provides a depth of field range from 1 m to infinity making manual focusing absolutely superfluous. Thanks to a new mounting technique and the further developed multi-coating of all glass and air surfaces of the optical system, this unique lens reaches a resolution of more than 200 line pairs per millimeter, surpassing all series-manufactured lenses for amateur photographers.
The new film loading contact signals there is a film in the camera via a LED display in the viewfinder. The fully automatic aperture priority mode of the MINOX ECX provides a speed control of the leaf shutter of between 1/500 and 8 seconds.
Here, the Minox ECX set boxed, together with a classic Minox binocular attachment.
