It took us a solid nine minutes of gawking at Minox's gilded DCC 5.1 in order to push through and locate the PX3D that premiered here at Photokina, but sadly, little was available other than the opportunity to snag a few glamor shots. The general idea is that this cutesy pocket camera will one day...

The doors of Photokina open in a matter of hours, and we'll most definitely be venturing over to Minox's booth in order to have a look at the PX3D. According to the barebones teaser release, this here concept camera will be able to capture 3D images that are viewable sans glasses. It should be note...

There's certainly no shortage of portable night vision gear available for those that often find themselves out and about at night, but there's few quite as pocketable as Minox's new NV mini II scope, which (as you can see) is almost small enough to fit on your key ring. You'll still get 2x magnific...

Minox, we knew you wouldn't let us down. We've seen a few bland cameras released by you over the years, but it warms our hearts to see you haven't forgotten why we love you. This latest line of miniature cameras comes in three flavors: yuck, meh, and totally badass. The DC 1033 looks like every oth...

Uh, this is a Minox? It's not that we can't read labels, but considering the outfit's yawn-inducing offerings of late, we're a little stunned to see something so irresistible come out of its doors. The June-bound Rolleiflex AF 5.0 is a "fully functioning, high precision replica of the world famous...

If anything, Minox does a decent job of aping its big name counterparts in looks and feature set -- if only it wasn't on average a couple years late to the party. The Minox DC-8011 seems to be a perfectly passable budget compact, with an 8 megapixel CCD, 2.7-inch LCD and electric image stabilizatio...

Let's not get carried away here, Minox. We can understand the slim, 18.5mm-thick form factor, and the 7.2 megapixel sensor and 3x zoom seem certainly par for the course, but a 3-inch LCD? It's almost like you guys are trying to build a competitive camera here. Electronic image stabilization and fac...

Next time you're "under the sea" and want to try and snap some photos of Flounder, Scuttle or Sebastian, you'll be all set thanks to Minox and its DC 6033 WP watertight camera (pictured above). The 6 megapixel, waterproof (to ten meters) camera features a MINOCTAR fixed lens, SD card support, and 1...

While it's not like Minox has exactly cracked the upper echelon of camera brands, the German company has been pumping out solid shooters for a while now (and some, well, not-so-solid). The DC1022, announced today, is based on the well-received DC8122, and retains most of the same basic specs while...

The inevitable bar-raising of low end tech now sees even crapcams rocking semi-advanced features spendier users have enjoyed for, well, nigh on years. Minox's new DC-7011 has a 2.5-inch LCD, 3x optical zoom, and 7 megapixel sensor, USB 2.0, PictBridge support, even a top-mounted mode wheel -- yet s...

Somewhere, we imagine that there has to be a warehouse (or at least a small storeroom) full of gilded inventory, guarded by a very sad man wondering where his business model went wrong. Still, that hasn't stopped low-end Chinese equipment outfitter Minox, which is hoping that its new DC1011 24 carat...

Some things just never change, and Minox apparently sees no need to update the retro styling on its wee DCC Leica M3 that has been consistent for several years now. The latest edition of this Digital Camera Classic sees a good bit of internal refreshing, however, and packs a 3.2 megapixel CMOS senso...
