Welcome to Marty's MinoxDoc.com!

I've created this site to share my admiration, enthusiasm and overall knowledge of the Minox subminiature camera line.  Over the past several years, I have been collecting, trading, using and repairing vintage Minox subminis, but only now have I committed the time to create a site which attempts to share this accumulated knowledge.  I hope you enjoy it and learn something from it. 

Questions?  Comments? Got something to sell or looking to buy something?  Email me: info@minoxdoc.com

NEWS FLASH - This is not an April Fools joke, I am serious about this.  On April 1, 2005, Minox has announced it has separated from Leica and an independent Minox USA has been formed.  Its corporate headquarters are in NEW HAMPSHIRE of all places!  I have been in email contact with Mr. Arnd Abraham who has come over from Germany to help establish the new venture and their address is in a small town called Meriden, New Hampshire which is about 2 hours to the northwest of my home!  Another chapter in Minox history is being written, hopefully not the last.  I wish them well in their venture and hope to meet up with the Minox representatives in the near future to get some "inside" information.

Now, feel free to check out the rest of the site by following these links:
