Minox 1950s-style DCC 5.1 miniature digital camera

Minox1

We love Minox, primarily for the classic 1960s DSC spy camera. But that could be replaced in our affections by the Minox DCC 5.1.

It's a small-scale replica of a vintage 35mm rangefinder camera, offering up modern-day essentials including a five-megapixel sensor, a 2-inch LCD screen, video recording in AVI format, rechargeable lithium-ion battery and an SD card slot. Some other neat touches too, including a 50s-style chrome-plated brass lens cap and add-ons like a leather case and a teleconverter and a wide-angle converter, not to mention a super-sized flash.

Sold in a stylish wooden box, it's yours for 229 Euros from April. For an idea of scale, see the image over the page.
