Minox first sold a flash unit in 1961. B-C flashgun matches the shape and style of the camera. It fits directly to the flash nipple the unit requires no synchronization cable. The small fan reflector slides out of the back of the unit and when retracted the used bulb is ejected.

From the beginning there were three versions of the B-C flash gun. A short shoe version for the Minox A, a long shoe with cut out for the Minox B's meter and a cold shoe version, Model U (universal) with synchronization cable to work with any camera with an accessory shoe.

The original flash gun has the slot parallel to the reflector. The later version has the slot perpendicular to the reflector.
