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.

On the first models the slot for the flash bulb was parallel to the reflector. After a year it was changed to a perpendicular position which better used the parabolic reflector. A black version was introduced for the black Minox A and B cameras.
