After rousing a great deal of interest among collectors and admirers of mechanical precision with the two classic cameras Leica IIIf and Leica M3, MINOX is presented another legendary product from this series: the Classic Camera Leica If. Third of the Minox OEM Classic Collection camera, a faithful 1:3 reproduction of a Leica 1If Nr. IM0209 has a MINOCTAR f/5.6 15mm (3 Element in 3 Groups) lens with focal range of 1.2m to . The shutter speed is fixed at a fast 1/250th.

This classic camera from Leica was first presented in 1951 and its production continued until 1956. The Leica I f is a simplified version of the Leica II f, which does without long exposure times and has no viewfinder or rangefinder. The first edition in 1951 produced a total of 2200 cameras and between 1952 and 1956 a further 1300 were made.

The Minox Leica If uses the legendary MINOX miniature 8 x 11 mm film, just like its predecessors. The top quality Minoctar lens 1:5.6/15 mm with three lens elements in three groups guarantees the very best imaging results. A further highlight of this miniaturized classic camera is the attachable 15 mm viewfinder. Furthermore, there is a flash unit available as an accessory item, making it possible to capture excellent shots even in unfavourable light.

Matching accessories perfectly complement this new product, including a hand-stitched ever-ready case, a neck strap and a lens cover.
