Minox

Meet the world’s smallest camera, Minox invented by Walter Zapp in 1936. His aim was to design a camera that was small enough to fit in the palm of a hand and yet was capable of taking high-quality spontaneous photographs. The camera was actually intended for regular photography but it soon became the world’s most popular spy camera. The espionage use of the Minox has been portrayed in Hollywood movies such as James Bond.
