The Minox 35AL follows on from the Minox 35PL in 1987. It is a simplified model with pictographs for sun, partial cloud and cloud to set the aperture. It is fixed focus from 1.2m (5ft) to infinity with a 35mm f/4 Color-Minar lens. In some respects it is a converted GT and not a descendant of the PL.
The back light key is again the same place as with the EL
A green LED is for the battery test and a red LED for under and over exposure warning.
Designed to extend the market for the Minox 35mm range the camera did not match the success of the PL or GT. The white version made a change from the all black cameras and was matched with a white FA35 electronic flash. The white AL is a thin coating over the black AL Makrolon and this is apparent if the camera is scratched or the finish worn thin.
The black AL has a white release button but the white AL has a red button. The battery cover on both is black.
The ISO film setting is on the front of the lens and so the base of the camera has no dial or markings.
