AL (white) - Minox 35mm

introduction | accessories | Minox EL | Minox PL | Minox ML | Minox AF | Minox CD | Minox DC | Compared

The white version of the AL is painted white. There never was a white dye plastic used in either the AL or EC cameras. And Minox state that no white EC cameras were ever in production. The white of the AL does become off white with age and handling by some users (another reason not to smoke).

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.

Features include:-

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.

The camera has also been seen with a white canvas and leather pouch case.
