      Comments about DCC 14.0 Digital Camera (Black):

      Quite often the pictures turned greeny. I contacted Minox Germany may times and got replacement 3 times. But all of them had the same phenomenon. The DCC 5.1 had no such trouble. DCC 14.0 might have some defects in its software. Anyway, I never recommend this camera to anyone.

          Comments about DCC 14.0 Digital Camera (Black):

          I love photography as a whole and own a number of cameras, from a LeicaM9 to a Olympus OM-D. I still have most of my old film cameras including a Minox GT-E. I purchased the DCC 14.0 to see what I could get out of it. I love landscape photography and own a large formal printer, HP Z3100 for printing. I have a particular scene that I photograph to test various cameras and lens combinations. I then print out 24 x 18 prints for comparison, sharpness, color, resolution etc. I did not expect to get this size print from the Minox but have produced a 19x 13 print that shows excellent resolution, color and sharpness, shot at f2.8 and 1/1500s. What a great little camera. My one grouse is the tripod socket thread. This must be the only camera in the world with a non standard 1/4 inch thread, probably 6mm metric which requires a special adaptor. This is real stupid, what were Minox thinking.

          Comments about DCC 14.0 Digital Camera (Black):

          Cute little toy. Not much good for anything other than to be a conversation piece. For you to get a good image you must be in very bright light such as sun light. IT is beautiful and fun and that is why I purchased it. It is a nice addition to my camera collection. It is not a serious contender for a camera. But I like it none the less.

            I had seen this camera around for a while and thought it might be a good daytime walk around shooter. When I first opened the box and got it out there is a high WOW factor. It is probably as cute as any camera I have ever seen. Un fortunately it takes only fair pictures. If it took pictures on the same level as it is cute the whole world be buying this camera.
