What if we told you Minox, the guys who made spy cameras for the CIA in the 1940s, were still designing sneaky little photo-makers?
Indeed they are, and get ready to fall in love with their latest, a Leica M3 look-alike: the Classic Mini Digital Camera.
It’s a 2″x3″ mini digital camera that hails from the days of secret spy missions, vocoders, and dudes named Boris.
Plus, make sure to scope out our newest and easiest photo-holder yet, the Snapshot Dot. Minimal in design, these hip lil’ dots let your photos shine by giving you a clean and colorful way to show them off.
p.s. You like cameras right? Right! Think you could answer these two questions for us? It’d mean the world.

Our Rare Film Gift Pack is back, rarer and filmier than ever!
In your pack, you’ll get 3 hard-to-find, imported 35mm films:
One high-speed color film, one sepia-toned monochrome, and a whole new film, the Revolog Kolor 400 film.
This rainbowlicious film came to be when a couple of photo students “hacked” their own film by carefully unraveling each roll and pre-exposing their film to colored lights (and yes, they’re totally just as cool as the kids in the movie Hackers).
It’s a dreamy roll that adds a gorgeous range of pink, green, blue, and yellow hues to every shot!
Half b-days, quarter b-days…who says you have to wait for your actual birthday to get yourself a gift?
p.s. Sometimes things get a little amazing over on the Photojojo Tumblr. Better not miss it!
