|As described, they are light and compact. Just need a bit of fiddling to get used to the 3 adjustment "rings" in the centre and then great to use!!|

|This is my first pair of good binoculars. So far I am very pleased. I did a lot of research before selecting Pentax. Best bang for the buck. Unfortunately a few days after receiving and using the product at home for bird-watching, the adjustment knob got stuck.|

|Pentax UCF XII is a compact binocular made for beginners. These binoculars are light weight and compact with no design flaws other than the strap - for some reason.|

|I bought mine used about 20 years ago but it was mint. Simple to use, compact, reliable and extremely accurate. My meter was modified by Zone VI studios, so it cost me a little more than the standard meter. I wanted to pay the extra.|

This detailed instruction manual will help you to make the most of your Minox 35 PL. The most important text sections are printed in bold type. References to parts, controls or camera signals are followed by a numeral in brackets; This is the number of that part in the annotated illustrations on pages 4 and 5. Most handling steps work without a film in the camera. So get familiar with your camera by trying it out before actually taking pictures. Many operations of the Minox 35 PL are controlled electronically. The camera therefore only works with a battery.
Despite its small dimensions the Minox 35 PL is a full-frame 24 x 36 mm miniature camera and takes any standard 35 mm (No. 135) cartridge.

Certain functions of the Minox 35 PL. such as the shutter and automatic exposure settings, are controlled electronically. The camera therefore only works with a battery. It requires a 5.6 volt mercury oxide battery, for instance: Duracell PX 27 Varta V 27 PX or equivalents.
Open the front cover (16). Unscrew the battery compartment cover (11) anticlockwise, with a coin if necessary. Insert the battery so that the + end faces the inside of the compartment cover, also marked with a + sign.
Replace the cover and screw tight again. A click on pressing the release does not necessarily indicate correct operation of the electronic shutter. So check the battery.
Open the front cover (16), fully advance the film transport lever (19) - see page 12 - and check as follows: Fully depress the small rectangular battery check button (3) between the hot shoe and the green release button. If the left-hand green LED (7) in front of the hot shoe lights up, the battery is OK. If the green LED (7) fails to light the battery is exhausted or was inserted the wrong way around. If the green LED (7) goes dim within 2-3 seconds, the battery is nearly
exhausted - so replace it as soon as possible. The battery check does not indicate
how much longer the battery will last. To be on the safe side, replace the bat-
tery once a year by a new one, even if the battery check is still positive. Apparent early failure of the battery may in fact be due to a poor contact. Remove the battery from the camera, firmly rub down both contact faces with a rough cloth and replace.
Never keep spent or too old batteries in the camera. Also remove the battery if you do not expect to use the
camera for some time.
Note: The battery used here contains mercury compounds that could pose a health risk. So never throw used batteries on a fire; also keep them out of the reach of small children. Photo dealers usually accept spent batteries for disposal.
To prepare the Minox 35 PL for shooting, fully pull down the front cover (16). After shooting push the

In certain light conditions a red signal appears in the finder below the bright frame at the right. This is the
slow-speed warning signal (page 16).
The closed cover also covers the viewfinder, blocks the release and
switches off all electric circuits.
The closed front cover (16) also blocks the finder view. So when you see nothing through the finder you must open the cover.

to the appropriate ASA (or DIN) rating of the film. The dial engages at every speed
setting. The unmarked dots between
the arrowheads Indicate intermediate speeds, for instance 64 and 80 ASA between 50 and 100 ASA.
ASA speed figures are marked In red, DIN figures in green. If you have set too high a film speed, your pictures will be underexposed; too low a speed setting yields overexposed shots. Program automation For all shots without flash set the
white arrowhead on the lens mount
(12) to A (automatic control). At this A setting the camera automatically selects a correct aperture and shutter speed combination for the subject brightness and film speed. The f-stops, for instance 2.8 - 4 5.6 etc. on the aperture ring (12) are only used for flash shots (page 18). If you accidentally set the ring to an aperture figure instead of to A, daylight and other shots without flash e.g. bright interiors lit by artificial light - may be wrongly exposed.
The electronic program of the Minox 35 PL yields aperture/speed combinations from f/16 to f/2.8 and
from 1/500 to 4 seconds at 100 ASA (up
to 15 seconds at 25 ASA or up to 1 second at 400 ASA).

1/30 second, a red flashing signal
The slow-speed warning uses battery power. So close the front cover when you put away your Minox 35 PL.

warns of likely camera shake with
hand-held shots. The red signal flashes clearly on top of the camera (6) and also in the
finder (at the bottom right). There it appears weaker to avoid glare in the
The automatic control of the Minox 35 PL can also generate exposures much longer than 1/30 second. The red flashing signal is thus not an underexposure warning but only a recommendation to use a flash unit (pages 27 to 29) when photographing moving subjects (e.g. people) indoors. Or - for static subjects - mount the camera on a tripod (page 32).
Apart from lightening shadows in backlit subjects, use the backlight switch also for outdoor views where predominant snow or a bright sky area could cause the meter to set insufficient exposure.
The hot shoe of the Minox 35 PL takes any electronic flash unit with a centre contact in the foot - as well as the Minox TC 35 and FC 35 computer flash units which are specially matched to the Minox 35. Push the black blanking plate out of the hot shoe towards the rear. Fully push the foot of the flash unit into the shoe. This disengages the automatic exposure control of the Minox 35 PL and sets a fixed shutter speed of 1/90 second. Do not take flash shots with the aperture ring (12) set to A (automatic). For flash shots select one of the marked apertures between f/2.8 and f/16 (including intermediate values)
rarely) may automatically trigger the next flash after recycling. (This is not a fault but a feature of the electronic circuit.)
- check the instructions of the flash used. With some electronic flash units (not with the special Minox flashes) you must operate the film transport of the 35 PL immediately after every flash shot. For unless the shutter is tensioned, such flash units either fail to give a ready signal for the next flash or (more
Push down the small sliding switch (18) at the right of the finder eyepiece to uncover a red window with T (timer) in white. This delays the shutter release by about 12 seconds after you have pressed the green release button (or released with a cable release).
A red flashing LED on the camera front (9) signals that the selftimer is running but the exposure has not yet started. The flashing rate doubles after 4 seconds and again after 8 seconds of the delay period.
Estimate the approximate distance to the main subject and set this
on the distance scale (13). In view of the considerable depth of field of the 35 mm lens a really accurate setting
is only necessary at near distances of around 3 to 4 ft or 0.9 to 1 m. For a useful snapshot zone set the scale to the green dot between 10
and 20 ft or between 3 and 5 m; in
good light this then covers everything from about 6 to 60 ft or 2 to 20m.

camera top rotates - watch the light dot. The frame counter (1) is now at 0. Set the film speed on the scale in the camera base (page 13). During shooting you can still check that the film is advancing correctly: Whenever you work the film transport lever, the rewind crank with the light dot must rotate, too.
However the frame counter automatically resets itself during loading at the latest when you have pushed the film end into the take-up spool and advanced the film and released the shutter before closing the back (see page 22). Periodically clean the front lens element, the outer finder window surfaces and the curved window in front of the CdS cell. Remove any dust with a soft brush, air blower or special lens cleaning tissue - these are obtainable from photo dealers. Do not use lens cleaning fluids. Immediately remove fingerprints from the front lens; such marks greatly reduce definition. When changing film, check that the back of the lens and the camera interior are also clean and dust-free.
After the last exposure (No. 36, 24, 20 or 12 on the frame counter, depending on the film length) you must rewind the film into its cartridge: Unfold the rewind crank end with the light dot (8, in the camera top at the left), press the rewind release button (21, in the recess in the camera base at the right) and let go. Rewind the film by turning the rewind crank clockwise.
The film is fully rewound when the crank starts turning more freely. After rewinding remove the camera back and withdraw the cartridge from the camera. If the frame counter (1) does not return to its start position on removing the back, release the shutter once.
The matched Minox FC 35 computer flash The Minox FC 35 electronic flash is the smaller of the two computer flashes designed for the Minox 35
cameras. It is 3 x 5.5 x 7.5 cm (1.2 x
2.2 x 3 in.) large and weighs 130 g (4.6
oz). The metric guide No. for 100 ASA is
18 (59 in feet). You have two aperture options with two working ranges of the computer control: At the "green" setting the flash covers subjects up to 4.5 m or 15 ft. At the red setting the limit is 3.2 m (10 ft) but the depth of field is greater,
for at any given film speed you use one stop smaller than with the green setting. If you switch off the automatic control of the PC 35 you can cover greater
distances with high-speed films, e.g.
up to 13 m or 40 ft with 400 ASA.
Recycling time: Approx. 10 seconds. Batteries: 2 size AAA alkaline
manganese cells. Capacity approx. 60 to 80 flashes per battery set. (All data based on DIN 19011 specifications.)
The matched Minox TC 35 computer flash
The TC 35 is the more powerful of
the two Minox 35 flash units and offers additional features. The guide No. (in accordance with DIN 19011) is 26 (m) or 95 (ft) at 100 ASA. Three aperture options with ranges up to 9, 6.5 and 3.25 m (30, 21 and 10 ft). LEDs on a scale show available ranges and working apertures; in manual mode (range with 400 ASA up to about 18 m or 60 ft) this serves as an aperture calculator. In computer (automatic flash duration control) mode, and especially at
near to medium distances, the thyristor series circuit provides fast recycling (1 to 10 seconds) and a high
check control shows by a green or red signal whether the flash power is sufficient for the subject in question.
