You can find out more at

I have the original Minox 35EL which doesn't appear much different: It's
got good optics and is really easy to carry about and I've taken fine
Ektachromes with it. It's aperture-priority automatic but you can gain
some degree of manual control by manipulating the film speed control.
Newer models have a permanently attached skylight filter which seems
kind of strange. I haven't used it much since buying my 35mm Summicron
for my M-camera; parallax correction is nice to have after all!
