    It's not worth the money... read the reviews on amazon.com

    Seriously, a search would have thrown up results.

    At today's exchange rates, should be less than SGD300 for the cam alone and that's including a generous USD50 for shipping (Amazon or Adorama).

    actually the amazon and adorama points towards the older minox m3 plus, which is also a 5mp toy camera but with only 1.5 inch display. The newer Minox dcc 5.1 seems to have a 2 inch optical viewer on the discript ( correct me if i am wrong, until a while ago i know nuts about these toy cameras ). as to whether the newer dcc 5.1 is worth the premium (or if the minox is even worth buying as a toy camera) u have to ask urself.

    Ahhh ... so there were three versions instead of two?

    The original 3mp 3.0, the 'boosted' to 5mp 3.0, and the 5mp 5.1?

    I would've gotten it, if it wasn't for the fact that it's made of plastic... I've heard of the lever breaking off after a while...

    i prefer the 1st 3mp version (Leica M3)because the attention to details is amazing on that first version ....... you dont buy these cameras because of picture quality
    shaddap and just shoot .... up close

    Have to admit the TLR replica is charming - especially the WLF and finger cank on the side!
