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

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
