The Minox 35 GT, a 35mm miniature camera, was made with a reinforced fiber glass/makrolon body. Released by 1981, after the Minox 35 EL (1975) and the Minox 35 GL (1979).
A small flash, the FC 35, was designed to fit the camera body.
The PX27 mercury batery is not available anymore in most countries. The PX27A is the alkaline alternative, if you can find it close to you. Adapters are being sold online to use four alkaline LR44 or two lithium CR-1/3N batteries. With the same dimensions of the PX27 mercury battery, the alkaline PX27A fits directly on Minox 35 cameras, without the need of adapter.
The PX27A, two CR-1/3N or four LR44 are all 6v alternatives to the 5.6v PX27. This small voltage difference seem to work fine, as it is used by many without known issues.
