Purchased this neat little Leica Mini-II in late 1994 because I wanted to try out auto-focus.
I took a roll when I got it and the pictures came out fine. The camera wasn't used for a while because I was doing some 35mm SLR magazine articles so I removed to battery and boxed it up.
Months later I pulled it out, installed the battery and it was dead as a doornail. Picked up a new battery and still nothing. Back in the box it went and has been sitting in a hutch over my computer since then.
Today I got it out, started to install the battery and noticed the + sign pointed up while I was prepared to drop it in the other way. I then popped the battery in, flipped the power on and the little Leica started humming away. It works fine. Pilot error strikes again.
It has two straps, a long one for the neck and a shorter wrist strap.
