Different type of Minox 8x11 film has different thickness, the thinner the film, more exxposures can be packed in one cassette. The following is a table for maximum capacity of Minox (or Acmel ) plastic cassette, with 10mm spool.

- Don't pack Minox cassette to maximum capacity, unless you can attach film lead to the spool very tight; otherwise, uneven tape may add to the diameter of spool, you may not get the maximum, and jam the camera. It is wise to leave some leeway.
- Remember frames beyond 50 for Minox A/B , and frames beyond 36 for Minox C/LX/TLX/CLX/EC will have wider than normal spacing.
- Thin film may have little frame spacing at the beginning.
- Don't use too thick film in Minox cassette.
