►LENS:

Minolta Lens 35mm f/2.8

►DESCRIPTION:

An interesting camera from the 80s with an interesting feature. Back in 1984, Minolta launched a camera called the Minolta AF-S. Marketed in the United States as the “Minolta Talker,” the camera would literally speak to the photographer using it. If you are shooting on no film, the camera will tell you to “Load Film!” And if you’re trying to shoot a dark scene, the camera will warn and instruct you that it’s “Too dark!” and that you should “Use flash!” The camera also warns you when you are too close to an object and tell you to "check distance!" Watch the camera in action in this vintage commercial here!

Features wise, the camera is fairly simple to operate with just the essential functions you need to shoot. It has built-in flash that is manually operated with a on/off slide button at the back of the camera- be sure to use a high voltage and fresh battery with it or the camera will not operate properly or quickly, the quality of your battery will determine how fast the flash will be charged up and be ready for use. There is a self-timer switch next to the lens called "ST", and pretty much that's it for features! The lens is also quite nice on this point and shoot, at 35mm f2.8.

►CONDITION:
