Point of Appeal

This Minolta film SLR camera and lens was released in 1959. This camera was released 64 years ago. The exterior is so beautiful that it is hard to believe that this camera is more than half a century old.
The silver of the body material can be kept clean.

It is the type that does not have an exposure meter, so I hope you can use a commercially available one.

The lens is in the condition described, but I think you will enjoy shooting it.

We hope you’ll enjoy this vintage camera and all the wonderful vintage camera life it has to offer!
