I have purchased this 110 camera while traveling in the south of France, at some point in 1992. My first Minolta camera, and also my first 110 camera format, it saw a lot of traveling and action for a couple of years, until I got bit by the Minox bug, and slowed down using 110.
A very good performer (if you realize the 13×17 film frame is not really that large), and have used it with either Agfa or Fuji 110 films. It has a built-in electronic flash and a three-element 1:5.6/26mm Rokkor lens with switchable focus settings 1.5m, 3m and 10m. No metering, so this is a fixed exposure camera, apparently you’re stuck with 5.6 and 1/200s. But no worries, because it has 3 focus zones.
Main controls are on the top plate, such as the shutter release button, focus/distance slide and aperture, indicated by symbols. The film advance and shutter arming are on the bottom plate. The lens cover and shutter release lock control are situated onto the front, easy to reach and operate.
I like that, when the flash is activated, it springs from the body a tad, putting even more distance between the lens and the flash light, and this in turn reduces the red-eye effect. There is a flash-ready lamp which is easily seen. It’s powered by a single AA battery. The viewfinder is a simple reverse Galilean one. On the camera bottom is a flash range table.
This model has two interesting features, and at the time of its release, not many cameras had these: an audible sound warning for low light situations and the focus distance scale is lit up when the flash is activated.
