It was and is one of my favorite point and shoot film cameras.
4 November 2013
Summary: I purchased this camera to replace one I used to have. In its day and even for now, it looks good. It is user friendly and not complicated to learn or use. It is solid, fairly rugged, and reliable. Other than it being bigger because it actually IS a 35mm film camera, it has just about all the features I look for, then and now. The internet and E-Bay make it possible to find such items. It was and is one of my favorite point and shoot film cameras.
Summary: this is a classic 35mm camera giving the excellent picture quality of the much more expensive slr cameras of the same era....fun to use and less bulky...fun to use even with the digital camera I own...nothing is better sometimes than the "old fashion" film pictures....
Summary: I bought this camera because of price, & 140zoom. I have a Minolta 125zoom already. Plus they take great pictures too. What I didn't like is, NOT A THING. I emailed the seller and told him how much I liked it.
Summary: I like this camera, it takes good pictures for a point and shoot. I used kodak 800 max film for some shots i had developed at a local photographic/film developing shop. The professional photographer stated" That it was nice to see that someone could take such great pictures and finally knew how to use 800 max film in a SLR TYPE CAMERA" hahahahahhaha I pointed out mine was the point in shoot in his display and he couldnt believe it!
Pros: Picture Quality, Light Meter Choice, ease of use
Cons: Film Loading, jams and rewinds if not done correctly
Summary: This camera is not even 1 star. I had bought three minoltas that only lasted for a month or two. I was not very happy with this product. It's only a waste of money. I wonder why the battery gets really hot all the time. Now, I have three busted (Minolta) cameras and I swear I will never buy this product as long as I live.
