Minolta Dynax 3 with 28-100mm f:3.5-5.6 zoom lens attached.
The Minolta Dynax 3 is a SLR film camera that takes 35mm film, and at the time was one of the smallest 35mm autofocus system camera bodies ever made.
Exposure is always fully automatic. The user has choice between normal program mode "P" and five programs by using the program button (with portrait symbol): Portrait, landscape, macro, sports and night-portrait. There's choice between 5 flash modes by flash mode button, for use of either internal or external flash with or w/o anti-red-eye extra-flash either permanently, automatically or never. The camera is not compatible with the system flashes of earlier Minolta autofocus SLRs. It indicates automatic use of flash by a red LED in the finder.
The user can choose between single-shot, timer-controlled shot or multi-shot mode by means of the timer button. Further controls are the film rewind finger-nail-button, the spot AF button and the shutter release button. Of course it has the typical AF camera feature to focus automatically when the shutter release button is pressed down halfway until a green LED in the prism viewfinder signals "ready for shot". The AF setting remains as long as the shutter release button is kept pressed. The camera has a nice LCD on top which displays flash mode, shooting/timer mode, image number and battery freshness, and it indicates the actual chosen program.
~Perfect for a beginner through to professionals!
