      Konica Minolta Photo Imaging, Inc. ceased the camera business on March 31, 2006
Specifications
  1. Type: Electronically governed 35mm single-lens reflex AE camera
  2. Exposure-control modes: Fully programmed ("P"), aperture-priority automatic ("A"), and metered manual ("M")
  3. Lens mount: Minolta SLR bayonet of integrally lubricated stainless steel (54 rotating angle); coupling for full-aperture metering, finder display input, and automatic diaphragm control, providing programmed or aperture-priority auto operation with Minolta MD lenses, aperture-priority auto operation with MC and other Minolta SLR interchangeable lenses/accessories; spring-return button for depth-of-field preview or stop-down meter readings with other than MD or MC lenses (standard lenses: MD 50mm f/1.2, f/1.4, f/1.7)
  4. Shutter: Horizontal-traverse focal-plane type; electronically controlled stepless speeds 1/1000 to 4 sec. set automatically with endlessly rotatable selector dial locked at "P" or "A" setting or fixed speeds 1 to 1/1000 sec. or "B" (bulb) set manually at detented dial indications; electromagnetic shutter release locks when voltage too low for proper operation
  5. Metering: TT L center-weighted averaging type, by silicon photocell mounted at rear of pentaprism for available light, measured full aperture for normal finder display, then at taking aperture for programmed/automatic-exposure setting/determination or stop-down display; by another SPC mounted with optic in side of mirror compartment for TTL off-film Direct Autoflash Metering at taking aperture during exposure to control burst duration of PX-series flash units
  6. Film-speed range: ISO 25/150 to 1600/330 set by ASA dial that locks at 1/3-EV increments
  7. Exposure-adjustment control: Up to 2 EV continuous adjustment of P, A, or M exposure by dial that locks at zero position and each 1/2-EV setting
  8. Mirror: Triple-coated oversize instant-return slide-up type
  9. Flash Sync and Control: Hot shoe and PC terminal for X sync; camera-control contact on hot shoe for flash ready signaling and automatic setting of shutter at 1/60 sec. (except when mode/shutter-speed selector set for sync at "B") with PX and X flash units; other electronic units synchronize at 1/60 sec. and slower manual speeds or "B" setting; Class MF, M, and FP flashbulbs, at 1/15 sec. or slower settings; second contact on hot shoe for burst control by Direct Autoflash Metering with PX units
  10. Film Advance: Manual: by lever with single 130 stroke after 30 unengaged movement; motorized: through built-in coupler key with accessory Motor Drive I or Auto Winder G; release button for rewind on camera bottom; advancing-type frame counter; Safe Load Signal indicates film loading and advancing condition Power: Two 1.5v alkaline-manganese (LR44: Eveready A-76 or equiv.), two 1.55v silver-oxide (SR44: Eveready S-76, EPX-76, or equiv.), or one 3v lithium (CR-1/3N) cell(s) contained in camera base power both programmed/auto exposure control and manual operation; three-position main switch with indication for off, on, or on with audible piezoelectric slow-speed warning and self-timer operating indication; battery check by touching or slightly pressing operating button (LEDs do not light when cells approach exhaustion); shutter will not release when voltage too low for proper operation
  11. Self-timer: Electronic for 10-sec. delay, with operation indicated by camera-front LED that blinks at 2Hz for 8 sec., then 8Hz for 1 sec., then remains on until shutter releases, plus simultaneous audible indication when main switch in appropriate position; engaged by switch on body, cycle started by pushing operating button, cancelable anytime before release
  12. Others: Audible 4Hz piezoelectric warning when finder speed indication is 1/30 sec. or slower whenever finger contacts "touch switch" normally or presses operating button slightly with main switch appropriately set; integral front hand grip; detachable back with integral hand grip, memo holder, and ISO (DIN-ASA) table; positive 4-slot take-up spool; remote shutter-release socket
  13. Size and weight: 51.5 x 89 x 137mm (2 x 3-1/2 x 5-3/8 in.), 505g (17-13/16 oz.) without lens and/or power cells
