You're viewing a Minolta HI-MATIC F 35mm compact rangefinder camera. small enough to tuck into a coat pocket, it's equipped with a  38mm f2.7 lens. It accommodates film speeds from ISO 25 to 500.

It's in excellent condition, except that the PC flash terminal has been pushed-in slightly on the upper right side of the body. It doesn't affect function at all and is not noticeable unless you're looking very closely. It stilll has its rubber PC terminal plug.  The optics, including the viewfinder, are clear and clean, with no scratches or fungus. The rangefinder looks to be right on the money.

Included is a lenscap and a Tiffin Skylight 1A filter. You can click here to find a review and much more technical information about this camera at the Photehtnography web site. I couldn't find the original batteries for this camera, but I found substitutes recommended by Photoethnography.

Minolta made about a zillion different models in the HI-MATIC series. None of them were dogs. This one is a nice little shooter that ought to be used.
