Regular price $55.00

Shipping calculated at checkout.

The Minolta Riva Zoom 70W is a quality point-and-shoot 35mm camera from the 90s with a very handy zoom range from 28-70mm. The camera is well appointed with features (including its nice lens with two aspeherical elements) and has a very nice industrial design (the lens cover is beautiful). 

The camera requires a CR123A lithium battery (optional).

Condition notes
The camera's functions were tested with batteries and a roll of film (the film was not developed). All modes are working correctly. The camera is in very good aesthetic condition (see photos) with some minor wear on the body. The original case is included. We confirmed the film plane focus accuracy using an autocollimator.
