Shipping calculated at checkout.

The Minolta Freedom AF 35 R (aka Riva AF 35C) is a very simple compact autofocus 35mm film camera with a sharp fixed 35mm f/4.5 lens. This camera includes a switch to choose between normal and red-eye reducing flash modes.

The camera requires two AA batteries (not included). 

Condition notes
The camera was tested with batteries and film installed and all functions are working correctly (the film was not developed however). There is a small amount of tarnish on the battery contacts (see photo) but it did not affect the camera in our testing. We verified the camera's film plane focus accuracy on an autocollimator. The camera is in very good cosmetic condition (see photos).
