Minolta Zoom 70 Date 35mm camera (serial 40216783)

Shipping calculated at checkout.

The Minolta Zoom 70 Date is a point-and-shot 35mm camera from the 1990s with a better-than-typical zoom lens (thanks in part to its inclusion of an a aspherical lens element). The camera's serial number is 40216783.

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. In addition, we verified the camera's film plane focus accuracy. The camera is in very good aesthetic condition (see photos) with some minor wear on the body.
