The Minolta 110 Zoom Date is a tiny and elegant 35mm point-and-shoot from the early-2000s. This model was famously used by the late Chinese photographer/poet Ren Dang (任航).

The 110 Zoom Date (called the Riva Zoom 110 in some countries) features a 38-110mm zoom lens with aspherical elements. It offers the following shooting modes: fully automatic; fill flash (good for harsh sunlight and backlit subjects); flash cancel; night portrait (flash + slow shutter speed); and landscape. This camera also offers an unusually future-proof date imprinting mode (it goes all the way up to 2099!) if you like to add date stamps to your photos.

This camera requires a CR123 battery (available as an option). 

Condition notes
The camera's functions were tested a battery 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 and autoexposure accuracy. The camera is in excellent cosmetic condition (see photos). The included case in overall good condition but the leatherette piping is crumbling (a common cosmetic issue with Minolta cases of this era).

Example photos
Here are some pictures taken by other people using the Minolta 110 Zoom/Riva 110 Zoom: (The work of Ren Dang is also a good reference). 

We weren't able to locate the manual for the 110 Zoom Date but this is the manual for the similar Freedom Zoom 115 which uses the same shooting modes:
