Minolta Freedom 150 35mm camera

Shipping calculated at checkout.

Note: we had to remove the built-in lens cover on this camera that normally protects the lens when it's turned off. This is no way affects the cameras functionality or image quality but it does make the lens slightly more susceptible to damage so we recommend keeping it in the included case rather than throwing it loose in a purse or bag. 

The Minolta Freedom Zoom 150 (aka Riva Zoom 150) is a very compact but high quality point-and-shoot 35mm film camera with an unusually wide zoom range for its size (37.5-150mm). The lens is a sophisticated design, made up of six elements in six groups and aspherical glass to minimize aberrations.  

The camera requires a CR123 lithium battery (optional).

Options
If you opt for '+ battery' you'll get a new CR123A lithium battery; if you choose '+ battery & film' you'll also get a 24-exposure roll of Fujicolor 200 film.

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 good aesthetic condition (see photos) with some minor wear on the body. A case is included. As mentioned above, the built-in lens cover was removed.
