 The Minolta Hi-Matic 7SII is a very compact 35mm rangefinder introduced in 1977.  This camera features a superb 40mm f1.7 lens (6 elements in 4 groups) and quiet, accurate Copal leaf shutter with speeds from 1/8 to 1/500 (plus a bulb mode). The camera can either be used in shutter priority automatic exposure or a manual exposure mode. 

The included Minolta 20 flash (guide no 20 meter/32 feet at ISO 100) is the perfect size for this camera. It includes a case with attaches to the Hi-Matic 7SII's strap. The camera can synchronize with this flash at any shutter speed. 

The camera requires a 675 zinc-air battery (available as an option) and the flash requires two AA alkaline batteries (not included). 

Condition notes

This camera and flash were film-tested and gave sharp, correctly exposed photos. The camera is in excellent functional and cosmetic condition (see photos). The camera's half-case and the flash's case are included.
