Minolta Hi-Matic S2 35mm camera w/ original case; flash not functional, otherwise works great

Shipping calculated at checkout.

Note: The pop-up flash is not working on this camera. All other features are working well, we film-tested the camera and it delivered sharp, well-exposed negatives. We recommend this camera for outdoor use in the daytime. 

The Minolta Hi Matic S2 the manual focus version of the better-known Hi Matic AF-2. Both cameras share the same fast and sharp 38mm f2.8 lens and are excellent cameras for street/party photography. In many ways the Hi Matic S2 is a more flexible camera than its auto-focus sibling; it focuses as close as 80cm and offers both pictograms for fast focusing or distances in meters/feet for precision. 

The camera is powered by two ordinary AA batteries (not included). 

Note: It's a very easy camera to use but one function sometimes confuses new users: when you first load the film (and before you take your first photo), you need to crank the film advance lever repeatedly until it locks and the number 1 appears in frame counter window.

Condition notes
The camera (serial number 4008371) is very good cosmetic condition (see photos). Apart from the pop-up flash not working, the camera is in good functional condtion. The original case is included. This camera was tested with film and gave excellent results.
