Shipping calculated at checkout.

The Minolta Riva Zoom 70 Date is a basic 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 36828080. If you would like to use the camera's date imprinting feature, please message us and we will install a coin cell battery for this purpose at no extra charge.

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 very good aesthetic condition (see photos) with some minor wear on the body. The original case is included.
