Traduction de Sylvain Halgand

60's Minolta (called today Compact) have all an air of family which gives confidence. It is true for the series of Al, Hi-matic or Minoltina.

This one is the AL-F. From 1968, this 35 mm is equipped with a rangefinder and a CdS cell whose window is hardly visible in the higher part of the Rokkor 2,7/38 lens. It is about a speed priority. The aperture obtained (2,7 to 22) is indicated by a needle in the finder.
According to the Natkin catalog of 1970, it was worth 626 francs.
