Minolta Disc 5 and 7 were the first Minolta cameras has to use the film disc launched by Kodak in 1982. They are both with automatic exposure by Silicium cell, with automatic flash, advances automatic film and powered by a long life lithium battery. They are provided with a lens 2,8/12,5 mm, consisted of 4 elements in 4 groups. Optical glass is treated. The focusing is fixed 1,2 meter to ad infinitum, with a position of closer focusing (from 0,4 to 1,2 m). The finder is of the type with luminous framework with correction of parallax and indications of the symbols of focusing.

About Disc 7: Beautiful robust case of aspect, with a black back and a champagne frontage . On the top, a lever allows the opening towards the back of the shutter of loading of the disc. There remain the 1/3 right which does not open (probably the housing of the pile which remains inaccessible).

From face, one distinguishes on the left a black part which is not other than a swivelling device making it possible to stabilize the camera on a plane surface. This part also allows hangs it dragonne and the fixing of the camera on a foot.

The flash is laid out in top on the left, it has a time of recycling of 1 second and lighted 0,4m to 5,5 Mr. Under the finder, a cursor makes it possible to move the shutter of double protection lens and finder.
Below the lens, a lever allows the selection of the portrait modes or landscape.
In the center, it is a mirror intended for the self-portrait (or to powder the nose). On its left the button of starting is located
The release is on the left lower part.
Disc 7 has in addition to Disc 5 a 10 second old retarder.

A little later will launch the luxury versions (I know, that made smile) under the name of Courrèges.
