History of the brand Minolta New window

Traduction de Manuel M

The A5 exists in various configurations of lenses and shutter. On this specimen, the Citizen shutter reaches the 1/1000.

A green and white inscription in front does not fail to announce it.

On another specimen presented on the site, the maximum speed of the shutter is the 1/500.
According to McKeown, this difference in shutter speed would make it possible to distinguish the cameras from the US market (1/500) of those of the Japanese market (1/1000).
