Minolta Talker (AF-Sv) 35mm Point and Shoot Camera with Strap
This Minolta Talker (also known as the AF-Sv) is in great condition and is fully functional. It comes with its original strap.
The film compartment, battery compartment, and viewfinder are clean and free of dust and damage. The lens is clean and clear with no scratches, haze, coating separation, and fungus. All levers, dials, and switches actuate as they should.
The Talker is the first (and still unique) autofocus point and shoot camera to include an optional helping hand in the form of a voice that reminds the shooter to load film, instructs when there's too little light, and more. This voice memo can be turned off if desired.
The lens is a 35mm F/2.8, capable of taking excellent quality photos due to Minolta's wonderful optical coatings and an advanced lens formula. It uses a very accurate CdS cell for automatic exposure, resulting in perfect photos every time the shutter is pressed. Simply point and shoot.
The relatively fast maximum aperture of F/2.8 combines with a quick highest speed film setting of ISO 1000 to allow low-light and available light shooting. Additionally, the built in user-selectable flash helps illuminate things in even the darkest situations.
The autofocus system is quick and accurate, allowing the user to focus on composition, framing, and having fun, while letting the camera do the job of calculating exposure and setting focus.
It will be carefully packaged and shipped immediately.
