At some point in the very near future I am going to have to write a proper review of the Minolta Hi-Matic AF2. It's a little point a shoot camera that Minolta made back in the 1980's and I've been getting a lot of mileage lately out of one that I tend to bring along to photo sessions as a camera to just take some quick shots with when I'm trying to get my creativity jumping.
Just a little quick rundown of the camera's specs. The Hi-Matic AF2 has a 38mm fixed focal length lens with an f/2.8 maximum aperture. It's a fairly sharp lens and the autofocus and auto exposure seem to be pretty accurate. Strangely, it has a manual wind similar to a typical manual SLR, which is a "feature" I love. It was more common at this point in time for camera's to have motor drive which I find obnoxious, at least in cameras at a lower price point, as the noise is pretty irritating.
One reviewer dubbed the Hi-Matic AF2 as a camera Between the Ages which I think is a pretty accurate statement.
