The MINOLTA AF-DL or MINOLTA FREEDOM DL had been one of the early easy-to-use all-automatic compact cameras for 35mm film. The on/off-switch opens and shuts the 2-part lens cover. A red button allows switching the lens from wide-angle focus to standard focus and vice versa. This is the meaning of "DL": dual lens . The camera has automatic film transport, auto-focus with focus hold option (by pushing the shutter release button halfways), and automatic activation of the builtin flash. It may have been produced in Malaysia.

  • Lens: 1:3,5/35mm, switchable to 1:5,6/50mm
  • Autofocus: infrared
  • Films: 35mm films of 100 ASA or 400 ASA film speed
  • Exposure: subject weighted metering, programmed automatic exposure
  • Viewfinder: magnification changes when lens is switched
  • weight: 275 g without the 4 AAA-batteries
  • dimensions 132 x 69,5 x 51 mm

The camera had a yellow coloured "brother" with the same technical data, the MINOLTA WEATHERMATIC 35 DL underwater camera.
