The Minolta ER was Minolta's first step towards their SLR cameras' exposure automation. It was introduced in 1963. It offered a shutter preferred automatic exposure mode in which aperture was controlled by the built in selenium exposure meter. It was Minolta's only SLR for 35mm film with unchangeable lens. So it had a lens like many of Minolta's old rangefinder cameras, a 1:2,8/45mm Rokkor. Two accessory screw-on lenses were available:

  • W Rokkor 35mm 1:5.6
  • T Rokkor 85mm 1:5.6


  • Lens: Rokkor TD 45mm f2.8 (4 elements in 3 groups)
  • Shutter: Seikosha SLV 1/30 to 1/500s; B, selftimer
  • Exposure: Automatic, 7 to 17 LV.
  • Film speed: 10 to 400 ASA
  • Focus: 90cm to inf.
  • Size: 92 x 140 x 77 mm
  • Weight: 880g
