The Weathermatic 35DL issued by Minolta in 1987 is basically the same dual-focus compact camera as the Minolta AF-DL. The difference is the watertight camera body of the Weathermatic which makes it a real camera for aquanauts, with waterproofing to 5m. The electrically driven dual focus lens is hidden behind a water-tight window and the battery compartment is sealed. A big sports finder can be mounted to ease usage under water with goggles. A button on the back of the camera enables "macro" close-ups underwater. Under water the camera works in fix-focus mode, making it usable for distances between 1.2 and 3.6 metres. The camera was originally supplied in a bright yellow kit bag with several accessories.
