The Ansco Autoset CdS is a 1964 viewfinder camera manufactured by Minolta and marketed by Ansco. (In the mid-1960s, Ansco transitioned to using the brand GAF, after their corporate parent, General Aniline & Film.)
As the name implies, the autoexposure system uses a CdS meter cell; but this is located in the top housing rather than within the lens filter ring (as with the contemporary Minolta Hi-Matic 7). Unlike the earlier Autoset model, the CdS does not seem to have a direct Minolta equivalent.
