The Minolta AF-SP is an autofocus compact camera, made in 1989 by Minolta. It shares its basic characteristics with the AF-E II, but with additional weather-proofing. The lens is a 35 mm f/4,5, it runs on a photo-lithium battery or plain AAA alkalines. It sets film speed automatically with DX coded film cartridges, but only at ISO 100 or 400 speed.
