The Minolta AF 101R is a cheap autofocus compact camera launched in 1994. The "R" in the model name stands for red eye reduction, which is done by a separate lamp near the flash. While a basic model, it is not as limited as some Riva AF cameras of the early 90s. With a slow (f/5,6) wide angle 28 mm lens, autofocus may seem superfluous, and it is thereby not suprising that Minolta also built a fixed-focus model with the same body and lens: the Minolta F 20R. The AF 101R was sold both in black and silver.
