The Dynax 60 is a autofocus 35mm SLR camera from Minolta in 2004. It is also known as the Maxxum 70 and the α-70 Alpha 70.
The electronically controlled vertical traveling focal-plane shutter has speeds of 30s to 1/2000 of a sec. with a flash sync of 1/90. Exposure modes have PASM along with a PA and PS mode. The program exposure mode contains 5 separate modes including portrait, landscape, close-up, sport and night portrait. The metering is TTL based on a 14 segment honeycomb silicon photo cell with a range of 1 to 20 EV (ISO 100, f/1.4) and a spot metering range of 4 to 20 EV. It can use DX encoded films with speeds of 25 to 5000 ISO. Non-DX films can be set from 6 to 6400 ISO in 1/3 stops.
The film transport is motorized with film advance settings of single or a continuous drive speed of up to 3fps. Rewinding the film is automatic at the end of the roll, but a manual rewind is also possible before the end of the roll. The camera is powered by two CR2 batteries.
