Minolta FS-E II (called Freedom 100 in America) is a fixed-focus compact camera, largely based on the AF-E II. It has motor drive, built-in flash and runs on common AA batteries. It uses DX-coded films, but only at ISO 100 or ISO 400.

Minolta sold dedicated close-up and teleconverter auxiliary lenses for the FS-E II. Versions with quartz-date data back were avialable, as well as a red colored model.

The follow-up Minolta FS-E III (Freedom 101) is exactly the same camera, only with an added self-timer button.
