The Minolta Hi-Matic GF from 1984 is the last model in the Hi-Matic series.

It's a very lightweight (214 gr.) compact viewfinder with a 38mm f/4 lens and a 46mm filter thread.

The lens can be focused in 4 zones and has a 3 step (cloudy/hazy/sunny) aperture. The camera has a light measuring cell on the front which only functions as an indicator for a red low-light warning LED next to the viewfinder window, the sensitivity of the cell can be set in 2 positions, 100 and 400ISO. It has a single shutter speed of around 1/100 sec.

The "flash on" switch charges the flash and pops up the flash light, an indicator light shows when it's ready. It takes 2 AA batteries to operate.

The GF was also available in red.
