The Minolta P-Twin is a bi-focal compact autofocus camera, ostensibly released only in Japan in 1992. The "P" in the model name refers to the panoramic mode, while "Twin" refers to the lens with 30 mm wide angle and 50 mm normal focal lengths. A button on the top switches focal length, while a button on the front activates focus lock or slow-sync flash mode. The P-Twin was an OEM product by Chinon, which also sold it under its own brand as the Pocket Dual AF-P.
