The Minolta Riva 35, known as the Freedom 50N in America, is a basic fixed-focus compact camera released around 1991. The Riva GT (US: Freedom GT) is just a cosmetic variation of the Riva 35. It has a built-in flash, but no self-timer. The lens is protected by a sliding cover. A dateback version was also available. It is the follow-up to the FS-35/Freedom 50, with the same specifications.
