Minolta Autopak 470 Part 2, Finally Some Photos

I’ve been shooting quite a bit lately with my Rollei A110 but needed a compact film camera with a flash for a night time community block party and realized this would be a great opportunity to once again shoot with my Minolta Autopak 470. I put some button cells in the camera, a battery in the flash, dropped in some Lomography Color Tiger 110 film and slipped the whole thing in the cargo pocket of my dad shorts. It was a fun little shooter and captured some great shots. Here is a photo from that night and some from a later trip to the zoo.

The camera performed well in a variety of lighting situations both with and without flash. The camera is easy to focus and was spot on in most of my shots plus this roll of film didn’t seem to have any of the light leak spots that Color Tiger is known for.

The Minolta’s performance rivaled my Rollei in several images including the one above, one of my favorite shots on this roll.

I had a blast with this camera and love how easy it is to use, definitely the best under $10 camera I own!

  1. I’m excited to use mine. I got it with the box still intact. And they gave me a roll of 110 Fukkatsu to try. Love your photos ❤
