    Minolta APZ Freedom Zoom 105i

    I saw a MINOLTA APZ FREEDOM ZOOM 105i on ebay, interesting looking camera, thought it might be an APS cam, but I can find NO information on it, anywhere. Some of the auctions described it as 35mm, but the similarity between APZ and APS is too close for comfort. On the plus side, nobody claims it has a panorama mode.

    The following info was gleaned from various auctions...

    Autofocus zoom 35-105 mm 1:4-6.7 Minolta Lens
    Accessory size 40.5 mm (ex filters)
    Left Hand controlled lens selection
    Self Timer
    Flash Control
    Power switch
    Tripod Mount
    Ergonomic grip
    Premature Rewind (pre-wind? Odd thing to call it.)
    DX coded
    Auto film Advanced Rewind
    Auto Flash
    requires 2 cr5 lithium

    I'm curious enough to want to buy one just to see what it is, but I'd sure like to know beforehand if I can put film in it!

    Google is your friend. It's 35mm. I hope you didn't pay much for it: the second link on Google is for sale for $7. I got mine for $2 from a garage sale several years ago. I have no idea why I bought it. I think I shot one short roll with it and put it on the shelf, where it's been ever since. I'd forgotten I had it until I saw the picture of it when I googled it just now.

    Thanks Mike. Google didn't show me diddly. And it's instructive, I think, that nobody thought enough of this camera to post a review on it.
