A while ago, my parents gave me a box full of all their old film cameras. I've been slowly picking through them. I have a Minolta Freedom 90 Zoom point and shoot. Seems like it was a pretty decent camera. Everything appears to work but the battery went dead before I loaded a film so I'm not sure of the quality of the lens and auto exposure system. It takes a 2CR5 battery...which appears to cost between $7.00 on eBay and $12.00 at the local Home depot. So, I'm wondering if this plastic fantastic from the 1990's (?) is worth the expense of a battery?
Was this a decent camera? or just another one to toss in the discard pile?
