Item details

Well - Minolta's Riva Zoom Pico, or Freedom Action Zoom in the US, is not Minolta's greatest effort ever. It's a tad slow (especially on the shutter release), it has a funny big nose, and it's noisy. But it's solid plastic body does feel like you could throw it down the stairs and it would still be okay. And its quirky, flowy design will make it a fun conversation starter at a party!

The Internet seems collectively uninterested in this camera, so all the info I have is from the beast itself. It features a self-timer, red-eye reduction and you can actually turn the flash off, which is nice for outdoors photography. The lens is a 38-60mm zoom that will not win any sharpness awards, but it actually doesn't do that bad a job. What especially surprised me from the test roll was the autofocus: correct 24 out of 24 times! That is exceptional performance for a point & shoot and something not even a mju-ii will match.

The example on offer here is in fine shape apart from one weird thing; the smell. It's clearly lived in a smoker's home for a long time. But that will probably clear after taking it out a couple times. The glass is fine and all functions work properly: if you're looking for a fun party cam, this is your choice!
