Item details

Launched in 1960, the Minolta A5 was the last of Minolta's non-metered A-series rangefinder cameras and the first version, like this one, were developed from the Minolta A3.

These first versions were made with Citizen shutters with exposure times of 1 sec. down to 1/500 sec and with a four-element 1:2.8/45mm Rokkor fixed lens. These earlier versions also have cold accessory shoes, and a rotating exposure counter wheel exposed on the top cover.

Fully working, this camera is in very good condition (see photos). The self-timer and rangefinder have all been tested. All the shutter speeds and apertures are selectable and are working. The camera is supplied with its original lens cap, lens hood and an every-ready carry case, which is worn and in two parts, but still protects the camera well. The lens is clear enough to with some minor haze, which adds vintage charm to final images.

A lovely 1960's snapper, perfect for street/lomo photography.
