Minolta Freedom 100 35mm Compact Point & Click Film Camera


1 in stock

The Minolta Freedom 100 is a point-and-shoot camera. It was produced by Minolta and introduced and sold in the 1980s. It is the successor to the Minolta Freedom I and the predecessor to the Minolta Freedom 101. A functionally identical model was sold outside of North America as the Minolta FS-E II.

The camera is equipped with a fixed focal length. This is a focal length of 35 mm. The maximum aperture is f/4.5, so it is not particularly fast. The focus of the lens cannot be changed. The closest focusing distance is 150 cm.

The 35 mm photo camera has a light meter with automatic exposure. Aperture and shutter speed are set automatically. It is designed for films from ISO 100 to ISO 400. The film speed is read from the DX code on the film cartridge. If no code is present, ISO 100 is set.

You won’t find a manual mode nor exposure compensation on this model. There is also no option for positioning on a tripod, nor is there a self-timer. But there is a flash. The flash has a range of up to 3.2 meters at ISO 100, and at ISO 400 the maximum range is 6.4 meters. The charging time of the flash is about 3.6 seconds.

The camera weighs 210 grams and measures 12.9 x 6.95 x 4.7 cm. Two AA batteries (eBay / Amazon) are needed to operate the camera. About 550 pictures are possible with one battery charge. The batteries are also needed for the motor to transport the film.

Every camera we sell is vigorously inspected by our team. Our ten-part inspection method includes the following checks:

  1. Lens - we check for any mould, dust, haze, dirt, cracks and air bubbles. Where possible we clean/remove any imperfections – any remaining are noted.
  2. Zoom – we inspect both manual and power zoom work smoothly. Any issues are noted.
  3. Focus – we check that manual focus is smooth and works well. If automatic focus is included as a feature that is also checked.
  4. Motor / Claw – we check that the motor runs smoothly at all advertised speeds and that the film claw has sufficient torque to advance film.
  5. Filmgate – this is inspected and any dirt or hair is removed.
  6. Lightmeter – the lightmeter is inspected to ensure it automatically reacts correctly to light. Manual aperture control and/or backlight is also checked if included as a feature.
  7. Viewfinder – we inspect for mould, dust and haze or damage. Where possible we clean/remove any imperfections – any remaining is noted.
  8. Battery terminals - we inspect for rust/corrosion, cleaning and repairing where needed.
  9. Body – where possible we clean any imperfections. Any remaining cosmetic damage is noted.
  10. Additional Features – all additional model specific features (such as timelapse or crossfade) are checked for functionality.

Unless specifically mentioned in the product description, all items sold through our website have passed the above inspection and are fully working. With thousands of sales under our belt and 3000+ positive reviews our customers have found that our inspections are comprehensive and correctly reflect the condition of the camera. In the unlikely case that there is an issue, we offer a full 60 day warranty – allowing you plenty of time to check the camera yourself.
