The Minolta Freedom III / Freedom 3 is a compact camera. It was introduced in the mid-1980s. The model was produced by the Asian company in a factory in Japan. The Freedom III was mainly sold on the North American market. It was available to photographers in other parts of the world under the names “Minolta MAC-7” and “Minolta AF-Z“.
The lens of the camera is fixed. The name “Minolta Lens” adorns the lens. The focal length is 35 mm and the widest aperture of the lens is f/2.8. There is no need to focus manually with the Minolta Freedom III. The camera has an autofocus system. The closest focusing distance for this lens is listed as 65 cm. This is the minimum distance you need to keep in order to get sharp images.
The photo camera has a built-in exposure meter. It can be used with films from ISO 25 to ISO 1600. The camera technology uses a sensor to determine the correct film speed via the DX code. If this code is missing, the camera always sets a value of ISO 100. The aperture and shutter speed are set automatically by the 35 mm camera. There is no exposure compensation.
The built-in flash provides sufficient light. 4 meters is the specified range at a sensitivity of ISO 100 with the automatic flash. Additionally, there is a mode where the flash can be used as fill-in flash. A self-timer is also available.
The 35mm camera has a thread for a tripod on the bottom. There is also an attachment for a camera strap. The dimensions of the Minolta Freedom III are 13.5 x 7.2 x 4 cm. It weighs 295 grams with its black body.
The camera requires one DL223 battery (eBay / Amazon). Alternatively, however, you can use four AAA batteries if you don’t have direct access to the other battery type. Depending on the battery type, you can take about 1200 or 430 photos with one battery charge.
