I bought a Minolta Hi-Matic AF2 for $10, and unexpectedly it has been worth the money. It’s a point-and-shoot autofocus camera from Minolta that came out in 1981. There’s not much to using it – load two AA batteries, load a roll of film, and shoot until you’re done; film advance and rewind are manual affairs. When you press the shutter, you’ll be hard-pressed to hear anything actually happen during focusing in the 38mm f/2.8 lens. Most of the shots on this test roll had the intended subject in focus, but there are a couple where you can tell the autofocus picked something in the background instead of the foreground – I didn’t quite get the hang of the focus and recompose option on the camera.
