Week 44 – Minolta Weathermatic 35DL


The Minolta Weathermatic 35DL is a big brother to the Weathermatic A reviewed back in week 7.  It’s a fully automatic, water- and weatherproof 35mm point and shoot.  Everything from advance to flash is fully automated and motorized, with no options available.  The DL stands for Dual Lens; a button on top switches between standard and telephoto lenses.

I’ve been carrying it for a few weeks now with a roll of Portra 400 loaded.  I did have occasion to take it to an indoor water park, and the seals seemed to hold up.  We’ll see what the photos look like soon.
