Minolta Weathermatic 35DL – week 44 results

The Weathermatic 35DL was a mixed bag of results. The good news is that the seals proved watertight. My excursion to the water park left it unscathed. The outdoor shots came out nicely. The flash, however, was another matter.

I’m not sure if the problem was in the flash unit or the metering, but all of my indoor exposures were very dark with odd color shifts. They took a lot of post-processing in order to be usable.

The verdict? It’s rugged. It will be one of my go-to cameras for hazardous outdoor shooting such as the beach or hiking in the mountains. I just won’t be using it indoors.


There really were lights at the water park, I swear.

Slight measuring issue. . .
