The Minolta Autopak was introduced by Minolta in 1966. It is a rare collector's item since it is a rangefinder camera with coupled rangefinder, thus going far beyond the "almost toy camera" approach of the most other cameras for type No. 126 film cassettes. The camera had a CdS-controlled exposure program which could set aperture/ahutter-speed automatically between f2.8 1/30 sec and f22 1/250 sec. The camera had a hot shoe. The lens was a Rokkor 1:2.8/38mm. The solid metal camera weighed 540 g.
