The Minolta Vectis 3000 was a very cute small compact zoom camera of Minolta's Vectis series for the advanced photo system (APS) with built-in flash. It had been manufactured in China. The Vectis remote controller was usable on the Vectis 3000.
The little design monster had typical features of a modern compact camera of its time: autofocus, meter-controlled exposure, date imprinting, title codes, automatic flash mode with or without red eye reduction by an extra flash before exposure, night portrait mode, landscape (without flash) mode, or flash manually on/off-mode instead, focus holding by pressing the shutter-release button halfways, and a self-timer.
