Rating: no ratingThe 5 was an easy-to-use, compact, and feature-packed film camera using core technologies from the Minolta Alpha/Dynax/Maxxum 7. The Alpha/Dynax/Maxxum 5 incorporated advanced autofocus (AF) technology, powerful film drive, relatively fast shutter speeds, and several creative features including 14 custom functions, into a small and light silver-colored SLR camera body. Like all other autofocus Minolta cameras, it used the same lenses initially offered in the mid-1980s. Also available was a battery grip (BP-200) for extended 35 mm film shooting.
The Maxxum 3 and Maxxum 4 are based on this Minolta, being less feature-rich entry-level cameras. This fifth generation (Alpha/Dynax/Maxxum 3/4/5, 7 & 9) were the last full generation of film cameras that Minolta made with only two more film cameras (Aplha/Dynax/Maxxum 60 and 40) produced before merging with Konica and leaving the 35 mm camera business all together.
