Minolta Hi-Matic AF2

Item is an automatic, auto-focus 35mm camera with built-in flash and electronic shutter. The Hi-Matic AF2 was the first 35mm rangefinder camera with active infrared auto-focus, which uses an infrared beam to determine the distance of objects in the viewfinder. It was launched in 1981 as the successor of Minolta's Hi-Matic AF. The lens is a Minolta 38mm f/2.8 4-element with a 46mm filter thread, and angle of view of 58°. The focus of the camera is 1 meter to infinity and is auto-focus is activated when the shutter is slightly pressed. The viewfinder is bright and features parallax-correction marks. A 10-second self-timer is mounted beside the lens. The camera has a built-in "warning system" that automatically beeps to notify the user of low light, so they might turn on the flash. The camera's warning system also beeps at the user should the image be out of the focus or flash range. This was one of the last of the high-quality Hi-Matic series manufactured by Minolta. Dimensions are 53.5 x 76 x 129mm.

Heritage Camera Collection

  • Collection
  • [between ca. 1860 and 2010]

The Heritage Camera Collection is comprised of cameras, mainly from the Wilhem E. Nassau Camera Collection, the Irving G. Rumney fonds, and several other small, individual donations.

This collection traces the evolution of the tools of popular photography from the turn of the nineteenth century to the current digital age. Many of the cameras were manufactured by Kodak Canada or Eastman Kodak, but there are also examples from many other manufacturers, such as: Ernst Leitz, Minox, Polaroid, Nikon, Rollei, Mamiya, Olympus, Contax, and several companies that pre-date, and were eventually amalgamated into Kodak, including the Rochester Optical Company.

Items in the collection are arranged in series according on their form and function; the categories are based on the research and publications of Michel Auer and Todd Gustavson, and often overlap chronologically.

Series are as follows:

Early cameras
Dry plate cameras
Field cameras
Folding (bellows) cameras
Box and snapsot roll film cameras
Detective cameras
Panoramic cameras
Miniature and sub-miniature cameras
Single lens reflex cameras
Twin lens reflex cameras
35mm cameras
In-camera processing (instant) cameras
Point and shoot caemras
One-time-use cameras
Digital and pre-digital cameras
Toy and promotional cameras
Motion-picture cameras
Video cameras
