Review – Minolta Weathermatic Dual35 Camera

Minolta Weathermatic Dual35Sorry I have been away for so long. Been a busy month of friends visiting and travelling 🙂 Alas I am finally writing about the Minolta Dual35 Weathermatic camera. It is a cousin or maybe even closer relative of the Minolta Weathermatic-A which I reviewed a few years ago.  The main difference between the cameras is that the Dual35 is made to take 35mm film instead of 110. Earlier this year I also reviewed the underwater use of the Canon A1 Sureshot which is the Canon equivalent of this camera. I hope that you have some time to review both of those other cameras.

The camera had a wide range of accessories that you can still sometimes find such as the matching case and watertight film canisters. You can see me stylin on Instagram below with the matching yellow accessory case.
