Minolta is a household name when it comes to film cameras. Established in Japan in 1928, its range of manual and autofocus film cameras are still a popular choice among analog photographers. More recently, Minolta has launched a brand new product - a digital, instant camera that prints credit card-sized photos. 

The Minolta name disappeared from cameras back in 2006, when the Konica Minolta sold its digital camera technology onto Sony. The new range is being brought to the market under license by Elite Brands.
