This is the Japaese version of the Minolta Maxxum 350si. Same basic features as the Minolta Maxxum 300si with the addition of the panorama feature and a date back. The simplest and easiest to use Maxxum AF SLR, with fully automatic operation, subject program selection, and built-in flash. The Maxxum 300si handles and operates just like a fully automatic point & shoot camera, yet it provides the high-quality end results and system flexibility that only an SLR camera can. Because it's so easy to use, the Maxxum 300si offers something for everyone, and is perfect for beginners. And since it is part of the Maxxum AF System, the 300si enables you to expand your photographic capabilities with lenses, flash units, and accessories as your interest in photography grows.
