The Minolta Hi-Matic G was launched in 1974 and is a 35mm Point & Shoot compact viewfinder camera. Like the other Hi-Matic’s it had automatic exposure. And like other 1970s Hi-Matic’s it had the CdS window inside the filter ring plus a two contactor hot shoe for the flash. With this camera Minolta overcame the "Electro Control" system which needed two batteries. Its CdS controlled exposure program set speed/aperture combinations from 1/30 second f2.8 to 1/650 second f14. The focusing ring had four distance symbols. F-Stop and shutter speed were shown in the viewfinder. The camera can use film up to 400 ASA and has a 38mm 2.8mm 4 element lens plus leaf shutter. The dimensions are 116×71×53 mm and it weighs 375 grams. The camera also has a right thumb film advance leaver, fold down rewind crank handle that releases the back cover when pulled up, electronic shutter release port, frame counter, and an optical viewfinder.
