The Minolta Pocket Autopak 460Tx is a sophisticated little viewfinder camera for the popular type No. 110 16mm film cassettes. It was launched in 1979 by Minolta. The built-in electronic flash pops out to the side when switched on. The x at the end of the name stands for extra and separates it from the Autopak 460T. The main difference is an illuminated distance scale on top of the camera when the flash is activated (because you're shooting in the dark). Switchable 26mm (f3.5-f8.0) / 43mm (f4.7-f13.5), zone focusing (3.3ft to infinity) lens. The camera has a mechanical shutter with a speed of 1/200 of a second. A CDS meter provides programmed exposure control and it has a 3-position aperture setting, for sun, cloudy, or flash. The camera works best with ASA 100 or 400 speed film. The telephoto lens is also a good macro: the view from 3.3 foot is only 9x11", about the same as when using some close-up lenses. The viewfinder shows a red warning LED if the built-in flash needs to be selected and there is also an audible low-light alarm. When the flash is selected, the distance scale glows green for easy focusing. The viewfinder LED and an external orange light flicker when the flash is ready. It also has a built-in sliding lens cover that when closed locks the shutter. The camera has no close-up lens, tripod socket, or cable release socket. The camera uses a single AA cell and the dimensions are 1 1/8” tall x 2 3/8” wide x 6 1/2" long.
