The Minolta Disc-5 is a simple, flat camera for Disc film cartridges, a format introduced by Kodak in 1982 and this camera was introduced soon after in 1983. The Disc-5 has 2 shutter speeds, 1/100 of a second and 1/200 of a second. It uses a fixed focus 12.5mm f/2.8 lens combined with a selenium cell controlled aperture to expose the film. A sliding door in front of the viewfinder also closes the lens so both are covered when not in use. This model was also available in designer patterns and colors but named the Courrèges AC 101. Like many of the Kodak disc cameras it has a lifetime battery that should not be exchanged by the user for it is very difficult. It was amazing how many years the battery lasted even with a built in flash. The camera also uses a slide selector under the lens for close-up and landscape. When slid in the close-up position a lens is placed in front of the original but does not change the viewfinder. Although the quality of the pictures with this camera was better than most, it still was not great and this led to the demise of the disc film. The only other feature is a swivel hard point for a carry strap.
