Minolta Pocket Autopak 460-TX
I guess the X in TX stands for XTRA. And that's what this camera has
over the 460-T -- EXTRAS! Updated version of 460-T. The main difference
is that it has 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 (3.3 ft to infinity) lens.
Mechanical shutter with speed of 1/200. CDS meter provides programmed exposure
control. 3-position aperture setting, for sun, cloudy, or flash . Built-in
flash. 1 1/8 x 2 3/8 x 6 1/2" . 100 or 400 speed film. The
telephoto lens is also a good macro: the view from 3.3' is only 9x11" --
about the same as when using the close-up lens on the model 450E.
Viewfinder shows a red warning LED if the built-in flash needs to be
selected. There is also an audible low-light alarm. When 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.
Built-in sliding lens cover locks the shutter. No close-up lens,
tripod socket, or cable release socket. The camera uses a single AA cell.
