 Minolta Vectis S-1, one of only two Single Lens Reflex models developed by Minolta for use with the Advanced Photo System (APS) film format.  The camera was made in Malaysia starting in 1996 and was a full system camera with a brand new and unique Minolta V bayonet lens mount of which only eight lenses were made.  The Vectis S-1 was a well equipped model, including most of the same features found on mid level 35mm SLRs of the same era, including multiple auto focus and auto exposure modes, a pop up flash, a wide range of shutter speeds, a unique glass and mirror viewfinder with full information display, plus a number of shooting modes.  The Vectis was not produced for long, but that might have had more to do with the failure of APS film, rather than the camera itself.
