Maxxum 28-135.jpg

28-135mm f/4 Maxxum zoom ROM and Focal Length encoder.

Again, appears to be four bit. This beautiful encoder is unusual in that it appears to use
conductive carbon strips with the gold colored "contacts" actually connected to the ground plane.

The tracks of the contact spring fingers can be seen in the carbon strips.

Minolta DiMAGE 7
1/90s f/9.5 at 48.7mm iso100 with Flash full exif

other sizes: small medium original auto
