The Minolta A3 was a fixed-lens rangefinder camera made by Chiyoda Kōgaku Seikō in 1959, featuring:

  • Chiyoko Rokkor-TE 45mm / f2.8 lens, coupled to rangefinder, with 5 elements in 3 groups and 8 aperture blades.
  • Optiper-Citizen MVL shutter with speeds B, 1sec to 1/500sec, M/F/X flash sync and with self-timer.

The A3 lacked parallax correction for its brightline finder, unlike its predecessor the A-2 and its successor the A5.

The Minolta A3 was a radical design change compared to the Minolta A-2. The camera body design of the A3 gave the model most of the following Minolta rangefinder cameras.

The cameras top feature was its fully flash synchronized 1sec.-1/500sec. Citizen Optiper leaf shutter. It had a 1:2.8 50mm Rokkor lens and a bright-frame finder with super-imposed coupled rangefinder.

The camera had a rapid film advance lever, a resetable exposure counter and a self-timer.
