The Minolta Vectis GX-4 was the waterproof model of the GX sub-series of Minolta's APS-camera series Vectis. The Vectis GX cameras were a series of splash-proof and waterproof fancy cameras like the Minolta Vectis GX-2. The camera design is unique for its one big bull's eye. Both, camera lens and viewfinder together use this window. The 27mm "focus-free" lens makes it a point-and-shoot camera. Exposure is fully automatic, automatically adding flash at low light. The main control lever of the camera switches from "camera off" to the three selectable APS print formats or to a self-timer mode.
