Point and Shoot's Big Three

Each boasting superior lenses, the following trio of uncomplicated point-and-shoot cameras. Lightweight, the titanium bodied, perfectly box-shaped cameras released between 1994 and 2001 are quite irresistible. While they're pricier these days than at onset, taken care of well they guarantee a lifetime of meaningful and memorable photos.

Who are the Big Three in 35mm point-and-shoot cameras? With its titanium finish, the highly attractive Contax T3, the Minolta TC-1 with its circular diaphragm, and the distinctive Nikon 28Ti with its analogue display. Because photos are worth 1,000 words, let the pictures do the talking…

Speed Range: 16s to 1/1200s

Minolta TC-1
Lens: Rokkor-G 28mm f/3.5 lens

Nikon 28Ti
