The Minolta I bought at a B&H in New York on a trip I made there some years ago. 35mm is the film size/format. I got the camera with a 50mm lens which I used during the Paris trip. Also, if you're new to film I would recommend Kodak Portra 400 as the film stock you start with. It has very good exposure latitude and I love the way it renders colours. Since travel isn't a popular option these days I'd recommend you check eBay for the camera. I'm sure you can find a cheap one in good working condition. When I first got the camera I spent a good amount of time watching Youtube videos learning how to load film into the camera etc. Didn't want to mess up a roll. No doubt, you will enjoy it.
