The Minister family consists of the Minister (1960), Minister II, Minister D (1963), Minister 700 (1964), and the Minister III(1966). The Minister II (as with the majority of Ministers) exists with a f/2.8 4.5 cm lens (1962) or with a f/1.9 (1964) lens.

The Minister II is a rangefinder camera, equipped with an uncoupled exposure meter. On the back of the camera, a small ridged knob is rotated to tell the exposure meter the sensitivity of the film in the camera.

The shutter is a Copal SVL. LVS (or SVL) means Light Value Scale. This indicates the system of setting the shutter, in which the aperture (f-stop) and shutter speed are coupled. Reading the meter yields a number which must be set on the LVS ring of the lens. It is the outermost ring. The setting of the LVS ring determines the aperture that will be used, by taking account of the speed selected on the intermediate ring.
