Product Description

Camera comes with a Rokkor 50mm/1:2 Lens, cap for the lens, and a leather neck strap. We are throwing in a nice vintage leatherette camera bag, originally belonging to the Kodak line of instant cameras.

This camera is perfect as an entry level film SLR, but its performances clearly match even a pro level. For example, this edition has Minolta’s ‘Contrast Light Compensator’ (CLC), which monitored the brightest and darkest parts of the scene, evening out the contrast between shadows and highlights. It meant more shadow detail was kept. The CLC system means the camera will help even out the exposure in heavily contrasting scenes, which is of real help if you’ve not had much experience with film. The match needle metering works in the way that if the “needle” is within the “circle” in the viewfinder, the camera thinks you have the correct exposure.

Minolta SRT100X is a fully manual camera, works without any batteries. The small battery that we fitted with the camera is only for the metering. We put it as a model, and whilst the battery still works, might need replacing soon.

Camera is tested for functionality and everything works great. We haven’t tested it with film. Please ask any additional questions.
