  • Film SLR of choice by many professional photographers in yearly 80's, Minolta X-570 has many features of the flagship X-700 model, in a simpler to use, more robust package. Full user manual is available here.

    This camera is in EXC++ condition. No dents, scuffs or brassing on the body, just a few micro-scratches from normal use. Shutter fires accurately, meter, timer, film transport all work properly. Viewfinder and focusing screen are bright and clear of dust. Light seals and mirror bumper were replaced ($25 value). The camera comes with original Minolta camera strap, nice Sigma soft camera case and a set of fresh batteries for the meter.

    This camera is equipped with Minolta MD 50mm f/1.7 prime lens in great shape. Glass is scratch- and fungus-free; aperture blades are free from oil, action is snappy. Barrel of the lens is blemish-free with bright lettering on the rings. There are a few tiny scrapes on the front rim, which do not interfere with filter mounting. The lens comes with a Hoya Skylight filter and a generic front cap. Second lens is a Vivitar 70-210mm f/4.5 telephoto zoom. Nice compact zoom lens, made in Japan, with clean, scratch-free glass, works perfectly. This set also comes with a power flash unit, that has some corrosion in the battery compartment, but works well with the camera. Great advanced amateur film bundle, with Minolta famous bright viewfinder - a pleasure to use.
