  • Minolta X570 Black / Brown Lizard

    Second of the two Minolta X-570 bundles we are listing for sale. 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 VGC condition. Shutter fires accurately at all speeds, meter, timer, film transport all work properly. Viewfinder and focusing screen are bright with just a few tiny specs of dust (zero effect on photo quality). Light seals and mirror guard were just replaced ($25 value). No dents on the body, just a few micro-scratches from normal use and some shallow scuffs on the back of film door. Original leatherette on this camera has been professionally replaced with genuine lambskin leather embossed with Brown Lizard pattern.

    This camera is bundled with Minolta MD 50mm f/2.0 lens in MINT- condition. Two other lenses are included with the camera: GEMINI 80-200 f/4.5 Macro zoom and JC Penney 2x teleconverter. All three lenses are very clean, with scratch- and fungus-free glass; aperture blades free from oil and snappy, focus is smooth. Barrels are blemish-free with bright lettering on the rings. Lens caps for all lenses are provided, and a new UV filter for the 50mm prime. A compact Vivitar 225 flash in working condition is included as well. The flash in a rough shape cosmetically, but syncs and fires properly with the camera, requires AA batteries to function (not provided). Colorful vintage camera strap and a set of fresh batteries for the meter are included. High quality film SLR, uniquely customized.
