  • Minolta XD11 Chrome / Brown Lizard

    Top-of-the-line Minolta film SLR of 1977, XD11 is a very capable and highly collectable camera. XD-series were beautifully built and loaded with advanced features, including shutter and aperture priority mode shooting and DOF preview. The camera was developed by Minolta in conjunction with Leica, and the body became the basis for the Leica R4. Full user manual is available here.

    This XD11 in in near-mint condition, just a few shallow scratches on the bottom consistent with normal use and age of the camera. No dents or brassing on painted surfaces. Shutter is smooth and quiet, fires accurately at all speeds, film transport, self-timer and meter work properly. Viewfinder is bright and clear from dust. Light seals and mirror bumper were just replaced with fresh foam ($25 value). Original leatherette on this camera was professionally replaced with brand new cover made from genuine leather embossed with Brown Lizard pattern.

    The lens that comes with this unit is a fast Minolta MD Rokkor-X 50mm f/1.4. Glass is blemish-free, no scratches or fungus. Aperture is snappy and blades are free from oil. Focusing is smooth. The barrel of the lens shows minimal wear, just a few tiny nicks on the front rim (doesn't affect filter mounting). Comes with genuine Minolta UV filter and new generic front cap. Great lens, made in Japan.

    Couple of useful accessories are included with this camera: Minolta power film winder D and Auto 200x power flash unit. Both are in excellent shape and work great with the camera (require AA batteries, not provided). Finally, a colorful vintage camera strap, leather camera case (both in matching brown tones) and a set of fresh batteries for the meter are included as well. Stunning set, one of the cleanest cameras in stock.
