Minolta XD11 Chrome / Black leatherette
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.
This XD11 is in excellent condition, just a few shallow scratches on the bottom (from a tripod mount) and very minor chrome pitting next to the shutter speed dial - all 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. Rewind knob is a bit tight when pulled to open the film door. Viewfinder is bright with just a few tiny specs of dust, which will not affect shooting. Brand new light seals and mirror bumper were installed. Original leatherette on the body was professionally replaced with new black leatherette for a classic look.
This camera is equipped with Minolta MD Rokkor-X 50mm f/1.7 normal prime. Glass is blemish-free, no visible scratches or fungus. Aperture is snappy and blades are free from oil. Focusing is smooth. The barrel of the lens shows minimal signs of wear. The lens comes with a Skylight filter and Minolta front cap.
This bundle also includes a Minolta Winder D, refinished in matching leatherette ($25 value on its own) and a Promaster FT 1700 articulating flash. Both work great witht he camera (require AA batteries - not provided). Genuine Minolta camera strap a set of fresh batteries for the meter are included as well.
