Minolta XD11 Chrome / Blackberry
Classic Minolta XD11 bundle with a rare power film winder! Just serviced and refinished in custom genuine Blackberry leather. Co-developed with Leica, XD series cameras were revolutionary at the time and is still widely considered to among the best film cameras Minolta ever produced. They were the first Minolta SLRs to feature automated shutter-priority mode. Excellent choice for a student or collector.
Shutter, self-timer and film transport work properly (timer is a bit sluggish). Meter is functional and appears accurate, but was not verified with film. Brand new light seals and mirror guard installed
EXC. No dents or major cosmetic blemishes. Minor chrome pitting on top, near prism cover, a couple of tiny nicks on the top - nothing that will detract from overall clean and well preserved appearance. Sharp, legible lettering on the dials. Focusing screen and viewfinder are dust-free. Original leatherette was professionally replaced with genuine smooth cowhide leather in Blackberry color.
- Minolta MC Rokkor-PF 55mm f/1.7 prime lens. EXC condition, scratch-free glass, no fungus. Just a touch of internal haze and dust (will not affect performance). Aperture is snappy, blades are oil-free. Focusing is smooth. The barrel shows minimal signs of use, no dents. Comes with new generic front cap.
- Minolta power film wider D. Works fine, good cosmetically. Refinished in Blackberry leather to match the camera. Rare accessory, sells for $25 on its own.
- Promaster compact flash. Clean inside and out, works properly (batteries not included).
- Original camera manual, set of fresh batteries, wrist camera strap, remote shutter release cable, body cap and a roll of film (expired, use at your own risk).
