Minolta XD5 Chrome / Yellow Alligator
Another beautifully restored Minolta XD5, ready for your enjoyment. 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. "Little brother" to the flagship XD11, XD5 is missing just a couple of convenience features of this thought-after camera, at significant savings. Both models share design elements with Leica R4 and are an excellent choice for a student or advanced film shooter.
Shutter, meter, self-timer and film transport work properly. Brand new light seals installed.
Excellent+. No major blemishes, just micro-scratches on the bottom from normal use. Bright and sharp lettering on the dials. Focusing screen and viewfinder are pristine. Original leatherette was professionally replaced with a new genuine leather embossed in "Blue Diamond" pattern.
- Minolta MD Rokkor-X 50mm f/1.7 normal prime. Excellent condition, with scratch-free glass, just minor internal dust (will have no effect on performance). Aperture is snappy and blades are free from oil. Focusing is smooth. The barrel shows minimal wear, mostly on the front rim , no dents. Hoya Skylight filter and new generic front cap are included.
- Focal DA-2000 flash unit. Excellent functional condition. Charges and fires properly (batteries not included). Genuine Minolta camera strap, roll of film (expired, use at your own risk!) and a set of fresh batteries.
