Minolta XD5 Chrome / Charcoal
Minolta XD5 film SLR in beautiful, near-mint condition, with new light seals and genuine leather skin - two lens bundle! 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, in an arguably more robust package. 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. Meter accuracy appears spot-on, but was not verified with film. Self-timer is a bit sluggish. Brand new light seals and mirror guard installed.
MINT-. No dents or noticeable cosmetic blemishes. Bright and sharp lettering on the dials. Focusing screen and viewfinder are clear of dust. Original leatherette was professionally replaced with genuine Charcoal leather - as close as you can get to original factory leatherette.
