Minolta XG9 Black / Amethyst Lizard
Rare black-body Minolta XG9 in near mint condition, with brand new light seals and fast 50mm prime. Perfect starter film SLR, this was introduced as one of the more full-featured cameras in Minolta XG series. Full range of manual shutter speeds and aperture priority mode with light meter indication, bright viewfinder with lens aperture window - ergonomic and easy to use. Stunning camera, in Amethyst Lizard pattern genuine leather skin.
Shutter, meter, film transport and timer all work properly. Brand new light seals and mirror guard were installed ($25 value). NOTE: in this camera (and other XG-series Monoltas) light meter indicator in the viewfinder works in A mode only. This is by design, and NOT a defect.
Excellent++. No dents or major blemishes, no brassing - black bodies are seldom found in this condition. Clean and sharp lettering on the dials. Focusing screen and viewfinder are bright, with just a few tiny specs of dust (will not affect shooting). Original leatherette was professionally replaced with genuine leather embossed in Amethyst Lizard pattern.
