Popular SLR of the 80's, Minolta XG-M is a great choice for a beginner film shooter or a student. More compact and lighter than other cameras of the period, very ergonomic and easy to use, with a bright viewfinder and full manual control of the shutter speeds, along with aperture-priority mode. Set lens aperture is displayed in the viewfinder, very convenient feature.
This particular camera is in EXC++ condition, with no brassing, scratches or dents. Shutter fires accurately at all speeds, film transport and meter all work properly. Timer LED is out, but the timer itself works well. Viewfinder and focusing screen are bright and clear, no dust in the field of view. Light seals and mirror bumper were replaced. This body was professionally refinished in a beautiful Palomino genuine leather, sure to bring a lot of compliments.
This camera comes with Minolta MD 50mm f/2.0 standard prime lens. Th elens is in mint condition, with clear, scratch-free glass. No dents, no fungus or oil on aperture blades, all rings rotate smoothly, aperture is snappy. Genuine Minolta camera strap, UV filter and a generic front cap for the lens are included. Finally, we bundled this camera with a compact Meikai flash unit which syncs and fires properly, when used with the camera. Excellent clean film SLR, at a budget price point.
