Product Description

The classic Minolta XG-1 was a 35mm SLR released in 1982. 

It is quite a capable and lightweight body, and made an excellent camera for a less serious photographer who was interested in auto-exposure, while still retaining the capability for motorised film advance and full manual exposure.  Just set the shutter speed dial to A, choose an aperture, and let the XG 1 do the rest. Super easy!

This kit comes with a wonderfully sharp Minolta MD 50mm F/1.7 lens.

Minolta XG-1 supports both an aperture-priority auto-exposure and manual mode. With a shutter speed range from 1 to 1/1000 second, a switch dial setting for Bulb, film ISO speed range is from 25 to 1600, all of this helps makes it super easy to use.  

The ease of use of the XG-1, affordable high-quality lenses & strong build makes it an excellent choice for not only for the beginner but for the advanced enthusiast as well.
