Minolta Maxxum 5 35mm Film SLR Camera with 28 - 80mm F/3.5-5.6 Zoom Lens - Perfect for Photography Students
Here we have a fully functional and excellent condition Minolta Maxxum 5 35mm film SLR camera, with Minolta 28-80mm F/3.5-5.6 zoom lens and lens cap.
Both the camera and lens are in excellent condition and are fully functional, however the lens filter threads have an area of damaged plastic that can be seen in the photos. This does not impact image quality or functionality, but because of this imperfection the camera is being sold at a discount.
Batteries are not included with this camera.
This camera is the kind of camera that's perfect for anyone, from the student photographer to the advanced enthusiast. It features the full suite of shooting modes, including fully automatic program, aperture priority, shutter priority, and full manual modes.
Because of this, it's a camera that can operate like a point and shoot (frame your shot and have fun), or a professional style SLR in which every aspect of the photograph is under direct control of the photographer.
It's well made, long-lasting, and durable.
The lens is a very fine example of a capable Minolta-made autofocus lens. The multicoated glass corrects distortion and solves optical aberrations such as color-fringing and lens flares. The focal lengths from 28-80mm run the full range of wide standard to portrait lens, making it possible for this lens to achieve the ends of almost every shooter out there.
Featuring auto-focus and switchable manual focus, the camera continues to give the shooter options. Add to this a choice of metering modes for pinpoint lighting precision, automatic film advance and rewind, and many choices of semi-auto shooting modes, and it's clear this camera can do it all.
It accepts any of Minolta's excellent A-mount lenses, which means that this is a camera that can grow with you as you buy more lenses for specialized shooting.
It will be carefully packaged and shipped immediately.
