Minolta XD11 35mm Film SLR Camera Body with Body Cap
Here we have a wonderful Minolta XD-11 35mm film SLR camera body with its body cap and new batteries installed.
This camera is fully functional and ready to produce another lifetime of fantastic photos.
The viewfinder, mirrorbox, shutter curtains, pentaprism, film compartment and battery compartment are all clean and in great shape. The top and bottom plate are free of damage. All levers, dials, and knobs actuate as they should. The light meter works perfectly, and the shutter speeds are completely accurate.
The XD-11 was the world's first camera to offer aperture priority and shutter priority shooting modes. It also offered photographers a fully-metered manual mode. This full suite of modes was unprecedented at the time of the camera's release. Then, and today, it gives shooters incredible creative control and allows us to shoot all kinds of photographs with ease.
Developed in conjunction with Leica, the Minolta XD11 is regarded as being one of the absolute best Minolta film cameras ever made. It is an extremely capable, well-built, and beautiful camera. It is used as the basis for many of Leica's SLR cameras, including the Leica R4, R5, R6, and R7.
