Product Description

The Minolta XG-M was a 35mm single-lens reflex camera introduced in 1981 by Minolta of Japan. It was also known as the X-70 on the Japanese market, in which it was not available until 1982. When released, it was the top model in Minolta's XG series of consumer-grade manual focus SLRs, replacing the XG-9. Changes from that model included a metered manual mode (the XG-9's meter was switched off in manual), and a revised body style with rearranged controls. This was also the first camera to use Minolta's new logo, which was used until the 2003 merger into Konica Minolta. The body style became Minolta's standard manual-focus SLR body, so the XG-M strongly resembles subsequent Minolta cameras. Body changes from the XG-9 included a new right hand handgrip and stronger internal build allowing the use of a 3.5fps motor drive while the XG bodies were only able to use a 2fps.

I took a photography class with this camera and it made the most beautiful black and white pictures. It's not too heavy and is a wonderful camera. I enjoyed using it and would highly recommend this camera to anyone who likes taking photographs.

Pretty great camera, the seller I ordered mine from threw in a wide angle lens (along w/ the original 45 mm rokkor lens), camera bag, original case, documentation (very cool), flash, and a polarizing filter. They fully tested it before shipping and it arrived quickly and in beautiful condition.

Now, about the camera. Very solid build quality, and it just looks nice. I'm a pretty seasoned photographer, and I've always shot 35 mm. Therefore I'm used to using camera's manually (setting shutter speed, aperture, iso etc etc); but, this camera's aperture priority (I forget the official name) mode is absolutely wonderful. It automatically adjusts shutter speed depending on how much light is entering the camera, and based on the f/ stop your aperture is set on. This is very cool for on-the-fly street photography or other similar cases, just focus the lens and fire that shutter!

This camera is everything you need to get started in 35 mm photography, or it's just fun to have around even as a seasoned photographer like me. Definitely worth it!

(Also, don't know why the images I attached are sideways? Amazon, fix this lol)

Description was clean, working, and in excellent condition. I received a broken, disgustingly dirty, cat pee reeking camera that I had planned to take on my trip in two day instead now I'll be returning this. So sad and disappointed.

Update: So far so good this camera is easy to use and I ended up with some nice photos by the time my photography class ended.
