Technical Details


Product Description

The Maxxum 7000 is a great autofocus camera for both the beginner and intermediate photographer. In "Program" mode, it is as simple to use as a "point and shoot" camera, yet has the flexibility of Maxxum's interchangeable lens system. To expand your creative control, you can select "Aperture-priority" mode (to control background blur), "Shutter-priority" mode (action pictures) or go completely manual and control both functions. The camera beeps if you are at risk of taking a blurry picture (due to a slow shutter speed) and also to let you know you are in focus. As well, the unit gives visual cues if exposure or focus are out of range. It's pretty hard to take a bad picture with this camera! I

I drooled over this camera in the magazine ads in the 1980's, and drove the people at the camera store nuts asking to see one over and over, and finally got my own in 1989. I got the same setup advertised in the magazines: the camera body with the 35-70 AF zoom and the 2800 flash. I don't think I put it down for about 2 weeks. The autofocus was fast (at the time,) and the exposures were always good. I loved how it set the aperture AND shutter speed for you, and it had a motor drive, and that there were many accessories available. I expanded my lens collection and a few other items as well. Later on, however, once the wonder wore off, I missed some of the manual control of the X-370 and X-700 cameras, and I realized that the autofocus speed was rapidly being left in the dust.
Still, this is a very important camera, since when it came out in 1985 it was the world's first complete autofocus camera system with the AF motors in the camera, not in the lens as an add-on to a regular non-AF camera. For a buyer today, it would be a good backup camera if anyone is still using film out there. Honestly though, I suspect it will appeal more to collectors and people wanting to recapture a cool camera they had in the 80's for nostalgia.

I've been a lover of Minolta since the dawn of time - I have a 7000, 7000i and a 9000. Imagine my utter depression when Minolta decided "no more". My (soon to be 11 year old) son has developed a love for photography as an art. The soul of photography. Not the digital garbage of today, that involves photoshop and computer edit.
Given this, imagine my happiness at finding this camera! Normally, I suppose you don't hand a child this kind of camera to a kid for their 11th birthday. For this price - why not ?!?!
This camera came in excellent condition, and arrived amazingly quickly.
If you have a young person in your life that has an interest in photography as an art, that wants to feel the picture and the soul of the subject rather than a dime a dozen computer image, I recommend this camera!

I bought this camera as a replacement for another damaged camera. After a few test runs, its running pretty well.
Although it arrived a little later than expected, it still arrived at least. I really like shooting this camera with film and the many options.

This camera is in great shape. Received everything mentioned in description with a added bonus, well worth what I paid for it. I currently use a Minolta Maxxum 7000 looking forward to exploring the different options of this camera.

Bought my first Minolta ( SRT 201 ) in the early 70's. Been using them ever since . The 7000 is my first auto camera and it does all as advertised! No, I don't have a digital camera--- I'm just stuck on film!
