The Minolta X-700
One of my frist film camera is Minolta X-700, I felt in love with this camera at the first sight when my friend (Còm Nhom) showed me in Đà Lạt, Việt Nam.
The Minolta X-700 is a 35 mm single-lens reflex film camera introduced by Minolta in 1981. It was the top model of their final manual-focus SLR series before the introduction of the auto-focus Minolta Maxxum 7000. The X-700 was awarded the European “Camera of the Year” award in 1981, and its competitive pricing resulted in its becoming the most successful Minolta camera since the SRT line. As Minolta began to introduce its auto-focus cameras and lenses, further research and development of manual-focus 35mm SLR cameras was shelved. Some internal components of the X-700 were changed over its production run, apparently in an effort to further reduce costs. Minolta was also one of the first major 35mm SLR manufacturer to outsource assembly of its cameras to countries outside Japan. The camera was discontinued in 1999 (Wiki).
The X-700 is easy to use and useful for who wanna have a film camera, it have an auto mode (A: Apenture mode & P: Programme mode). So many friends of mine are using The X-700 and there are some samples of it.
