Minolta SRT Super, Jitra 2009

 

This is my first Minolta SLR and I was surprised of the weight of this machine. I used to own Pentax K1000 in the early 80s and I guess the size and weight of the two are almost identical. This one was delivered to my office in a hard case box fitted with Rokkor 55mm f/1.7. After some googling, I found out that this particular model was named differently depending on where you got them. The Minolta SR-T Super (SR-T 102 in USA and Canada, SR-T 303 elsewhere) is basically a Minolta SR-T 101, but with a flash hot shoe, a focusing screen with split-image-rangefinder, multi-exposure-capability, and the selected aperture value visible in the viewfinder.

The camera has been cleaned, fitted with cheap mercury battery replacement and the metering works just fine. The seller also supplied me with the 70-200mm Pentacon zoom which is full of fungus. I'll leave the zoom for a while until the need arises.
