Possibly the brightest purchase today!

The Minolta X-370 is the perfect choice to start off with “real” photography. Now there’s extra value, extra versatility from a landscape-to-portrait 35-70mm zoom lens.

It’s technology is there to guide you, not over-rule you. Aperture-Priority AE is there for perfect exposure with depth of focus under your control. AE lock helps expose your main subject accurately in difficult light conditions.

On “Manual” the Minolta X-370 tells you what settings it would choose, so you can compare with your own. What other camera gives you “professional” lessons before you decide to shoot?

The Minolta Matte Screen gives you the brightest, sharpest viewfinder image possible for fast and easy focusing even in low light conditions.

The Minolta X-370 has smooth controls, easy film loading, a range of superb quality additional lenses and accessories, and a top shutter speed of 1/1000th of a second that sets standards in reliability and accuracy.

Call in at you Minolta Dealer and if you are serious about “real” photography insiste they show you the Minolta X-370 with the 35mm-70mm zoom lens.

It could be the brightest decision you’ve made today.
