    I have the back, I just need the operating instructions. Its the one that controls interval shooting , timed exposures etc. on the X-700
    I can't find a model # anywhere on the back or the box either one, just "multi function back"
    Thanks

    Mulit-function back for X series cameras

    Despite being a long time photo enthusiast I just recently came across this great site! I was in a search for the instructions for the hard-to-find Multi-function back and came across this site and thread. I acquired the back for an upcoming project and have been stifled in finding instructions. Upon finding this thread I see that I am not the only one with the problem. Would someone please help me out?

    Thanks in advance from North Georgia, USA

    Good morning, Brian;

    You can also contact Mike Butkus; http://www.butkus.org/chinon/minolta.htm Mike does show the title on the Minolta page down near the bottom, so he probably does have it, but you need to contact him directly to request a copy of the .pdf file. And, you will find many other useful manual titles on his site. If you find Mike's site and manuals helpful, please contribute to the site to help continue having this resource available to us.

    The Minolta X-700 with the MD-1 Motor Drive does just fit my hand perfectly. Everything is right where my fingers expect to find them. And, I have found that my Minolta X-700 with everything on it is still lighter and much more handy than my Anniversary Edition Speed Graphic.
