    The X-370 is a pleasant camera to use and has a nice bright finder. When I had one I found the older MC Rokkor lenses with the depth of field preview tab. The capacitor replacement is an easy repair. I eventually traded my X-370 for an X-700 so I could change the focusing screen but bot are good. All of the 50/1.4 Minolta manual focus lenses are good.

    I'd at least run a test roll through it. Earlier this year, I taught a friend's 13 year old son how to use his Minolta X-370n and was generally pleased with the camera. The prints from Fujicolor 200 were sharp and well balanced.

    I wrote a whole big entry saying nothing that hasn't been said already. Anyway, it's a nice camera. I actually like mine better than my x-700, but the x-570 is my favorite. I didn't know they made a f1.4 - it must be a wonderful lens. Was there ever a bad Minolta brand prime lens? As long is it doesn't end up in a landfill, whatever you decide will be good.

    Yes it is, remove the bottom cover and there it is ready to swap. But, if you have to order and pay shipping on one single replacement 3v 100mfd (IIRC) miniature capacitor, it becomes not worth bothering with.

    Over the past couple of years, I've given 5 or 6 film camera kits (maybe one or two more) and a couple of darkroom kits to undergraduate college students. That helps to keep analogue alive and frees up space for me. Check with your local college/university photography/art department. Actually, check with the instructors if you can identify who they are. Bill Barber
