    Minolta SRT200

    I have recently picked up a Minolta SRT200 camera, Not even sure of there year. IT has a 45MM 1:2 lense on it. I was just given the camera, didn't come with any lense

    My questions are:

    Has anyone else used these cameras, and if so, How good are they?

    2: Were can I get some lenses?

    3. Do I have to buy a special type of film for it?

    Thanks

    I shot with the SRT series for years, in fact my first cameras that I worked with were SRT 100 and an SRT 200...I still have several lenses that work on this body all the way from 28mm to 200mm that I could be talked out of cheap, as far as film any 35mm film will work in it, the 45mm lens that you say is on it, is a great lens to start learning with..if you have the SRT and a lens, pick up some film and start taking pictures, and keep hanging out here, you will learn real quick.

    I have three SRTs (and a 4th that was damaged beyond repair, but that's another story. )

    They are great, old cameras. Special film? No, they're 35mm. Lenses? All over Ebay, KEH, used camera shops. You need Minolta MC or MD mount. As cheap as they are, you might as well get Minolta lenses IMO.

    The big downside is that the proper batteries for these cameras are no longer available, but there are modern substitutes, assuming the meter even works. However, the camera works without a battery - just no meter.

    It's a light meter. To measure the light.
    Using film since before it was hip.

    The best thing about minolta manual focus SLR bodies is that you can so easily use all that fine Minolta glass with 'em. Every camera repair guy I've ever talked to raves about the Minolta SRT line...I honestly don't know why. I do love the glass though. Minolta manual focus lenses are some of the most under rated lenses I can think of.

    Many folks over look the 45mm f/2 but, it is incredibly sharp, compact and light weight. Load with film and enjoy.
