    First post! Minolta SRT 303 MLU

    Howdy,

    This is my first post, so please be nice!

    Can anyone tell me the best and most sure fire method to tell (or to tell someone else) whether a SRT 303 has Mirror lock up? I have been looking at one for sale online, but the description is pretty vague and I am not sure whether the seller would really know what to look for (& I have never actually seen one in the flesh!)

    Thanks

    Have a look here: http://www.rokkorfiles.com/SRT%20Series.htm

    I think the SRT 303 was more commonly sold as the SRT 102.

    Do you have a picture or a link to the one you are interested in?

    Have a look at this picture: http://farm1.static.flickr.com/40/83...65e874ad70.jpg

    The little lever to the left of the lens and slightly above centre is the mirror lock up. Not to be confused with the large button near the bottom which is the depth of field preview.

    I'm pretty sure its not a 303b, which definitely doesn't have MLU. According to Rokker, the first 303 was also called a 102 or just a super, depending on market. But it also states that MLU was dropped during the production run

    You're right hoffy, I'd got myself confused and re-reading the linked website saw the error of my ways!

    From looking at the picture in the ebay link, I would say that it has. But I wouldn't take my word for it.

    Have you asked the seller?

    This is the page from the SRT 101 manual documenting mirror lock up: http://www.urmonas.net/manuals/srt101/srt101-34.jpg

    The camera you are looking at seems to have the same control.

    The 303 in the picture DOES have mirror lock up.
    Heavily sedated for your protection.

    Yeah, just read this. John is right. It has it. Small dial on the passenger side of the camera body (sorry, I sell auto parts) behind the lens mount.
    Thank you.

    Chris,

    Would that be right hand drive or left? I have several cameras that wind "upside down and backwards" and two that wind sideways.:o

    That's the driver's side where I come from!.... and where the original poster comes from.
