    will xe-7 lenses work on srt-101 body

    bought minolta xe-7 and a couple hours after second roll camera will not work on automatic. push button and shutter goes down, minute later goes back up. batteries are new. can get srt-101 body in morning and use while xe-7 gets repaired. Anyone know if the xe-7 lenses will work on srt-101? thanks for any help. On/off switch doesn't click when going from one to the other and meter doesn't register at all.

    The SRT cameras used lenses with Minolta's "MC" mount. When automation started being built into camera bodies, Minolta came out with the "MD" mount. For all practical purposes, MC and MD mount lenses are interchangeable. Any MD lens will work properly on an SRT. Any MC lens will work on a later camera with the MD mount except that Auto mode won't function, but it will work fine in Manual mode.

    Good morning;

    Just as a minor clarification on Mike's comment about a Minolta 35mm SLR camera with an "Auto mode:" On the camera itself, this "Auto mode" might be represented with the letter "P" for "Program" mode. This came out on the X-700 and was found on very few Minolta manual focus cameras. It is a truly "Automatic Point and Shoot" mode for exposure with only manual focusing being required. This is the only mode where the MD lenses are required for that mode to work, but there is a way to work around even that.

    A possible point of confusion exists between the Minolta Rangefinder and the Minolta SLR cameras, because Minolta did use the "A" designation for "Automatic" mode on the Minolta Hi-Matic 9 where there is an "A" setting for the lens aperture control ring, and an "A" setting for the shutter speed control ring. If you use just one of them, it will give you either an aperture priority mode or a shutter speed priority mode, depending on which you have chosen. If you set the aperture ring to "A," you get to choose the shutter speed, "shutter priority," and the Hi-Matic 9 would set the aperture for you automatically according to what the light meter wanted.

    The interesting part is what happens when you set "both" the aperture ring and the shutter speed ring to "A." Then the Hi-Matic 9 does work in what Minolta called an "Automatic" mode according to a built-in program in the camera. Today we would call this a "Program" mode.

    Later Minolta provided further possible confusion because there is both an "A" and a "P" on the shutter speed dial on the Minolta X-700. The "A" is for "Aperture" priority mode.

    When they ask you; "How many Mega Pixels you got in your camera?"
    just tell them; "I use activated silver bromide crystals tor my image storage media."

    Something odd about my SRT101b in that a Kiron 2X match mate converter wont work with it, but it works perfectly on my X-700.

    Thanks, Ralph, for clarifying the nomenclature I screwed up in my post. I was too careless and casual.
