Part Needed

  1. Chaplain Jeff
    Hello,

    I just purchased a working model XE7 that I'm looking forward to enjoying when I return to the states in May.

    It has one issue: it is missing the plastic off of the film advance lever.

    Do any of you know of a source for this type of item? Seven years ago I was very involved in the Minolta Manual Focus group on Yahoo and there were several sources then. The group seems to be not as active - I will post this there as well - and so I'm wondering what avenues for acquiring parts are still out there.

    If you have one of these - or know of a source for this piece, please let me know.

    Thanks,

    Jeff M

    Good morning, Chaplain Jeff;

    The black plastic "cover" for an XE-7 film advance lever. I will watch the MinoltaManualFocus group also. There are a couple of camera repair shops around here that can also be checked. I do not think that we can get them from Konica-Minolta (Sony) any more. Most likely, it will be a used part, or perhaps an entire advance lever. Would that be OK?

    Enjoy; Ralph Javins

    Wow. You are an above and beyond friend Luke. I may have to drive up - or have you and the family come to VA Beach to drop it off. It would be awesome to spend a few days shooting and hanging out.
