Minolta SRT100


Minolta SR mount (MC/MD)


Good camera that have a nice and solid feel to it.
Very reliable and built like a tank.

This was a cheaper alternative to the SRT101 that was released in 1966.
Shutter speed up to 1/500s instead of 1/1000
Removed mirror lock and self timer.
Simpler viewfinder that don't show the selected shutter speed.

Light meter is made for a mercury battery and doesn't seems to work well with today's replacement that don't give out the exact voltage

It have a on, off switch for the light meter under the camera.
And it don't have a sleep mode so the light meter is always on until manually turned off.

Thumbs up:
All mechanical shutter
Build quality and feel

Thumbs down:
No self-timer
Light meter doesn't well work with today's batteries
