Minolta SRT 200
Hey guys, here’s a SLR I picked up from a thrift store. A Minolta SRT 200. I don’t know much about Minolta in general, but the lens it came with is ok, not as sharp as my other ones but good enough I think. This camera has an odd shutter release that pulls a shutter thing (?) over when cocked and releases it when shot. It’s hard to explain but because of that, it feels really different when shooting. My friend says it makes the camera sound cheap, but I think it gives it its own charm.
Also this camera has some pretty good vignetting, just look at the first photo.
I ran some Fuji Superia and some Ilford B&W and here’s what I got.
Overall it’s a fun camera to use when I’m bored using my Canonet or DSLR.
