Good Points
Easy to use, good pics, very good program when used with flash.

Bad Points
Shutter jam, I estimate no more than 400 rolls of film. Not economic to repair.

General Comments
I loved the camera, but after I bought it I heard the shutters gave trouble and my X700 would eventually go the same way. I bought it new in 1993. I had it in Nepal, Pakistan, Iran and all over and it served me faithfully until 6 weeks ago at my sisters wedding the shutter jammed. I have several other troublesome Minolta bodies but as they were second hand I assumed that they had not been cared for!! Hence I was very disappointed as I had taken good care of the X700.

Unfortunately I cannot recommend Minolta as a reliable camera.
