    “Don't have a review at this time. I was helping...”

    Written on: 23/10/2008

    Don't have a review at this time. I was helping friends move furniture out of an apartment, their family member was moving into assisted living, and different areas of the apartment had piles going to the dump, good will, etc. I noticed in the good will pile a tripod - still in the plastic wrapper. I asked if I could have it and was told sure. Then noticed a nylon bag, Tamrac. Asked if I could have that, sure. When I got home, inside was a Minolta X-700, with a 1262XXX serial number, Cosina… Read Full Review

    A super camera even 20 years later. By far the best I could recommend if you are looking for a manual camera where you still have to learn a few technical points to make a photo. The program settings are also great, simple to use and produce super results. Get one! Just be sure the metering system is good and you are sure to be pleased... unless you are lazy or a digital convert… Read Full Review

    “I have used the x700 and x570 for over twenty years....”

    Written on: 13/12/2006 by grady (1 review written)

    I have used the x700 and x570 for over twenty years. They have been reliable and produced good results, I found them to be as capable as the professional competion. The x700 system is as extensive and provide as many options and accessories as any produced during its run. Lenses from 15mm to 1000mm, numerous zooms and several speciality lens enhancement system. The full system allows you to just about anything photographically that you desire. I have gone to digital but still shot my Minoltas… Read Full Review

    “My wife gave me my Minolta X-700 set up for Christmas...”

    Written on: 09/08/2002 by JohnO. (1 review written)

    My wife gave me my Minolta X-700 set up for Christmas in 1986 figuring it might be a hobby I'd enjoy. Although it has always given great results the guy behind the lens didn't. It sat in the case much of the time in the late 90's. I went digital in the '99 and recently was given a project allowing for "only 35mm film".

    This X-700 is just as great a camera as it was back in '86 but thanks to digital I believe I have gotten better. I'll be taking my Minolta along with my digital from now… Read Full Review
