This is Minolta's best mass market manual focus camera, ever. A testament to its lasting and great design, it was introduced in early 1981 and was in continuous production until the beginning of 2001. It uses all of the Minolta manual focus lenses made since the 1960s, although you'll have better luck in program mode if you stick to the newest MD lenses. It has a program and aperture-preferred automation modes. Manual mode only indicates the suggested shutter speed in the finder; you have to take your eye away from the finder to see what you've actually set. It weighs 17.5oz (520 g) unlike amateur cameras like the $1,000 Nikon F100, the Minolta X-700 has a stainless steel lens mount. "MPS" on the front stands for "Minolta Program System," which was hot stuff when Program automation cameras were novel in 1985. Today it just means it has program mode, like every other camera. It has a cloth horizontal focal plane shutter. It runs on two S76 button cells or #357 in Eveready Energizer.
