Released in 1979, Minolta XG9 is a reliable and lightweight vintage camera with two exposure mode (auto-exposure, full manual exposure). The camera attached a Minolta MD 45mm f2 lens.
Compare with Minolta xg1, xg9 was improved a lots. The focus screen was replaced with the Acute-matte screen. Also, it improved light transmission and focusing ease. The camera now showed the aperture set on the lens through a periscope system, providing a full information viewfinder when set to auto-exposure mode. The camera also now came with a user-removable back.
This camera is in good work condition and super clean inside out. The viewfinder is bright and clean. It has no fogs, no fungus inside out and the film chamber is very clean. The camera is in good condition for its age. Only a few small scratches are around from normal use. Some glue under leatherette cover in the corner is dry. The light seals are weak but still works. No dings. Please see the pictures.
