Minolta XE-5 35mm camera is one of the best-specced machines of its day. The XE was the first electronically controlled Minolta SLR that was targeted for advanced amateurs. The most interesting part of the the XE heritage is that it is the first SLR that Minolta designed and produced in association with Leitz, the maker of Leica cameras. The XE-5 carries on most of these features. Leica, guys!!!

The camera body features an electronically controlled single-lens reflex that allows you to choose to work with meter assistance, or to use the aperture-priority automatic exposure setting. This includes complete aperture TTL metering, giving you the flexibility to work as needed in any given condition. The easy to read viewfinder has a center split-image and it is brightly displays meter readings regardless of mode.

The exposure-meter hand shows you the recommended shutter speed in manual mode. This Minolta is a reliable classic film camera for those interested in retro and slow photography, and it still performs well, taking wonderfully stylish and atmospheric 35mm pictures.

If you are a film photography enthusiast and looking to move over to an SLR , this kit is everything! A good looking camera too.
