The Minolta SR-T series is less well known than other Minolta 35mm cameras but is no less capable. Minolta first introduced the SR-T series in 1966 with the 101 and various models were in production until 1981. The SR-T201 was introduced in 1975 and is a fully mechanical camera and therefore the battery is for metering only. The camera has shutter speeds up to 1/1000th of a second, plus Bulb, and an ASA range of 6-6400. The camera also features a depth of field preview button, a hot shoe, self-timer, and a PC socket with flash sync at 1/60th of a second. As an added bonus the selected shutter speed is visible in the viewfinder.
The metering system is of the match-needle variety where the goal is to match up the hoop over the needle by adjusting the shutter speed and aperture. What makes the meter special is Minolta’s through-the-lens Contrast Light Compensator system. The CLC meter consists of two photocells in series to help give accurate exposure in high contrast scenes. In practice, I find that this system gives better exposure than both my Canon AE-1 Program and my Pentax K1000.
