PRODUCT DETAILS

Recognising that there was a market for a less expensive auto-exposure camera than the XG7, in 1978 Minolta released the XG1 onto the market. It differs from the XG7 by having a less informative viewfinder, in that when the shutter speed falls between 1/30th second and 1 second, a single led is activated, which indicates 1/2 second to 1/15th second. Additionally, it is missing the rear film memo holder.

As with the XG7, it is quite a capable and lightweight body, and made an excellent camera for a less serious photographer who was interested in auto-exposure, while still retaining the capability for motorised film advance and full manual exposure.
