This video walks through the details of the Minolta SR-T 201 Film Camera. The featured camera was purchased in 1977. Your first impression of the camera would be the small size but heavier feel compared to today’s DSLR cameras. This camera contains more metal and less plastic than modern DSLR cameras.
In this video we’ll look at the various dials and controls as well as the film loading and film travel methods.
We’ll look inside the front to see the mirror that lifts out of the way when we push the shutter release. We’ll look at an MC Minolta Celtic 50mm, F 3.5, marco lens and an MC Minolta Celtic F 4.5, 200mm telephoto lens.
We’ll also review controls for depth-of-focus preview, delayed shutter release, flash hot shoe, ISO and shutter speed settings and battery controls. We’ll look at the viewfinder, the tripod mount, focal plane synchronization and lens interchangeability.
