Jesus Mary & Joseph I thought you were joking about suspending them from threads, until you showed the setup. That is ridiculous! (As in ridiculously good.) Tuco, you are surely the world's most dedicated Hassie pornographer. Definitely submit that to the flickr camera porn pool if you haven't already.

Porn dump. I guess this is what they call brand loyalty.
(Edit: my K-3 is on its way)


The image was taken with an Olympus E-P2 and a Body Cap Lens. So don't pixel peep, pervert.

The 2 MX I now use : the black one is loaded with black & white film, the silver one for colour.
Note that the 50mm on the silver MX is full of fungus, and was only used for the photo

What a beauty! Tell us more about the find. Did they say why they never used this camera? I love these SRT Minoltas because they are fully manual.

Salut arnold,

It's been used ... light minor, normal wear. I have not even dusted it off yet ... I love these SRT's, too ... One of my first cameras along with a K1000 ...

Also bought a second one on the same day, but this was not as "good" of a deal ... a "knee-jerk" reaction, since it was so cheap; just could not resist and it was on French eBay maybe six or seven minutes since it was an immediate buy ... probably will resell/trade it later on, or maybe not ... it's in much, much rougher shape unfortunately ... J (and "oui" I have been going completely nuts lately ... )

Loving the SRT's. I just found myself an SRT-101 as well, a couple weeks ago at an antique mall with a 50/1.7 Rokkor-X attached. Can't argue with the Lens lineups of Minolta & Rokkor. I'm still perplexed by the viewfinder light meter though.

  • Turn switch at bottom of camera to the "on" position
  • Adjust aperture ring and/or shutter speed dial to match needle and circle
  • Take picture
The match needle system was pretty much the norm for hand-held meters of the time and would have been familiar to most users new to TTL on-camera metering. Remember to turn switch at bottom of camera to "off" position at end of session. The only other thing is to invest in some sort of mercury battery solution. The SRT 101 meter is voltage dependent. I use the C.R.I.S. adapter in my SRT 101 and also in my Singlex TLS.

^thanks for the info. I didn't know it was common. I shouldn't have said 'perplexed.' I understand the functioning of it after downloading the manual. I guess I was spoiled with the MX's simple 5 LED light meter display. The viewfinder on that SRT-101 sure is big and bright though.

As many of you know, my hobby is scanning vintage photography ads... and collecting some of the items advertised. So with everyone's indulgence, I'll be posting a series of Ad - Camera - Photo with the camera sets... Anyone is welcome to join, I have a ton of ads in my flickr Collection: Print: Photographica (mostly)






Foma 100 that I took:

An exploded view of my 500C/M. It took hours to suspend the parts by threads and align them. I cloned them out in post






Great pic and set up!

Cheers.

Cool! You will need special skinny finger powers to adjust the ISO/ASA, but aside from that all should be easy.

One of my all time favorite cameras.
If the ISO dial is working correctly, forget about the exposure compensation and just use the ISO to compensate. I found it easier, quicker, and you get 1/3 stops.
I found the shutter button felt just slightly too short, so a soft release button really improved it.

My K2,
