The Minolta Maxxum is an advanced 35mm SLR camera released in 1993. This camera does a fine job of including a large number of advanced features in a manner that is intuitive and not distracting. It's an equally good choice for an experienced photographer or ambitious beginner looking for a sturdy, robust, high-spec film camera. On the other hand, some people might find it a bit heavy for their taste (we measured the camera and lens as 866 grams together). 

This camera was one of the top picks in the 1994 Popular Photoraphy Buyers Guide (earning straight '5 starts' for 'capability', 'convenience', 'features', and 'overall'). Read the review here.

This camera requires a 2CR5 battery (available as an option). 

Condition notes
The camera and the included Minolta Maxxum AF Zoom 35-70 1:4 lens are in very good cosmetic condition (see photos). The most noteworthy cosmetic flaws: 1) some cracking on the rubber grip (common with 1980s and 1990s Minoltas) and 2) a small mark on the top of the viewfinder display (doesn't affect photos). All features are working correctly and the shutter is firing with good accuracy at all speeds (verified with a shutter analyzer). In addition, we tested the camera and lens with an exposure tester, its light metering and autoexposure accuracy are excellent. It was tested with film installed but the film was not processed.
