The Minolta SRT 200 is a classic mechanical 35mm film SLR with high quality all metal construction. The included lens is a fast and very sharp 50mm f/1.7 MD Rokkor-X. It features Minolta's CLC (contrast light compensator) light meter circuit for excellent exposure accuracy in normal shooting conditions.
The camera requires a 675 zinc air battery for its light meter (optional).
Condition notes The camera is in very good cosmetic condition (see photos) and excellent working order. We tested the camera and lens with film and the photos were sharp and correctly exposed. We also verified the camera's shutter has good accuracy for all speeds.
Type: 35mm single-lens reflexes with match-needle/manual exposure control
Lens mount: Minolta SLR bayonet, 54° rotating angle; coupling for full-aperture metering and automatic diaphragm control with "MD" or "MC" lenses (stop-down metering used for other lenses); button for depth-of-field preview and stop-down meterring. (Standard lenses: 50mm f/2 MD Rokkor-X for SR-T 200; 50mm f/1.7 or 50mm f/1.4 MD Rokkor-X or 58mm f/1.2 MC Rokkor-X for SR-T201and 202; seep.46 for specifications.)
Light metering: Full-aperture TTL type with overlapping readings taken by 2 CdS cells mounted on pentaprism and circuited to provide optimum exposure in both flat-and most contrast-lighted situations; stop-down metering also possible
Film-speed range: ASA 6 to 6400 set by selector on shutter-speed dial
Power: One 1.35v mercury cell, contained in camera base
Exposure Turning shutter-speed dial and/or lens aperture ring to align follower with meter control: needle visible in finder yields proper exposure according to metering system indication at the film speed set. Alignment may be disregarded for exposure adjustment or full manual control.
Metering and match-needle exposure range: EV 3 to EV 17 (e.g., 1/4 sec. at f/1.4 to 1/1000 at f/11) at ASA 100 with f/1.4 lens
Shutter: Horizontal-traverse mechanically controlled focal-plane type; speeds 1, 1/2, 1/4, 1/8, 1/15, 1/30, 1/60, 1/125, 1/250, 1/500, and 1/1000 sec. plus "bulb" setting Mirror: Oversize quick-return type (PO value: 138mm; finder image cutoff negligible even with 1600mm f/11 RF Rokkor-X extreme telephoto)
Finder: Eye-level pentaprism type showing 94% of 24 x 36mm film-frame area: Magnification: 0.86X with 50mm lens focused at infinity Mat-Fresnel-field focusing screen with centered focusing aid; 03mm microprism
spot in SR-T 200 and 201, 02.5mm horizontal split-image spot surrounded by 1.5mm microprism band on SR-T 202
Meter needle and circle-tipped follower for match-needle exposure control, coupled metering-range limits, and battery-check indication all silhouetted within the viewfield; shutter-speed scale and setting indicator visible below the frame in SR-T 201 and 202; lens aperture set on most Minolta lenses appears above the frame in frame in SR-T 202
Flash sync.: X delay; electronic flash synchronizes at 1/60 sec. and all slower settings including B through single PC terminal or hot shoe
Hot-shoe contact disconnected when a unit not inserted
Film advance: Lever type, single- or multiple-stroke, 150° winding angle after 20° unengaged movement to allow offsetting from body
Advancing-type exposure counter reset automatically when camera back is opened
Safe Load Signal indicates film alignment and advancing condition on SR-T 202 Multiple exposures possible with rewind button on SR-T 202
Self-timer: On SR-T 201 and 202 only; lever-type, approx. 10 sec. maximum delay
Other: 4-slot take-up spool; ASA/DIN conversion scale on back cover; conversion scale surrounded by memo holder on SR-T 201 and 202
Dimensions: 145 x 47.5 x 95mm (5-3/4 x 1-7/8 x 3-3/4 in.) without lens
