I've been attempting to sell this camera on Astromart for a very long time, and $5 from everyone who has inquired about it, would alone set me up on a private island getaway, so I decided a general warning was in order - AVOID THIS CAMERA.

If you're not so easily put off, then consider the following: this Minolta XG-1 35mm camera comes w/ a Minolta 50mm f/1.7 standard lens - both body and lens are from a N.O.S. photo store inventory cache. Besides some time spent sitting on a display shelf a few years ago, it has never been used. It is virtually new, except for an absent box/manual - however, the plastic protective strip is still stuck to the bottom of the body. The camera can be used in either a full-auto exposure mode, or as a completely manual camera. Its shutter is electronic, which means the battery will drain when used in the "B" setting for astrophotography. I'm reducing the price to $95,including FREE Priority Mail Shipping w/in CONUS!

Nevertheless, try to disregard the fact that this camera, in this condition, at this price, is hard to pass up . . . even should you need it or want it, PLEASE TRY TO AVOID IT, and if necessary gain support for your decision with the knowledge that you will join the swelling ranks of your fellow Astromarters who have acted similarly!

However, should you weaken, PayPal or MO is accepted in payment, however buyer pays the 3% fee for PayPal usage.
