The Minolta SRT 101 is the very start of what was to be one of Minolta's greatest fully mechanical SLR lineups, whose models would stand the test of time. The SRT 101 was originally launched in 1966 with amazing light metering via its 'CLC' through-the lens contrast detecting light metering capabilities. The solid, incredibly sturdy metal frame is still in incredible shape today.

Minoltas are known for their simple, easy to use functionality - and this one is no different, offering the basics that would be needed. A 1/1000 shutter speed with no batteries needed to function, and a fantastic lens mount with affordable, but very well built and very high quality Minolta Rokkor lenses. The SRT 101 has an incredibly bright and clear viewfinder, making focusing a breeze. The model even offered depth of field preview back in 1966

The accompanying 35mm f/2.8 is a fast general purpose lens, with a useful focal length for portraits, landscapes, and anything in between.

Due to the age of the SRT series their light meters tend to be burnt out. Fortunately this is not too much of an issue as these cameras function fine without batteries. This mechanical reliability is one of the main advantages of the Minolta SRT101. To meter a scene before taking a picture just use an external light-meter or a light-meter app on your phone (we recommend myLightmeter), or alternatively the foolproof 'Sunny-16' rule.
