Minolta XE-7

Traduction de PB

Created by Minolta in 1975, named XE in japan, XE-1 in Europe and XE-7 in USA and built like a "tank". It's a fully automatic camera
with aperture priority based on the automatic exposure system developped for the XM.
The metal vertical shutter was developped by Copal & Leitz and is more quiet than a cloth horizontal shutter. An other advantage is the
flash synchronisation till 1/90s. Aperture and Shutter speed are displayed in the viewfinder.
Leica and Minolta had a good relationship at that time and the XE model was also the base of the Leica R3.
