So you want to try out a film camera ? this is the Minolta X370 a solid little SLR. I put fresh batteries in it and shutter releases as it should, film winder is manual and works. I did place the longer lens on it and the shutter /mirror was stopped in the up position. To be honest I think it was just too dark and it was stuck in a long exposure mode but truth in advertising - it did stick. A slight tap on the rear curtain released it. I think it definitely needs cleaning - as do both lenses. A Nifty 50 mm lens F1.7 and a 70-210 lens macro The Camera is solid, lenses are metal. These will last a while, like a little brick . I am not guaranteeing but it did work while here with the batteries as stated with the exception of the use of the longer lens the one time. They can have a problem with rear shutter sticking but there a bajillion videos online to help you . There are also manuals for the camera readily available. Its a nice entry level , that if nothing else will get you familiar with a SLR. to be honest I bought it in a box lot because I like having older cameras as shelf sitters, but when I found out it worked wanted to find it a home.
Thinking with some love and attention it will go on to live a 2nd life.
