Minolta Dynax 40 35mm SLR Camera

Availability: In stock (1)

The Dynax 40 was introduced by Minolta in 2004 as a basic consumer level SLR for 35mm film. In tetraphobic countries it was sold as the Dynax 30. In other regions was also sold as the Maxxum 50 and the α-50, which doesn’t make finding one a confusing task in the slightest.

Although it was described as basic, the camera was packed with pre-programmed settings for portrait, landscape, night-portrait, macro and sports. Besides these comfort choices the photographer could also choose for aperture priority, shutter priority and a full manual mode, making it a remarkably versatile camera for beginners, enthusiasts and professionals alike.

Shutter speeds range from 30sec. to 1/2000sec. and the flash is synced at 1/90sec. The camera was equipped with a small pop-up flash besides the usual Minolta hot-shoe for larger flashes.

At one time, this was one of the smallest and lightest (335gr) full-spec SLR cameras available and it’s powered by two CR2 batteries, which is nice. It takes quite frankly great shots as well…

This one is in fantastic cosmetic and mechanical condition, fully working and tested with an autofocus 28-100mm f/3.5-5.6 lens in good optical condition. It also comes with original lens cap and original Minolta strap.
