Minolta X-500

Traduction de Sylvain Halgand

Minolta X-500 with the fabulous Motor Drive 1 (MD-1)! This motor drive can be used on most X series cameras, can fire up to 3.5 images/second! The user can choose between 3 settings: "S" for Single frame; "Lo" for Low (2 images/second) and "Hi" for High (3.5 images/second)! Rewinding is also motor-driven!
All of this require a good power supply: no less than eight AA batteries are needed, which considerably increase the weight...
On top of its motor drive capabilities, the MD-1 considerably enhances the handling of the camera: first of all, because of its very ergonomic vertical grip; then, thanks to its second shutter release located on the side of the winder, which makes vertical (portrait) picture taking a lot more easier!
