I have recently aquired two Minolta 35mm camera's from my family. One is a very nice XE-7 that was my grandpa's, the second is a SRT MC-II that was my fathers. My inquire in this forum regards the SRT MC-II mostly. As for the XE-7 it works great and I only need a few pointers about cleaning and care. The SRT, however, has a few issues. Most in the film advance, it seems that the advance mechanism doesn't always make it a full frame, sometimes it doesn't advance the frame at all (I must admit that when this does happen I get some really neat, though overexposed, superimposed shots). Another issue is, I noticed that the in-site speed indicator within the viewfinder is seriously off, resulting in over or under exposed pictures. Also, though I've tried a variety of different speed films in the it seems that no matter the speed, my results vary from grainy to seriously grainy. Is that just a characteristic of the camera? Does anyone on here happen to own, or have previously used, either of these cameras and can offer me some insight on them? Thanks truly!
