📜 Description: the Minolta XG1 is an easy-to-use and a well-built 35mm camera that was manufactured between 1977 and 1984. It's a great gateway to Minolta's addictive Rokkor lenses and a very popular manual-focus, aperture priority camera. That means that you're in charge of focusing and choosing the aperture setting while the camera automatically chooses the shutter speed accordingly.

🔖 Condition: Very good. There is no haze, no fungus in the lens. Very small marks from normal use on the body. Clear viewfinder. Please check the camera pictures carefully and reach out if you have questions or concerns.

Frequently Asked Questions

The Analog Box

To reduce friction and offer you a smooth experience, we include everything you need to start shooting as soon as you receive your box. Inside you will find:

  • 1 analog camera (paired with a lens for SRL cameras) revised by our team of experts
  • 3x 35mm film rolls (you can choose from 2 different film packs of 3)
  • 1 "How-To" guide written by us to help you dive into analog photography
  • 1 solid camera strap
  • 1 fresh battery for your camera

A film format basically represents the size of the film. The most popular film formats are 35mm, medium format (120/220), or large format (4x5, 8x10). For now, we only sell 35mm cameras (compact, rangefinder and SLR ones) but are considering extending our offering to other formats in the future.

From flea markets to collectors, passing by friends and private sellers, we carefully handpick our cameras from different sources. We prefer to select used vintage cameras to give them a second life, although we sometimes sell new cameras that come in their original box.

We take great pride in ensuring that every camera and lens we offer has undergone meticulous revision and repair by our team of expert technicians. Our dedicated professionals possess a wealth of knowledge and experience in the field, allowing them to carefully inspect, evaluate, and repair each camera to guarantee they’re in excellent working condition when they land in your hands.

With our commitment to quality and expertise, you can trust that the camera you purchase from us has been carefully revised, and repaired to provide you with a reliable and enjoyable shooting experience.

Several factors are considered when calculating our prices to ensure a fair and competitive offering:

  • Market Price: We assess the current market value of the camera and lens models, taking into consideration factors such as demand, availability, and overall market trends. This helps us establish a price that aligns with the prevailing market conditions.
  • Camera Condition and Revisions: The price reflects the cost of revising and repairing the cameras and lenses to ensure they are in excellent working condition. We invest in thorough inspections and any necessary repairs to provide you with cameras that function optimally.
  • Additional Accessories: The Analog Box includes additional accessories so you can start shooting as you soon as you receive the box. The price considers the value of the film rolls, the strap and the guide that contribute to the overall package.
  • Brand and Model Reputation: The reputation and desirability of the camera brand and model also influence the pricing. Cameras from renowned brands or those known for their exceptional features or craftsmanship may have a higher price point due to their perceived value.
  • Rarity and Collectibility: If a camera is rare or has collectible value due to its age, limited production, or historical significance, it may be priced accordingly to reflect its unique attributes and desirability among collectors.
  • Customer Value: We strive to offer competitive pricing while ensuring customers receive a fair value for their investment.

By considering these factors, we establish a fair price that ultimately provides our customers with a comprehensive and satisfying package.

Film packs

Both packs offer 3 film rolls but there are 2 main differences to consider when choosing a pack.

1. The inclusion of a B&W film in the pack

The Classic Film Pack offers 2 Color film rolls and 1 Black and White one, whereas the Sunbath Film Pack only offers color ones.

2. The development process of the film

C-41 film development is a widely adopted and popular process for developing color-negative films nowadays. With most commercial labs and even some local camera stores devoting at least one machine to this development process, finding a place to get the rolls from the Classic Film Pack developed is fairly easy.

ECN-2 film on the other hand requires a specific development process that differs from the more common C-41 one and that is only available in select laboratories. Because it requires precise temperature control, precise timing, and expertise in handling the film, finding labs that offer ECN-2 film processing can be challenging. Although ECN-2 has been getting more and more traction lately, only a limited number of specialized labs are equipped to handle this unique development process. Rest assured though, if you pick the Sunbath Film Pack, you can directly send your rolls back to Sunbath or click here for a list of labs around the world that process ECN-2 film.

Compared to reflex cameras where the ISO setting is manually set by the camera operator, compact cameras automatically detect the ISO based on a code (called DX) located on the film canister's base. The ISO information is then used by the camera's exposure metering system to determine the appropriate exposure settings for the film.

Sunbath does not yet encode a DX code on their film canisters, which makes this film pack not suitable for compact cameras.
