General Minolta XD5 Information

Minolta XD5 was the cheaper version of the XD series cameras. Some people say that it has several plastic parts which just look like metal parts. It has the same outer appearance as the XD7, except the missing viewfinder ocular shuttering lever. Both models offer the choice of two automatic exposure modes: shutterspeed preferred or aperture preferred. In shutter preferred mode an aperture scale is shown in the viewfinder instead of the meter's shutterspeed scale. But the XD5 shows does not show the actual selected speed and selected aperture in addition to that scale, as does the XD7. For new preselections of shutter speed or aperture the XD7 user can keep his eye on the viewfinder.

Exposure: automatically controlled shutter speed or automatic shutter preferred control of aperture and shutter speed

Metering: through-the-lens (TTL) measuring by a photo diode at the back of the pentaprism controls automatic exposure

Shutter speeds: 1 - 1/1000 sec. (metal lamellae shutter)

Films: 35mm film with speeds from 12 to 3200 ASA

Viewfinder: pentaprism viewfinder showing 94%

Lens: Minolta MD-Rokkor lenses (SR-bayonet lenses with additional lever for automatic aperture control)

 Of course nearly all SR-bayonet lenses can be used with the XD5, but the older SR-lenses and MC-lenses only without shutter preferred mode.

Camera House Price: £49.00

Looking after your camera

Use a Camera Bag

A camera bag does more than just protect the camera against scratches and dust: It keeps it safe from rain because many are waterproof on the outside.

Be Very Careful Around the LCD Screen and Camera Lens

Use only special equipment to clean your camera’s LCD screen and camera lens. Buy a special cleaning kit that includes liquid solutions, microfiber cloths and brushes that have been specially designed to clean your camera lens.

Never Leave Your Batteries in Your Camera for Too Long
Many camera batteries are now alkaline or lithium formats. If you keep your camera with the batteries inside of it in a moist area, then the batteries can get corrosive. So if you’re thinking about just putting your camera on the shelf for several months, do yourself a favor and remove them.

Turn Your Camera Off Prior to Doing Anything

Before you do anything to your camera, always keep in mind that it should be turned off first. No matter what it is—swapping lenses, changing memory cards or disconnecting or attaching cables—your camera should be turned off.

Cold and Wet Weather Can Wreak Havoc on Your Camera Body
Take your camera out only in a waterproof bag. If the weather’s unusually cold, just wrap your camera in a plastic bag that has silica desiccant packets for the reduction of moisture. It’s also a smart idea to have a soft towel with you to wipe off any moisture, just in case it should get on your camera.

Good Memory Card Care Is Good Camera Care

Only transport your memory cards inside of a protective caseMake sure the memory cards stay dust-free at all times. When removing memory cards, make sure you do so indoors or in non-dusty situations.
Make sure that you keep memory cards only in cool places. Never keep them in places where they may heat up, like dashboards or glove compartments.
Never place your memory cards close to magnetic sources. Examples of magnetic sources are things such as audio speakers, TV monitors and actual magnets.

Use a Filter to Protect Your Camera Lens

The lens of your camera is naturally fragile. As such, it’s susceptible to scratches, cracks, dents…you name it. A UV filter will not only will you give your lens a fighting chance, but you’ll also enhance the quality of your pictures.

Condensation Can Be Controlled

Condensation normally happens when you move your camera between different temperatures.
Allow your camera a chance to naturally get used to the hotter environment. Don’t place it inside a closed plastic bag when transporting it between different temperatures! Just let the camera sit in the humid temperature for a while, until condensation disappears.
If this still doesn’t get rid of all of it, you can utilize a soft cloth to wipe away any remaining moisture and marks left behind from the condensation.
