Minolta X-370 Video Manual

Minolta's answer to the Canon AE-1. This classic camera was originally sold in 1984 and was a hit for Minolta. This aperture priority camera is a good option for those just starting out in film photography and don't want to break the bank. 

This video covers

  • The camera features and how to use them 
    • Changing ISO 
    • Changing Aperture 
    • Changing Film Speed 
    • Understanding the meter 
  • How to remove the lens and place it back on 
  • How to load film 

I wouldn't pay more than 25$ for this camera and the lenses should cost about that much as well. Minolta lenses are great though and should get you some awesome images. 

Supplies:

LR-44 Batteries

Canon AE-1 Video Manual

The Canon AE-1 is one of the most classic vintage cameras you can buy. Readily available and easy to use it's a great choice for beginners. In this video I'll go over how to use the camera and it's components. 

I've purchased a bunch of Canon AE-1 cameras and they can be finicky. A lot of people complain about the squeaky shutter which you can repair by watching this video.  They also aren't the most durable of cameras and once the electronics go bad you're out of luck.
