The Minolta SR-T Series of cameras launched in 1966 was a huge step forward from the SR Series that had preceeded it. For the first time Minolta had released a camera with through the lens metering, but unlike its competitors it did this at full aperture. Where other manufacturers were struggling with systems where the photographer would have to stop the lens down to check the metering, the Minolta SR-T101 enabled metering to be conducted with the lens wide open. This meant that the meter reading in the viewfinder was always clear and bright, and that the photographic process could be more about inspiration, not perspiration.
The major specifications of the SRT200:
Single lens reflex camera with through-the-lens CLC (Contrast Light Compensator) meter coupled to shutter and film speed.
Meter sensitivity EV 3 to EV 17 at ASA 100.
Film speeds supported ASA 6-6400
Fully mechanical cloth focal plane shutter with speeds from 1-1/1000 sec plus B
Shutter speeds 1-1/60 sec with electronic flash
Oversized quick return mirror for no image cut-off even with supertelephoto lenses
Exposure control needle visible in viewfinder
Flash synchronisation (X and FP)
Automatic reset film counter
