A cult classic of film photography, the Minolta Maxxum 7000 is the world's first autofocus SLR. It is called Dynax outside the USA, and Maxxum 7000 AF in Europe; it's all the same camera.
There were some earlier attempts at autofocus SLRs prior to the Maxxum 7000 like the Nikon F3AF, but they were kludges with AF systems built into lenses instead of the camera.
The Maxxum 7000 has center-weighted metering, a body-integral AF system, and full digital computer control. The AF motor is in the camera and drives the lens through a screwdriver connection poking out of the lens mount.
The MAXXUM 7000 has a life-sensing touch switch: just touch it and the meter wakes up without needing any pressure on the button. Press a little more to turn on and lock AF and press the rest of the way to shoot. A delight to shoot with easy to read and accurate metering. Has fresh interior battery installed and uses four AAA batteries for the meter, autofocus, and shutter.
In fair condition, has broken light meter casing but still works just fine, has had all light seals replaced, comes with a roll of our 100iso Fuji Superia 35mm expired colour film

Due to the nature of vintage items being used, we cannot guarantee that any item will be in perfect working condition. Oftentimes vintage items need a bit more creativity to operate than a brand new item and can have unique quirks like a stiff button, or wiggly latch. We do our best to thoroughly test and describe the condition of every item we sell.
Returns will be handled on a case by case basis.
