Like a pair of favourite slippers, the X-700 has been around a long time. Program mode is unusual in a camera of this vintage, but Minolta have always been at the forefront (they introduced autofocus). When compared with their current range of autofocus offerings, the X-700 doesn't look very good value but the durability is superb.
