The Minolta XG-M has aperture-priority automatic exposure control for greatest creative control and ease of use. You can also set the exposure manually, with or without reference to the camera's metering system. The aperture selected and LED shutter-speed setting are clearly displayed in the XG-M's total information viewfinder whose acute matte screen makes viewing brighter and focusing easier and more accurate. Electromagnetic shutter release, unique "touch-switch" metering and action grip are among the many other features of this fine camera.
Motorized film advance is available in two ways: the grip-type Motor Drive 1 for exposures up to 3.5 frames per second and the compact Auto Winder G for single/continuous film advance up to 2 frames per second.
Minolta's X-series Auto Electroflashes electronically switch the XG-M's shutter over for strobe exposures when charged and signal flash-ready in the finder; the 320X and 200X also enable continuous-sequence flash with the motors. Besides MD lenses, your XG-M uses virtually all interchangeable Minolta manual focus lenses.
