Major Features of the Minolta SR-T 101
1, Rapid-Reading Through-the-Lens Exposure System
a) Exposure readings taken with lens at full aperture for rapid composing and focusing regardless of subject brightness.
b) "Follower type needles in viewfinder show correct exposure at a glance---at any combination of aperture and shutter speed
c) Shutter speed scale is visible in viewfinder but outside of "live" picture area.
d) Measures only the light that strikes the film, thus eliminating the need to compensate for changes in lens focal length or to compute exposure factors for filters, bellows or other lens attachments
2. Combines the Advantages of "Spot and Averaging" Exposure Reading Systems
a) Exclusive "CLC" Metering System (Contrast Light Compensator) maintains extreme accuracy regardless of lighting situation, even with high-contrast subjects.
b) Automatically corrects for changes in light intensity from one section of the picture area to another, thus providing an optimum overall reading.
c) Oversized, instant return mirror prevents image cut-off and incorrect exposure readings no matter how long the focal length of lens.
d) Unique positioning of CdS cells prevents incorrect readings due to light entering viewfinder.
3. World Renowned Rokkor Lenses
Superior resolving power resulting from the combination of rare earths, patented Achromatic coating and computer design.
4. Complete System of Lenses and Accessories forMaximum Versatility.
a) All Rokkor lenses designed for use with the Minolta SR-1, SR-3 and SR-7 can be used as stopped-down measuring with the Minolta SR-T 101
b) A variety of accessories are availableto handle nearly any photographic situation.
