Minolta Maxxum 5 35mm SLR Camera Body Description


Introducing the Maxxum 5 - the world's smallest and lightest 35mm AF SLR.* It's easy to pack, carry, and handle, so you can instantly react on your creative impulses anytime and anywhere. Plus, the Maxxum 5 houses a powerful array of high-performance features that will quickly satisfy beginner photographers and yet be valuable tools for photo hobbyists. If you want a true take-anywhere SLR, the little Maxxum 5 is the big winner. World's Smallest and Lightest 35mm AF SLR The Minolta Maxxum 5 measures only 5 x 3.42 x 2.38 inches and weighs in at 11.8 ounces without batteries. It's the AF SLR camera you'll want to (and be able to) take along wherever you go. Fastest Autofocusing in its Class The Maxxum 5's high-response autofocus system makes sure your once-in-a-lifetime moments will be razor sharp. This new-generation Maxxum features an improved high-power AF drive motor and high-speed microcomputer for quicker and more precise AF control. It tracks even fast action and random movements effortlessly, right up to the moment the shutter releases. 7-Point Autofocus System with Wide Focus Area The Maxxum 5 uses Minolta's new 7-point AF system. The focus sensors are laid out in a wide area to the "rule of thirds," so you have the creative flexibility of positioning your subject anywhere within the focus frame. The center crosshair sensor keeps the focus sharp regardless of vertical or horizontal subject contrast. Selected Focus Area Indication When using the wide focus frame, you'll always know exactly what your Maxxum 5 is focusing on. Minolta's LED-illuminated superimposition technology highlights the focus sensor being used. Selectable Focus Areas For creative image compositions, you may want to switch between the wide focus area and the local focus areas to single out an off-center subject without recomposing the shot. No problem with the Maxxum 5 - its local focus areas can be individually selected. Selectable Autofocus Modes For maxim.
