    I just received a Minolta XG1 camera.
    The battery compartment is empty, I need to know what battery model is
    required .
    Is battery required to fire the curtain ?

    The film advance crank looks non operating, I wonder if only new
    battery are required, or if this is a common defect

    What is the function of the slotted head under the film advance
    sproket, Is it for a motor ?

    Thanks in advance

    This camera uses 2 s76 silver oxide batteries.

    As I recall, this camera does require batteries to operate the
    I have a pdf manual for this camera on my website. Go to and click on Minolta.

    This is a free download..
