Minolta SR-T 201

Discussion in 'Photography' started by Jimmy Volleyball, Dec 26, 2012.

  1. Does anyone know if film for the Minolta SR-T 201 is still available
    and if so, would there be entities that develop it?

    Thanks

    Yup! the answer to both parts of your question is "Yes".

    You have a 35mm SLR, color and B&W film is readily available. There are
    several dedicated processing labs, as well as Costco, Walmart, &
    Walgreens. It all depends on what you are trying to achieve. You could
    also consider entering the world of establishing your own wet darkroom.

    In the meanwhile, I suggest conducting a local search for labs. My
    first stop would be a local bricks & mortar photo/camera store. They
    should have all the local information and expertise you need.

    There are also full service labs which will add shipping costs. To find
    those, Google is your friend, I suggest a search for "35mm film
    processing" that should give you a multitude of services to evaluate.

    That would be your standard 35mm film. Last time I checked, it was still
    available. You should be able to find a processor with a simple online
    search if there is nowhere locally.

    BTW, don't get rid of the lenses. My ultimate solution was a panasonic G3
    and an adapter to use my old Minolta lenses - pretty damned good glass
    compared to what's available nowadays.

    Hey, thanks to you both. I bought this thing while in Vietnam in 1967
    and we just ran across it in a major house, actually barn, cleaning
    and I thought it was totally useless after discovering that Minolta
    had given up on the photography business. I'm a long way from a
    photography expert although I have been highly trained in the use of
    the Kodak Brownie. I think.

    You are probably going to have to replace the batteries. An online
    check, or a visit to a reputable local camera store should solve that
    problem.
    You should compare notes with Alan Browne, He uses a Sony DSLR and
    legacy Minolta lenses. He might have a Minolta SLR buried somewhere.

    Now, inquiring minds want to know, just how much photography did you do in Nam?

    I doubt I took even a whole roll of film. I bought the camera for my
    Mother and sent it home Christmas. It was among some of her things we
    packed up when she died.
