    a black X300? Either a rare model or its a new X300,maybe the X300s/X370.Beware of the Centon DF300,its a cheap copy!

    Nope, they made them in black as well Larry cause I used to have one. Lovely wee camera it was too. Not as common as the chrome model mind, but they definitely do exist.

    Well guys, I've had two rolls through the X300, a neg and a pos. Considering the season (low sun angle) I'm knocked out by the metering! Wherever I presumed that compensation would be necessary because of contrast, the camera proved me wrong. metering is spot on even in very difficult conditions, and dare I say it - seemingly more consistently accurate than my canon 50E. If I knew how to post a pic, I would. Picture quality is outstanding, but I expect that from Minolta primes. Now how about that. And yes, it is a genuine Black Minolta X300, not a Chinese copy.

    Well done Arri! I used to have an X300 and loved it, only thing missing is a DOF preview and it's be prefect!
    And yes that 50mm lens is a corker!
