If you want a truly exceptional pro camera, don't pass this one up! If you want an average one, there are many on ebay to choose from. Pay very little more and get the best!
This camera is arguably one of the finest cameras ever made. I have extensive experience with Maxxum equipment and shoot with two 9xi's myself. This is one of the finest examples of this camera you will find.
Why buy a cheaper plastic camera that limits your abilities when you can have a metal framed camera with a polycarbonate shell that's possibilities are endless. This camera can function as easily as pushing the shutter button. It will set all exposure and focusing automatically. Or take it to the working professional level which it was designed for. It will impress you at every step.
Here are a few of the camera's highlights:
1/12,000 of a second shutter speed down to bulb
Exposure modes: full program, aperture preferred, shutter preferred, full manual. Modes can be shifted by adjustment wheels without ever looking away from the viewfinder.
Focusing: 5 selectable areas. 14 honeycomb pattern
Flash sync: up to 1/300 sec.
Motor drive: 3 settings: 4.5 fps, 2 fps or single shot
Metal frame, poly carbonate shell with dust seals.
Accepts program cards
Full information viewfinder: shutter speeds, aperture setting, focusing area, flash on/ready, full manual control display with metering etc. Lights up in darkness
Panoramic display in viewfinder
Programmable function button
Auto exposure bracketing
It is an absolutely amazing machine!
This camera is in MINT/Almost New condition! The hand grip still looks close to new! It has seen very little use. Every function works as new. The displays are bright and clear. The film chamber looks excellent.
There may be a couple of very light cosmetic markings on the shell (I can't see any but I list this just in case). It is very hard to tell from new.
The camera will come with a strap, manual, working battery and a flash shoe cover. It's ready to go!
You will not be disappointed in any way with this camera!
Please feel free to email with any questions. I would also be happy to provide a contact number. I work very hard to provide my customers with the best Maxxum equipment available!
Why buy a new Maxxum 7 or 9? This camera has metal construction and a better shutter that the 7. It is not much different from the new 9 at less than half the price!
