Minolta Dynax 9
It is a successor to the 9xi and 800si. The camera is robust, with rubberized and weatherproof controls. Later versions include the rare Dynax 9Ti with a titanium body. The controls are similar to those of the 600si.
The camera has a focal plane shutter running from 30s - 1/12000s, with flash synch at 1/300s. There is a built-in flash.
