Minolta's SR-T series of SLRs was a huge success. The coupled match-needle meter visible thru a bright pentaprism viewfinder, paired with sturdy construction and reliable mechanics, were its characteristics. "SR-T" stood for "SR"-cameras (SR for "single-lens reflex") like its predecessors SR-2, SR-1, SR-3 and SR-7, but with TTL metering system (T for "TTL"="thru the lens"). With the first model of the series, the SR-T 101 of 1966 the SR lens bayonet was modified for "MC"-lenses which transmit the aperture value mechanically to the camera meter's match-needle.

  1. 1.0 1.1 1.2 1.3 Sync terminal
    FP, X: Two separate sync terminals for FP and X
    FP/X: One terminal for both with additional switch
    X: X terminal only
  2. 2.0 2.1 2.2 2.3 DOF preview
    locking: Push button locks when pressed and meter switches off, if lens with MC tab is used (no metering)
    non locking: Push button does not lock when pressed and meter does not switch off with MC lens (wrong metering)
    So in no case a stop down metering with a MC lens is possible.
  3. 3.0 3.1 3.2 3.3 Focusing screen
    MP: With microprism spot
    SI/MP: With split-image spot and microprism collar
  4. 4.0 4.1 4.2 4.3 Hot shoe
    No: Accessory shoe only
    X: Hot shoe for X sync only. Marked with red X
    FP/X: Hot shoe for X or FP sync, depending on switch setting. Not marked.
  5. 5.0 5.1 5.2 5.3 5.4 5.5 5.6 5.7 Body only: The full code no. of body only is the main code plus '-500'.
  6. 6.0 6.1 SR101s/505s: Top covers and code no. are known, but no production cameras. Since the code no. were later re-used for the SR-T 201/101b, it's very likely, that these models were never produced.
  7. SR-T 201 Ritz: Special model with the leatherette made out of the rubber focusing grip of the Rokkor-X lenses, sold through Ritz Camera stores exclusively.
  8. SR-T 100 (black): Sold through K-Mart
