The Minolta Dynax 7 had multi-mode metering, memorized the settings of the last 5 films shot, had shutter speeds up to 1/8000th of a second, allowed customization of just about every feature (so if you want your exposure counter to count down rather than up, and for the film leader to be left out of the cassette after rewind, you are in luck!)

All this is set via readable menu items selected on a control panel hidden beneath a magnetically latched metal hinged door. The  Minolta Dynax 7 supports in-lens motors, has 9 AF points in the viewfinder – the central one being a highly accurate ‘double cross’ and (possibly unique for a film SLR) featured a rear display that makes setting the custom functions a doddle and still fools people to this day into thinking it is a DSLR.

The Minolta Dynax 7 was not the top of the pile, that position was taken by Minolta’s last bid to produce a professional film camera, released a few years before, which was the Dynax 9. The 9 is a titanic beast, but it never included quite as much technology and features as Minolta packed into the 7, and had to be retrofitted to use lenses with built in motors (SSM in Minolta’s nomenclature).
