Camera Repair Tutorials


Minolta Manual Focus Lens Disassembly and Cleaning Tutorials

These tutorials originally appeared on a now-defunct Japanese website. A German website dedicated to the Minolta manual focus system had copied the pages and kept them online after the original Japanese site closed up, but the tutorials were written in Japanese.

We've translated them into English and are posting them here so that they'll be available to English-speaking users, and to keep them available if the German site ever goes dark. You can see the original Japanese versions on the Minolta SR Site.
