The XG-A was one of several MINOLTA XG series auto exposure cameras launched and sold between 1977 and 1984. The XG-A was introduced in 1982 and was the last model of the MINOLTA XG series cameras. The XG-A was marketed as an affordable smaller bodied auto SLR camera with many of the technological advances in electronics of the time. This included the ability to mount the popular MINOLTA AUTO WINDER G. Other features included a fail-safe electronic exposure system, solid-state information viewfinder, easy handling controls and the ability to take on a broad range of accessories like all X-Series Auto Electroflashes and, the full range of MINOLTA lenses.
