The Minolta X-300 is a 35mm manual focus SLR based on the MD mount, and which was produced between 1984 and 1990. The X-300 was also marketed as the X-370 in the U.S. and Canada.
A year after Minolta released the X-500, they introduced the X-300 to the photographic market. It was a less-expensive alternative to the X-500 thanks to fewer features. The body of the X-300 is nearly identical to that of the X-500. The only change, other than the nameplate, is that the shutter speed dial is now covered, only showing one speed at a time.
