The XG 1 was the second to appear in the XG series in 1979. It was basically a XG-E with a less informative finder display and a non-detachable back door. It was available in two versions in chrome finishing only and was an export model, not sold in Japan.

Body and features Edit
Besides the fixed back door, the XG 1 had a simplified viewfinder read out: The range between 1/15s and 1/2s was now represented by one LED. Further it lacked the memo holder and had just a DIN/ASA conversion scale instead.

Minolta XG-1(N). The lens attached to the camera is a Vivitar 28 mm F2.0. One of the sharpest lenses available for Minolta. The lens was manufactured by Kiron for Vivitar.

In early 1982 the camera got the new "rising sun" logo on the prism cover, and model designation now included a hyphen: The XG 1 became a XG-1. Later that year, the XG 1 was replaced by the XG-1(n) with a new body design with a plastic front grip like the XG-M. It has the 'Acute Matte' focusing screen and a red M light in the viewfinder when not in auto mode (and thus when the meter is not working). The XG-1(n) finally got the memo holder on the back door. Although the box, manual and other literature refer to this camera as XG-1(n), the camera itself is engraved with XG-1
