Minolta Hi-Matic 9 35mm Rangefinder film camera with 45mm f1.7 lens

Minolta Hi-matic 9 35mm Rangefinder film camera with 45mm f1.7 lens

All cameras come with a 6-month warranty. Please note that the light meter does not work. While the camera can still be used in manual mode, we have adjusted the price to reflect this defect.

This kit includes:

  • Minolta Hi-matic 9 rangefinder


The Minolta Hi-Matic 9 is a fully mechanical camera. This means it does not require batteries to operate the shutter. The 1x PX625 battery is only used to power the camera’s light meter and auto-modes.

This is one of the best-sold Japanese rangefinders in the 60s and early 70s. The Hi-matic 9 is built like a tank and boasts an incredible Rokkor 45mm f1.7 lens. This is the perfect camera for someone looking to enter the world of rangefinders on a smaller budget.

Due to the age of this camera and the nature of old lightmeters we can’t guarantee that it still works. This isn’t an issue as the camera will function perfectly without any batteries. To meter a scene before taking a picture simply use an external light-meter or a light-meter app on your phone (we recommend Lux or myLightmeter), alternatively you can use the foolproof sunny-16 rule.
