I do love manual focus, I like manual! with auto.. it's harder to achive exactly what you want.
It's a personal thing. Depends on how and what you shoot. I've used my flash maybe a half dozen times in almost forty years. Others use flash all the time and couldn't get by without it.Quote:
Flash, Should I get one?
BTW, the Minolta SRTs are great cameras. I still shoot the first one I bought in 1968!
Also, a fellow named John Titterington (email: JTCamera@aol.com) is a great repair tech -- in case your meter gets stuck or the shutter bearings dry out. He's a whiz with SRTs! Very reasonable prices, too.
The thing I like about the SRT and other cameras of this era is the match needle exposure system. You can see exactly what changing the exposure values will do. It's a great camera to learn on.
Good solid camera, especially nice if you wear glasses.
I had an SRT200 with 45/2 back in the late 1970s, and just bought another one from John. It is OUTSTANDING.
The 45/2 is my favorite car show lens, quick focus and very sharp.
