    Minolta AF-Sv : Anyone used this camera before?

    hey all,


    well, freshly back from my weekly trolling of the local thrift shops (goodwill, salvation army and amvets), I arrived home with a little Minolta AF-Sv, put some new batteries in is(AA's), and it fired right up.
    I tried finding some info on it on the good ol' web, but no luck. The only reason as to why I got it, rather than save my $3.95 was because it had a 35mm 2.8 lens on it. It also has a film speed dial that goes from 25-1000asa.

    So basically, does anyone have any thoughts on the camera? Thankfully everthing works, including the little "voice" that tells you to use the flash, or "check distance".

    I ran a quick roll through the camera yesterday and today, and since I have another 2 weeks until school is back(my folks won't allow me to develop film at home ), I would like to illicit your help, if you can lend any, to help me understand my new find.


    Thanks

    Dan

    I didn't recognize the model # but when you mentioned the "little voice" it came back. It 's the Minolta talker, and the reason I started wearing tinfoil hats. Beyond that, I haven't the foggiest.
    Heavily sedated for your protection.

    Dan, my mom has one that she bought new when they were new. (BTW, she's looking for a replacement for the misplaced lens cap.) She lives a few states away, but if you're still in need of an owner's manual, I can copy it when I see her next time. How are you liking it so far?
