    Happy Minolta trails, Sid. The Minolta and Pentax manual focus stuff is underapprecated, now that Nikon and Canon so dominate the current camera media.

    The X-700 has a capacitor problem, as do all the X-570, 370, and 300 cameras. Look for an older body for a safer long term back up for your minolts glass. Some of the 80's third party glass was not great, but the oem primes are really good.

    Pleased you are dipping your toe into the analog pond.

    Here are a few pictures from my first roll. It was an old roll of color film that happened to be in the bag with my camera. Who knows how old it was, but I blame myself for any poor images. As you can see I have lots of learning to do! I included some of my favorite shots (the flowers) and embarrassing ones (dark, out of focus trees). Thanks for all the welcomes everyone!

    Welcome aboard and welcome to film Sid. I get the l33t spelling but lots of folks won't. I

    I don't know that particular model but Minolta stuff in general is good. If these have known issues with capacitors dying you can pick up an older manual SRT model for just a few dollars usually and use it with all your lenses.

    What kind of color film was it? From the contrast it looks like these could be scans of slides?

    It was ISO 400 film, T-Max I think. Not 100% sure. These images were from the disk I got when my pictures were developed, so I'm not sure how they scanned them.

    It wasn't T-Max. That's black and white film.

    Actually I think the tree trunk may be the best of the bunch, depending on individual taste. The main trunk is reasonably in focus and the rest out. If this was your intention, then you were successful. The effect is a reasonable expectation. If you were taking a picture of a pond, then you were a bloody failure. Cartier-Bresson would have sworn up and down that he was shooting a trunk and that he did it at the exact second of perfect lighting for that day.
