Greetings Dyxumers,
I've been a member of the forum for a while, but I've never introduced myself so here it goes!

My name is Peter (29) and I'm from Osijek, Croatia. I've been taking pictures all my life with various P&S camera (Olympus and Sony) and in 2008 I got my first DSLR, Sony a200. And then all hell broke loose! I got the gear bug and I've "been shooting brick walls" and looking into 2000% crops for quite a while without learning almost nothing about photography. Salvation came when I found dyxum.com - it literally changed my photographic life.

Now, I'm trying to improve myself as a photographer. I've been reading a lot and looking what others do. Cameras and lenses do not take pictures - people do!

I'm engaged to Ida, my constant source of inspiration. I work as a legal counselor in a music school, until this summer I worked as Italian language teacher in a high school. Must add that I'm not a teacher though. I hold a Master's degree in Law. (shoot me!)

Finally, I have to thank everybody on this forum for their comments and suggestions, they are of tremendous help to me!

Cheers!

Hiya guys, long time lurker here.. your reviews database has proven valuable in helping me select my classic Minolta glass.

When I first got my Alpha I was looking for used glass in the local classifieds and saw an ad for "The Minolta Handshake Lens", a quick Google search brought me here. The next thing you know I've cleared out the local camera shops choicest Minolta AF's.

1 1/2 months later I bought that same 28-135 which tipped me off about Dyxum & vintage Minolta glass working on Alpha's :D

Hi guys!

I'm Kristoffer, and I live in Gothenburg, Sweden. I work as a software system tester, and got a master's degree in interaction design.

Been here at dyxum for a few months now, but didn't create an account. Just yesterday I created an account and made my first post =)

Been shooting with compact cameras since 2005. Bought my first DSLR this spring, which made myself much more interested in photography. A Sony alpha a33, which I love!

Trying to go through the assignments right now, which is a really great way to learn about techniques, and how to take good photos. I really appreciate any comments I get on my posts =)

Feeling really good to be here =)

Hello everyone. I have been checking in on this site for several months. Looking at mostly lens reviews and samples from users. I have been a minolta user for many years since i bought the maxxum 7000 in 1988. Since then i have gone through many models to where i am now.

Currently, i use the A100 with original minolta lenses of which i own several including 135 f2.8 af, 50 f1.8, 85 f1.4 just to name a few. The alpha is not the only camera brand i own and use. I also use the Canon 30D and panasonic LX2 and FZ100. I use the 30D far more than the others.

At the moment i am looking for an adapter that would allow me to use my minolta MD lenses on my 30D. The two lenses i want to try is the 85 f2 and the formula 5 135 f1.8.

Hi folks,
I'm new(ish) to these forums so I'd like to say a few things about myself. I am a 31 yo freelance photographer based in Finland. I discovered my love for photography only a year ago and it's been "downhill" ever since :) One day, I hope to be able to bring the food to my family's table as a pure blood professional photographer.

My passion lies in portraiture with an artistic twist. I love people and would like to photograph them all!

Equipment: a850 and a580 with lots and lots of glass in the bag.

My 1st real camera was a Cannon "T 50", then went right into digital camera's from there, current camera is a sony 10.1 mega pixel cybershot, about 1yr old.

Hello,

I just found this thread, even though I've been posting on the site for a few days. I am Rebecca, from Oklahoma, USA.

I moved from a Leica D-Lux2 point and shoot (with lots of manual options) on November 11. It wasn't a considered move. I looked at cameras online, then went to my local camera shop and bought a Sony a55. This is my first ever dslr, and I am having SO much fun with it!

I found Dyxum sometime (can't remember when, exactly) after I got the camera. I was blown away by the quality of the photos people post here. If I ever get where I can do things like that, I will feel that I've succeeded.

Cameras and photography do play a small part in my professional life. I have to take photos which will then be reproduced and printed in mass mailings. That sounds a lot spiffier than it is. The photos have to be sharp enough and make a point well enough to illustrate the text and draw the reader's eye. But that's it. I could crop to my heart's content to get what I needed, and, of course, reader's didn't know any more than me about things like noise and ca.

My point and shoot was good enough for it, even though I know that the Sony will make what I do much more effective ... at least it will when I get to be a good enough photographer not to insult the camera.

I was totally lost when I got to this forum. I didn't even understand half of what you were talking about.

I'm grateful to have found this site. It is a trove of information and help. I plan to try to work my way through the photo assignments after the New Year. I expect it will be difficult for me, but that I will learn a great deal.

Hello all!

My name is Brian. I reside in South Florida near Ft. Lauderdale.

Been out of photography for more than a few years. In fact I just finished off a roll of 35mm that had been siting in my 7000i for over 7 years. I can't wait to see what pictures turn up when its developed, well if they do.

Figured it was time to pick things back up. I was lucky enough to find one of the few A65's in a local retail store.

Love the site! Looking forward to continued posting and reading all the helpful tips.

Hi all I am a lurker newbie. just love looking at all the awesome shots posted and reading all the great info posted. I am a hobbyist. I bought my first Minolta 35mm way back when, and when I was shopping around for a dslr I found out the alphas would use the great Minolta lenses it was a no brainier. I never did shoot in manual before so I have been learning a lot since July 2010 when I got my Sony alpha 500. I have been working very hard at wearing it out because when I do I will be ready to upgrade... I know I have lots more to learn so I am here to learn from the best.

Hello everyone,

After lurking here for over a year I figure it's time to be more involved. I am a 29yo civil engineer from Michigan. I became interested in photography back in high school using my parents old Canon film SLR.   I took the plunge and bought an A580 last February after pouring over internet reivews of everything, with this website being especially helpful.

My main interests are travel/vacation photography (primarily streetscapes, landscapes, and panos) and macro photography of flowers and other small stuff. I'm still working on my composition skills and hope to find time to do the Dyxum photographic assignments.

I've really enjoyed using this website as a reference and I am in awe of the skills of many of the contributors. I'm glad to be a part of it now!

Best regards,
Steve

Hello to everyone!

Just joined today after a long, long time observing as a non-registered guest!

My name is Chris and I reside in Oxfordshire, UK.

Grew up using basic instamatic 110 film cameras, have a few old Minolta SLR's that still get used from time to time. Only went to digital a few years back and went with Sony as I has old Minolta glass and well, everyone uses Nikon and Canon so I wanted something a little different, and glad I did.

Anyway, Hope to get better and better and learn from all the stunning photographers on here!

Be seeing you!

Hello Dyxum people.

I am Willem 59 years old, and live with my wife on a jacht (Stormvogel) in Kerkdriel Holland.
For my is 14 days at home, and 14 days as a captain on a tanker Liguria 4000 tons. So we live always on water.

I like Dyxum very much, and follow it for years. And now I realyse its more off a community, over the world.
So I like to be part off it, and I am a member for a couple off months.
My foto hobby starts at 14 years old (Voigtlander), with few years inbetween off little foto's taken.
With 16 year I had a Nikkermat FTN, great camera.
And then more off Nikon, dia's with Cibacrome, great combination.

Digital a start with, 7D, A100,A700 and a77.

This is the place to learn and to enjoy the wonderfull picture's for my.

Greetings and keep your rudder straigt.

Hello folks!
I am few mounts on this site but I have never introduced myself like this.
My name is Lazar and I live in Macedonia, I have Sony A230 for more than 2 years so on. I own 3 lenses kit Sony 18-55 F3.5-5.6, Minolta 50mm F1.5 and Sigma 75-300 F4.5-5.6.
My favorite topics are architecture and nature.
in recent times I have doubts should I leave Sony and move to Canicon. Main reason is that Sony is moving away from DSLR and favors SLT instead. My hope is that they will continue to produce DSLR, that will be one problem less for me.

I joined Dyxum recently, and just discovered this thread. In fact, this is my first post in the forum. I'm in my mid-30s, from Dallas area (Texas).

My first SLR was a Minolta in the late 90s. I stepped into digital world with Sony F828 over eight years ago, a camera that I still have. Who knew at the time that Minolta would be Sony? Well, it worked for me, as I had a few lenses from the film SLR that could be used on my Sony SLT-A55, an addition in June 2011. But, none of those lenses remain now. My current inventory:
Zoom Lenses...
Sony 16-50/2.8 SSM
Sigma 18-250/3.5-6.3 HSM

Prime Lenses...
Sigma 24mm/2.8
Industar-61 L/Z 50mm/2.8
Tamron SP 90mm/2.8 Macro
Jupiter-37A 135mm/3.5
Minolta 200mm/2.8 G APO HS

Teleconverter...
Tamron MC7 (7-element) 2X. It works with all lenses.

My next addition was meant to be Sony 70-400G but lately, I've been split about getting Sony 135mm/2.8-T4.5 STF first.

@mpb, a haven't tried any SLT. The main reason is that I don't even like to try them. First they don't have OVF. Even the best hi-tech EVF can't see as human eye (they can never can). At the time when I used a P&S camera a still used the OVF (eve it was a lot incorrect). Second reason id that translucent glass block part of the light from getting to sensor. As I now so far one of the main requirements for photography is light. We are paying great amount of money to bye lenses with bigger F stop number so beside DOF we can get more light through them, so we can have faster shutter speed, lower ISO etc. And third I am traditionalist, SLR is just fine for me it satisfy my requirements. Maybe SLT is the future of photography but nobody knows yet. And I am sure that a lot of people will stick to (D)SLR for long time.

Hello everyone! I Have finally decided to register after coming on here (almost daily!) to check out what people are posting. Some amazing works here!!

Anyway, my first camera was a compact canon...can't remember the make. There was then a big gap of about...3 years, between that and getting my first dSLR (dynax 5D) - courtesy of my (big hearted) brother. I recently got myself the Sony 50 F1.8 and absolutely LOVE it! It hasn't come off since, apart from one time. Along with that, I have KM 18-70, Tamron 28-200, and Sigma 70-300 with macro. I'm waiting on some extension tubes (I can't afford a macro lens right now) and hoping they arrive Monday or Tuesday!

So, that was long winded. I'm off to post some photos and get some responses. Thanks for having me :)

Hello Everyone

I guess this is where I introduce myself! I've recently gotten more serious again about photography, and have been hitting this forum pretty hard to learn things.

My first alpha mount I bought in 1989ish when I was in college. I took photo classes via the architecture department (didn't have to be a major!) and that got me into darkroom work.

I was never any serious professional, but I made a little money off motorsports work at the local racetrack, taking pictures of the racers, blowing them up, and selling them to the subjects at the next race.

I eventually had a darkroom at home, though most of my work was done in develop-myself slides. When that camera died I picked up another maxxum and only ever ran a few rolls of film through it, since the wife's point and shoot digital was so much more convenient.

When I finally figured out that my old lenses would work on a new Sony, and the prices were far less for the bodies than I had come to expect, I pickup up an a33 SLT. That has renewed my interest, so here I am. None of my lens inventory was anything to brag about, but I always loved the 50/1.7 I had picked up for the film camera so I'm glad I can still use it - its not bad at all for portaiture.

I live near Seattle, WA, USA. I look forward to learning more! I'll probably ask a lot of dumb questions.

I'm new ...ish but just ran across this 'newbie' thread. I started out with Canon film in the early 80's and came over to digital in 2008 with the Leica-M8 w/Leica primes. The lenses were great but I never really captured a lot of keepers'. Also, I didn't much care for the upper management of the company.

Anyway, I sold it all and just bought a Leica P&S and man was that ever boring! I sold it too and bought the A900 with CZ 135 but not before I considered the NEX7, A77 and Fuji X100. The full-frame coupled with Zeiss glass just seemed more useful without the usual conversion of equivalent focal length crap and cutesy features that brain-dead marketers like to add in.

In the end I discovered that you don't always get what you pay for, but the A900 seems like a solid peace of gear when coupled with standout glass.

Regards,
DanO.

Hi, I`m a complete newb to digital slr/slt photography. Having received an A35 from Santa recently I have managed to pick up some very cheap but decent lens thanks initially to the reviews provided here.

I`m 45 shortly and dabbled in film in my very early 20`s with a Ricoh XRX an Uncle acquired for me to go on safari in Kenya. I tended to use auto settings where possible and had little time to learn so shot 30 odd rolls of film and got a couple of decent shots!! Did learn the basics of manual focusing I guess as I took a cheap Zenit push pull zoom which was hideous to use but provided the odd good moment.I used the camera sporadically for a good few years thereafter but had too many interests to learn properly and no internet around to help which may have made a difference!

I used a Canon powershot G2 for a period in the late 90`s early noughties but thats it as far as my experience goes, I am looking forward to learning more from this excellent resource and will take up some assignments soon as I get to grips with my kit.

I will continue to browse until then, cheers.

Hi Dyxum

Have been a Minolta user since age 5 when I used my Granddads 7000 to take a picture of him, a camera I inherited a few years later and still have and use to this day!

I have over the years collected some great glass and taken a lot of film and digital images, as with most amateur photographers I have had months of horror to every moment of brilliance.

I have recently got back into the world of photography purchasing a couple of new lenses including a 85mm f1.4 from Stuartcliffe (Many thanks).

I am always amazed by how much abuse good quality camera equipment can take, I have had to dry my 600si and a 28mm f2.8 on a radiator after a very, very wet climb of Snowden, will never get over the fact it worked after a couple of hours drying out.

I have always been into landscapes, but with the 85mm f1.4 and a 100mm f2 I am looking to get more into portraits, I have photographed weddings and christenings for friends but would like to get into shooting some more. I made a great flash defuser out of some tin foil and a rubber band for in church photos and it was excellent!!

Current thoughts are full frame DSLR (a900/a850) I had a test of an a65 and I have to say I wasn't all that impressed, probably needed a bit more time to get a feel for it but there was no WOW factor when pixel peeping, which surprised me??

Anyway that’s a short(ish) intro.

Hi everyone I am Joe, I'm originally from the States but is now working in Asia in the media industry. The first camera I owned was a Minolta followed by a Sony P&S and I only recently started getting into more serious photography. I got a Sony A65 and this site has provided a great deal of info and tips. Although the problem is that now I developed a serious case of lens lust that can't seem to be cured ! Hopefully I can make some contributions once I'm more confident with my work.

Cheers,

Wow -- $8K! So that was, what, two lenses? Or did you get the volume discount and get three for that price?

Hi, Joe.   

I'm pretty new here, too. Dyxum is a great site for info and great photos. I'm not that good, but I jumped right in by posting some of my shots. Nobody's been mean.      So don't worry too much, join the fun. Everybody here loves looking at pictures. And there are folks of all skill / artistic levels.

Again, Welcome!

Mike

Edit: Sorry about your lens lust. Myself, I'm MUCH better now.

Hello everyone. I am Steven.

I am originally from England, but now live in Oregon, USA. I started getting interested in photography when I got a Minolta Dynax 500si super in the late 90s, but although I took some good pictures with it, I never got past the scenic modes! PASM were scary letters I avoided at all costs. So when, 18 months ago, I got my Sony A550 I resolved to learn how to take the pictures myself, rather then let the camera do it for me. I soon found this site, and I am continually picking up tips and information from the posts here. Of the many sites I have visited, this one stands out as (probably) the friendliest, especially for learners like myself.

Thank you for all your help so far.

I am relatively new to digital photography and am enjoying it. I like to get out of bed before sunrise for photography.

I have a new website I want to share:

Hello everyone,

Thanks so much for creating and maintaining this wonderful forum!

With a background in astronomy and physics, I've long loved optics and photography. For many years I shot advanced P&S Canons. But after they kept breaking, I decided to step up to a different brand w/ a DLSR (SLT technically), and after a lot of research, I settled on Sony.

For nearly a year, I've been shooting w/ an A33 and I love it! So much fun. It's taken me nearly that long to finally register with Dyxum, although I've long been using the site for lens reviews and enjoying all the great posts in the forums. Sometimes, after a long day, I simply enjoy chilling at night by clicking through old posts, photos and lens reviews on the site.

Because I like optics & tinkering, I've very much into manual lenses. My favorite is an SMC Takumar 50 1.4. I'm also tinkering with a broken Bronica 75 2.8 to try and turn it into a tilt-shift lens. Mostly, I take a lot of photos, and really enjoy taking photos, but I don't do a whole lot with the photos I take, unless they're for someone else (like a wedding, etc.)

However, because it is sometimes hard to photograph my quick-moving kids with manual focus lenses, I also use a lovely Tamron 28-75 2.8 or a Sony 35 1.8 quite a bit. At some point, I'll post this all into the lineup forum.

I'm at the point where my photography is mostly personal and fun/relaxing, but I'm also trying to get into a bit of freelance work. Something relatively easy that doesn't get in the way of my day job. Portraiture or real estate photography seem interesting possibilities. I'd love to try some of those photo challenges, or simply post photos to the site. But my life is so busy, I'm not sure I'll have time to do much of that for a while.

Please feel free to drop me a note to say hello.

Ian

Hello Ian. Welcome to the best part of Dyxum........the posting. You obviously know your way around the joint so you'll get into the swing of things easily. I look forward to hearing your views on lenses and hopefully seeing some of your photos at some point. I should think quite a few people are going to be very interested in hearing all about your T&S project and there will be plenty of others willing to help you with the best way to get a bit of freelance work. As you know there are very many helpful and caring people in this amazing site and I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

Welcome.

Hello dear Dyxum Members!

i began reading dyxum about a year ago, and joined it in Summer 2011, but never introduced myself so far.

i am currently 22 years old, and studying architecture in Vienna.

a bit more than one year ago, we were told at the university to get a camera for the study. So i began to search for a camera that would fit my needs.. i decided not to get a simple point a shoot, because i always was a bit fascinatet by photographic gear in photography in common..
After reading many and many reviwes on the internet, i decided to buy a dslr. Then i visitet a local dealer, where i spottet a good offer for a Alpha450... and that was it. Thats what leaded me to the Dyxum Forum.

From then on i started reading the lens database, and made my first optical purchases.. Without dyxum i would have ended up for shure buying something like a tamron 18-200... Ore just simply the wrong minolta glass..
Big Thanks to the community for sharing their Reviews and sample pictures for each existing lens for the A-Mount!!!

today i even posted my first photos here on dyxum.

Hallo to all Dyxumers. I'm actually new-old member. My former account was found in 2007 by quidoy. I haven't been here for ages and that's why I could remember neither password to the dyxum account nor email password at that time used. Never mind. So something about me again-my name is Milan, I'm 45 and into close-ups and portraiture photography mainly. My new toy (bought yesterday) is 135 STF and that made me register here again in order to post some shots made by this great lens.

hey guys,
my name is Chris, and i joined a few days ago. i had an a350 from a kit i bought from circuit city for 350 bux when it was going outta business. then due to my wife trying to be typical woman... the screen cracked(her "cute" bag instead of camera bag). well 3 years later still cracked so never got around to using or fixing it and the a350 relies too much on that lcd. my passion was renewed when i found an x700 at thrift store for 20 bux but find out the film advance was broken.... ok so i was on ebay looking for a body for the nice 50mm 1.7 glass on it when lo and behold, 2 working maxxum 5000 for 7 bux? it's mine, all mine!!!! that got me here looking for info on the 5000s. i started with tech info, then found the photo forum and i think i've been on the info forum once since i joined. i love the photo community here and a few of you have seen me posting around. well, hopefully i will be able to start using these cameras again. i live in baltimore, md and have so much to photograph that it's a shame i have to wait a few more weeks. until then you guys are helping me a great deal and i hope my amateur 2 cents (or 1 cent for my level of knowledge) will suffice for now.

About time I introduce myself.

My name is John and I live in Gresham, Oregon, USA. I've been a Minolta fan/user since 1985 when I bought a Maxxum 7000 (with the crossed X logo) when a friend who served as a photographers mate in navy offered to teach me how to shoot. I soon scrimped, begged and saved enough to purchase a 70-210 beercan and then a Tokina 28-70 lens. I graduated to a 9000 about 5 years later and bought a couple more lenses (don't remember which now as I sold the 7000 with those lenses on ebay in the mid 90's.)

When digital came about I purchased a Kodak DC260 with all of the accessories (which I still have to this day - and now that I think of it would make a good still life subject.) I found that the lack of paying for film and processing made me lazy and I've developed bad habits since I purchased that first digital camera. It was just too darn easy to press delete and re-shoot. I moved to various Sony, Canon and Nikon point and shoot cameras. This culminated, about 3 years ago, in purchasing a Canon G10 (again with a lot of accessories) and I was in heaven. The images were good, but I was still lazy. On a trip recently to Thailand and Malaysia, I was walking out to our long tail boat, cut my toe on some coral and dunked my camera in the Andaman sea, in Maya bay! It never worked again. :( However, all of the images up to that point were fine.

I got home after this trip and was determined to buy and Alpha camera, which I had wanted since Sony purchased the division from Konica/Minolta and I finally settled on an Alpha 77 since I had four remaining lenses. Oh My Goodness! This is shooting!

I am so happy to have found Dyxum and hope to meet some of you wonderful photographers in person someday. I would especially be interested in finding people from the NW to go on outings with.

Thanks for having me and I hope to learn a lot from the people here who seem to be so generous with information, time and honest C&C. It is with your help, I will lose those bad point-n-shoot habits I've developed over the last 25+ years.

Thanks again,
John

Hello Dyxum folks! I have been a member since November of last year. I am originally from Guatemala (Central America) but I reside in upstate New York, in the USA... I have a beautiful wife, 2 great boys (15 and 9) and a cool dog that you'll see posing for pictures. I started shooting at the end of 2010 and have fallen in love with photography.   I have been lucky enough to rapidly "upgrade" my equipment. Went from an a300 (who my 9 year old is now claiming his own, he too, loves taking pics! ) to an a580 to an a900 within the last year or so.

Thank you all for sharing all these wonderful shots and above all, thank you for sharing all the knowledge, either through candid feedback or the knowledge base posts!

I'm really glad to be a part of this fantastic online community. I hope at some point I get to meet some of you face to face.

Hi! :)
I'm Andreas, living in Germany since 6 years and born in Vienna, Austria. In my teeange years i used happily a Dynax 7000i, but somehow, after school etc. lost interest in photography, mainly beause i couldnt / didnt want to afford the costs of films/development etc. ( i was always a high quantity shooter ;) ) Last year an KM Dimage resparked my interest in photography, and when it broke i got at the end of the year a new Sony A65. Wihc i now use together with several old Minolta lenses of mine, and some new cheap Sony primes, a tamron macro and a samyang Wide-Angle. Currently im in the midst of a 365 project, started 1st January, which prooves to be difficult since i am since the end of April father of our first son ... not much time for taking shots or anything else ;)
Since when i was deciding end of last year on buying the A65 i was lurking here on dyxum from time to time, and more frequently in the last weeks (especialy in early morning when our baby decides to keep us awake ;) ) - therefor i felt it was about time to register here, and contribute in one form or another as time allows :) And i guess i will sooner or later try to work on the "Assignments" here, which intrigue me quite a bit ;)
Oh, to be exact, i live in Trier, Germany (Rhineland-Palatinate). And i havent yet decided what my mainarea of photography is or will be - im too busy with my 365 project to at least get an basic idea of something which might be called my personal style, if that even exists.

Hello,
I am Gert, I am from Holland I'd like take pictures of the Dutch landscapes in a bit different way. I also do that with cows and sheep. I like to take pictures from a little very quiet boat.
