For the dinosaurs among us; this new forum is for discussion of the old legacy Alpha/Dynax/Maxxum film bodies - relevant posts from other forums have been transferred over and may be joined by others in the near future.

I guess that things will inevitably drift off topic here (much as they do in the other forums), but please try to keep mainly to discussions involving the Minolta Autofocus bodies :-) Postings that are way off topic may be moved elsewhere (or even deleted!) :-0

An understandable boo boo there Bob but shouldn't it read Alpha/DYNAX/Maxxum (not Dyxum) :)

Bob, would it be a step too far to start a sub forum for manual minolta topics? *hopeful looks*
There is nothing, absolutely nothing, half so much worth doing, as simply messing about in boats

I think you are fine to post manual Minolta stuff in this forum - there is enough of a connection through ethos and history. I know that Mladen is keen to keep the number of individual forums down as much as possible.

I understand your point chaps but I think we dinosaurs/luddites/nostalgia buffs should stick together and show the rest the
I shot some film yesterday. I was told last night that film was dead so today I shot some more.

Indeed, the MF bit is only an extra service for a forum dedicated to the Minolta AF mount.

How far back do you want to go?
Check this great overview on Photoclubalpha.

But since people are screwing mc, md and even m42 stuff on their AF gear, it all gets a bit mixed up I guess.

The X-370 should be far enuff back for this forum. All the good bodies came after that. But the concentration should be on the Film AF stuff that has gotten us this far. Yes, MD, MC, M42 Lenses from Manual times are being sought after for reasons unbekwownst to me but we should keep this thread in relationship to the AF bodies we use now. We have plenty to talk about and learn without mucking it up with Manual Confusion. I have been shooting 7000's and 9000's for years and still don't know enough. Any thing we need to learn Manually can be learned on those 2 cameras, as well.

I am new here but what drew me to this sight and made me decide to join, is all the wonderfull insight and commeradery of this Minolta AF community. I have re-learned things that I had forgot and have a new respect for what others had taught me in the past. I would like to keep that fire going in a forward direction and this thread will be of great help to those people like me, who still wish to shoot film. Heck, I havn't gone near my dark room in a long time and I think I really miss it. After I shot the film challenge, my wife couldn't get me to come to dinner until the processing was done and I had to let the film dry.

Sorry, rambling now.
