    That's all for now. Looking forward to seeing everyone's images.

  17. I posted a pic of the Minolta Dynax 7 I'm currently enjoying the use of over in the "What camera..." thread, and Mike Gammill responded with " I look forward to seeing some images, Rick."

    Well, here are some from the first serious film through the camera, following a couple of test films I ran to check out the multitude of features on offer. It's a very complex camera and I'm still learning as I go...For those members who have never handled a Dynax 7, here's a pic of the rear.

    The large LCD screen offers a choice of operating scenarios, and I've been using the most comprehensive, that features all one needs to know about the operating status of the camera. When the camera is held horizontally the display reads horizontally, but turn the camera to the vertical position and the display rotates 90 degrees to present the data in vertical format. How cute is that! Of course, go to Custom Function 32 in the list of 35 custom functions and you can instruct the camera not to do this... Anyway, I'm well on the way to becoming a real Dynax 7 enthusiast.

    The lens was the Minolta Maxxum 24-105mm f/3.5-4.5 lens. Mike pointed out that this is a very good zoom lens, and I certainly agree with him. The film used for the samples below was Ilford Delta 400, developed in PMK Pyro.

  18. Thanks for sharing, Rick. I'd forgotten about the auto-rotate LCD display. I never got to handle a Maxxum 7 (aka Dynax) as our family camera shop had closed before the Maxxum 7 was released. When one is out taking photos with a film camera that has such a generous LCD screen I wouldn't be surprised if people look toward the photographer thinking a preview image will appear. Hmm. I recently gave away my Maxxum 5. Now I have room in my camera cabinet for a Maxxum 7. Might have to start looking.

  20. Great start to this weeks thread, everyone. Looking forward to seeing more images. If you haven't been able to get out and take pictures, feel free to post from your archives. Don't worry if you post something that you've posted before as we have new members and guests that probably haven't seen them. The school I teach at is off a week for Thanksgiving holidays so I plan to scan some of my older negatives to eventually post. And likely I''ll have a few new rolls to develop and scan this week.
