St Andrews Lane, Headington, Oxford | Minolta XD7 | MD 50 mm f/1.7
I picked this camera up on eBay and I have to say I’m hugely impressed.
The example I have is not perfect, the selected shutter speed and aperture indicators (using the little windows in the prism housing) don’t work. The shutter is lovely, so quiet compared to the A100 and feather light. The body is compact and solid; the metal construction inspiring confidence. The camera apparently shares a development programme with the Leica R4, and I can believe it.
I got a film back from processing today, with all the pictures scanned at 3000×2000 pixels (6 MB), and a few will follow this posting, which features a climbing rose.
