    I bought my Minolta X-700 back in the early 80's. I took with me every where I went. It was the camera I used for my first paid job (photographing an airplane in flight). I have not used it in about 10 years and I thought it was time to dust it off and go back to the basics.
    Nikon D-3000, 18 - 55 mm f5.6 kit lens , 55-200 mm and a cheap ass 400 mm f8.

    Wow, I remember the Minolta. At one time I owned the SRT-101 and then the 102. Never made it to the X-700. I always thought they were a fine company and made good products.

      I was taking portraits with my Mamiya RB 67 before all this digital stuff came out. I would shoot either 8 or 12 exposures and I was finished with the portrait session. With digital I tend to overshoot giving the customer way too many images. Perhaps I can use my medium format camera for some nature or landscape shots.
