Minolta 7D - Vintage Digital?
The focus of this blog is my camera collection. I'm showing the cameras that have interested me - and the images that I take with them. When I started, I thought I would stick to film cameras, but now I find that I am collecting a few "old" but important digital cameras that have a bit of a story to tell.
This is the Minolta 7D, the first DLSR (and last) produced by Minolta. The designers leaned heavily on their experience with film SLRs (Minolta 7) but the 7D was also indicative of fine DLSRs that were to come from the new owner of the Minolta know-how - Sony.
