5 frames with a Minolta Dynax 7000 – By Dorian Farrimond

I can completely understand why you’d think a Dynax 7000 is an irrational choice of camera. Even when it launched, photographers were wary of all the complex electronics that could cause problems. Whether that was a valid concern at the time is debatable, but it’s definitely something to think about 30 years later. A nice metal-bodied manual-focus SLR from the 1970s will be with you as long as you want it to be – if it breaks it can be repaired, and if you decide to sell, it will be worth more than you paid for it. This camera is none of those things.
