Minolta Hi-Matic 7 Review – One Year Shooting Film – By Seb Copley

Sometime last winter I started reading and taking an interest in online articles about a resurgence of analogue photography.

We used cameras lots as children, I had a variety of compacts although I couldn’t tell you which ones, more interesting were my dad’s SLRs.
