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. I have long had an interest in photography which I am sure mostly comes from my dad. 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. One of which was a Minolta XD7, which he used; the other a Zenit E. The Zenit was the children’s SLR, my dad’s from the 70s, a big hulk of a camera with a broken light meter. We had a variety of lenses, a normal, wide angle and telephoto. It’s the memory of taking some great photos with this that spiked my interest in film photography.
