Well, this week’s post was supposed to be about another new to me Minolta, a 5000, but it died on entry. I loaded the camera and all seemed well, but then I heard a strange noise and the LCD flashed “help”. From what I could figure out and research, there was an issue with the aperture control unit. I tried all the lenses I had and the same “help” message flashed up. So I gave up and put it in the bin. They are not expensive to replace so not worth the money to fix…even if I could.
So I took the expired Ilford Delta 400 film out of the camera and loaded it into my XG2. Then I took it to Buxton to play with while I took part in a digital photo competition. The camera’s mirror did lock up a couple of times but I managed to finish the film. This Minolta month has been a bit of a trial so far. There have been film issues, camera issues, postal issues…a camera I swapped for this month has not yet arrived. I will be surprised if I manage to post anything next week.
So here are most of the photos from my walk around Buxton.
Kind of a weird set, I was in a weird mood 🙂 But I least I got some results.
