Hi, I'm Dan. I'm and Englishman living in the Midwest. I've been taking pictures for as long as I can remember. I've been through the "I'm awesome, look I can put a white vignette on my pics!" phase. I've been through the "P Mode is way better than auto mode." phase. I've been through the "Hey, what's this button do?" phase. I've been through the "HDR!!!! F**K YEAH!!!!" phase. I've been through the "Maaaaan, I suck at this." phase. I've been through the "...sunny 16 that means I need to go two stops...... might drop the ISO.... (Insert more random geekiness here)" phase I'm currently at the "Lets collect as many vintage cameras as I can." phase.

From the cutting room floor - The Minolta X-570

Published April 4th, 2012

Here are the shot's which didn't make the cut, but were half decent.


Yet another great find in the Thrift store which I frequent on a daily basis.

This is a Minolta X-570, First produced in 1983 (The year of my birth!).

It's a semi-pro Film SLR with an inbuilt metering system, 10 second timer and speeds from Bulb to 1/1000. It also has an auto mode similar to the Aperture priority modes of modern day DSLRs.

This is going to be my full time film SLR, haven't put it down since I bought it.

Bought for $3, probably worth around $75.
