Minolta Dynax 7000i no S mode

Hello,i have a Minolta 7000i in good cosmetic condizioni. It works "perfect" but when i try to change Modes the S mode does not appear,only M,A and P. Someone have any suggestions? Thanks

Hmm, just a guess: is it possible that the camera has one of the "creative" expansion cards installed, and that that card locks out S mode in favor of something else it is providing?

I'd suspect the lens. What lens are you using?

Unfortunately my battery is dead, so I can't try to recreate.

It still might be due to a card - there was a creative settings card that could change settings which may then stay in place if the card is out (I stress I'm not sure about this because I never got into cards, but I seem to remember seeing it stated somewhere on the web).

If you have to lose one exposure mode, shutter priority isn't the worst (unless you are doing an airshow or motorsport). It is a nice camera, although the jog switches are not as easy to use as a dial.

Ok i understand. Thank you so much. I'll try to search if there Is a card that maintain its setting even It isn't in the camera,otherwise i would use it anyway. In other cameras i use shutter priority a few times,so It isn't a big issue for me
