Hi! Have been away from this forum almost 10 years. My old KM7D and 5D are both still like new and working well. Both have had this "first frame black" issue but after few repairs they have been working well. Only issue is with my 7D is that it will run out of battery in 2-3 weeks even if I don't use it. But the battery life is normal if I start using it after charging the battery (it takes that x- hundred of frames until the battery is empty). Anyone knows whats the problem? On my KM5D the...
I was given a Konica Minolta Maxxum 7D by a co-worker, he bought a new camera. I used to love taking photos but that was over 30 years ago and it was all film then. It has been an ordeal with the digital cameras you guys have now but I am learning quickly. I have a question about the Maxxum 7D, can I take black and white photos? If so what do I do? I think I have checked the menu completely and found no option for B/W. Thanks,

Hi, I recently purchased a Sony A7 camera, with the LE-EA4 adapter. Would like to come back to the Minolta lenses, I had a maxxum 7D, and really enjoyed it, while it lasted. For the A7, what Minolta lenses can you recommend, I have never used a full frame Sony camera before, and do not know what would be a good choice. I am also looking for a decent compact Flash unit. Any advice would be greatly appreciated Thank you very much.

I debated about whether to post this in the Sony or KM forum, in the end I decided on the Sony forum because I suspect I'd have more chance of finding the right answer here. I want to set up a cheapo studio at home for photographing items for our small business. Nothing too fancy or expensive, but there are a couple of pitfalls I don't want to fall in to. I'm currently (still) using my KM 7D body, and that will continue to be used for the time being. At some point I am sure that I will...

A few months ago I bought the A6000 with a few primes to replace my old KM7D, and I was going to sell my A-mount lenses but never really got around doing it. Among these is the Sigma 50-150mm F2.8 (old version), which I loved on the 7D and knew I was going to miss. So recently I was doing both some video and photo shooting at an event at work using the A6000 for video and the 7D for photos, and shooting with the Sigma made me reconsider selling it and maybe getting the LA-EA4 instead to use...

HiI've got a konica minolta 7d and this year vacation was a total fail for me. After a littel car accident my LCD got broke. I'm seachring for the LCD but did not get to much information where i can get it.I did find this info on german minolta forum:2181090 "LCD MONITOR" (U3040516U) USD 115,02but sony website says it's no longer available ;/Search on ebay did not go good as well. Any ideas where i can get it? or is there someone who want to sell an LCD?
I have been looking at the Nikon D100 for a while now, but I am curious if the Minolta 7D is better? Plus, if the Minolta is only digital lenses or can I use film lenses as well? I have an Olympus that I am disappointed with because it seems to only want digital lenses and I am one that enjoys my digital camera to be as close to film, in quality, as possible.
