Hi all, I'm on a quest for my first flash. I am currently using two cameras, A550 (digital) and Minolta Maxxum 7 (film), so first requirement is the flash to be fully functional on both. I am striving to understand which setup would benefit me more. Next priorities are HSS, future compatibility (I will eventually upgrade A550 so I would like to have an option for Multi Interface Shoe) and I also want to be able to use the flash off camera with a trigger. I am considering those two...
Recently i discovered that my A7r (over 55000 of clicks for almost two years) occasionally takes a black frames during shooting - maybe dozen or two per few hundreds shots. It' not completely the same as was with infamous Black Frame issue with Konica Minolta 7D (where it takes a first black frame after not used for a while camera taken and progressively heads towards a Shutter replacement) but it scares me a little. Maybe is better to show it in authorized...
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...
