    Default Minolta 800si

    hi all,

    Me considering purchasing the Minolta 800si.

    Main Reasons:

    (1) Price had dropped tremendously
    (2) Somewhat a Pro camera (data memory, IR AF illuminator, 94% viewfinder,...)

    Main Dislikes:

    (1) 3fps (Arrgghhh!!!)
    (2) No rear flash sync (is it true???)

    Can anyone provide me with more of their experience (or hearsay also can) with this little "baby"????

    No lah, not that old...still in production...made in 1997. Anyways, the cost of it had dropped to S$700 before discount!

    Just imagine, 14 honeycomb matrix metering, spot/center weighted metering, IR AF illuminator, 3fps (letdown), 9 roll data memory, 94% viewfinder, 1/200 flash sync, tough body, LED lightup, 4 CCD focusing, 9 multi-exposure, 3,5 or 7 bracketing, ....

    How about another $700 more for a modern Dynax 7?

    Heck, did consider that...but S$700 more can buy more lens....
    So many choices...too little money...

    PS: Another S$3000 more can buy Nikon F5....

    lol, i don't eat mice nowaday. I prefer chicken(white).


    Anyway, I don't think you can get Dynax 7 second hand lar. This is a new/sweet baby. Don't think anyone will give it away.
