Minolta Dynax 300si 35mm slr

The Minolta Dynax 300si 35mm autofocus slr was the entry level camera in the Minolta si series which culminated in the 800si.  Although it didn’t have many of the pro-level features of that camera, it was still a capable unit for family and holiday snapshots, as well as a good camera for anyone intending to grow into the more capable Minolta auto focus offerings.

Fuji X-T1 and Fujinon XF 27mm f/2.8 pancake lens

When I bought my Fuji X-T1 a couple of weeks ago there was a double cashback offer available which meant I could pick up an additional lens and get a really good deal. There are several lenses I intend to buy at some point, but the first one I decided to get was the Fujinon xf 27mm f/2.8 pancake lens which I picked up at the same time as I bought the camera. Today I had to go on a […]

Pentax Program A short camera review

This is a short review of the Pentax Program A 35mm camera which mainly covers the differences between this camera and the Pentax Super Program which I reviewed a few weeks ago. Pentax Program A Images My Pentax Program A Camera I bought this camera mostly for the lens which came with it which is an SMC Pentax-M 28mm f/2.8. This is like a faster version of Takumar 28mm f/3.5 which I have, but with a Pentax K mount rather […]

Pentax Z-20 35mm auto-focus slr review

This is a review of one of the best specified models in the Pentax Z series of auto-focus 35mm film cameras – the Pentax Z-20. This is one of the not so well know models in the Pentax range, but one that I think is a bit of a star once you get to know it. Pentax Z-20 Images My Pentax Z-20 Camera This Pentax Z-20 was bought to compliment my other Pentax Z series cameras, a Z-1 and Z-1p […]

Ricoh XR-X 35mm manual focus slr review

This is a review of the Ricoh XR-X (known in the USA as the XR-M) 35mm manual focus slr camera. Ricoh XR-X Images My Ricoh XR-X Camera I bought this camera because I have a Ricoh KR-10m and wanted to see how the Ricoh XR-X, which is reputed to be a fine camera, compared to it. I found it on ebay and thought it looked pretty good value because it was bundled with the optional flash unit and was only £10. […]

Pentax SF10 35mm Autofocus SLR

This Pentax SLR comes from the SF range of cameras which Pentax introduced before the Z and MZ range, and were the first set of autofocus SLR cameras the company made. This model, the Pentax SF10 was also known as the SF7 and is similar in styling to the SFXn camera which I own, but is a rather simpler and more basic model than that. It was manufactured in about 1988. Pentax SF10 Images My Pentax SF10 Camera I purchased […]

Pentax MZ-M 35mm SLR

I’m having a bit of a run on the Pentax MZ series at the moment and my recent purchase of the Pentax MZ-M helps in my aim to own every model produced. As is stands I have nearly all the entry/mid level examples except the MZ-10 but I still need to get some of the top end models, MZ-6, MZ-3 and MZ-S. I will probably be able to get the MZ-6 and the MZ-3 but the MZ-S is still selling […]
