    Well , that is cheap !
    I hope you didn't miss-buy though .
    In your other thread you ask about cameras with a fully articulated rear LCD screen .

    Like the Canon EOS 60d .
    The Canon EOS d60 being it's great grandfather from 2002 .

    I still enjoy using my Minolta Dynax 7d from 2003 , likewise it has a 6 megapixel sensor .
    The ergonomics are spot on , and it's a nice camera to use .
    I like the results as well .

    I hope you enjoy your "new" camera .
    ( I also hope it's the one you were expecting !:rolleyes: )

    Not quite as cheap as the £5 Fuji, which I returned to the charity shop ecology in the hope that more people would benefit from it. It was a very capable little camera...

    This was a one off purchase nothing to do with wanting an articulated screen I just wanted it and it was a bargain, at THAT price :) :) :)

    I will now save for the D3200 as the 3300, 400, 500 has no more to offer me

    The camera is a new as possible for the age !!!!! looks unused and the lens cleaned up 100% with iso. IMG_20200616_100437283.jpg IMG_20200616_100258230.jpg IMG_20200616_100533049.jpg IMG_20200616_100443293.jpg

    I also love the way Canon lenses twist off the "right" way :)

    Slow ?!?

    It was a marvel of modern technology !

    It was 2006 before I got an upgrade to my 1985 ( film ) Minolta 7000AF in the way of a Sony a100 who could use the same lenses .

    Both of which I still have !
    The Minolta Dynax 7d was bought a year later as a back up to the Sony and for use in low light .

    Shoot RAW and process in modern software gives these old sensors a new lease of life .

    I remember someone in Jessops where I "used" to shop years back had the minolta 9000, what a camera that was

    Both the 7000 and 9000 also had still video backs which turned these cameras into primitive digital cameras… 0.38 megapixels

    I have the 9000AF as well ( most of the Minolta AF & MF cameras too for that matter !) And I have the still backs on notification on eBay.
    Whenever they come up it always states they've no idea if they work , and always asking nearly £1000 for them .
    So I haven't got one yet , maybe if I come across one for less than £100 ......with a decent returns policy ........

    The oldest digital camera i have is the 1995 , Minolta RD-175 . It had. Shopping 1.75 megapixel sensor . Agfa also sold this camera as the "Agfa Action cam" .
    It was sold as the first affordable digital camera . I forget the cost , but it was about the same as a family car !
    Which was a lot cheaper than the alternatives at that time .
