Film Fridays: Minolta X-9 Sample Images
Well I said I would share more of my film work so here I am.
I really regret selling my Minolta X-9. I took some of my favourite street photos with the beast, it was built like a tank and never EVER had a problem. I paired it with the Minolta MD 35-70mm f/3.5 lens (the third and latest version from the 80’s) and for a couple of years it was my main body since I couldn’t afford a digital camera at the time. As you’ll see from the Minolta X-9 sample images below, I tend to favour black and white film.
There’s plenty to love about the camera. It has a nice, bright viewfinder that makes focusing relatively easy. I’ve had less mis-focused images with the X-9 than any other manual focus film camera. Not to be outdone, the camera did some fantastic work in Chicago as well as Brussels:
I’m trying to keep these blog posts short and heavy on the images, so I won’t bore anyone any further. I hope these images prove useful for anyone considering the Minolta X-9 as their next SLR buy – I really couldn’t recommend it any higher; for novice or pro, the Minolta line up of affordable lenses make this workhorse an excellent choice.
