Heather and I went to the botanical gardens out at Zilker park this past weekend, and I dusted off my old Minolta Maxxum 430si (yes, it’s really a “dead media” camera – 35mm film). The photos turned out pretty good, and aside from the heat it was a really nice time. I think I might have to upgrade to a digital SLR though; Wolf Camera has a pretty nice Konica Minolta digital body for just under $600. Advantage to that particular body: my old lens will work because Minolta hasn’t changed their ring size. And based on the press release on their web site, they probably never will, either.
