In the bag

My first camera was a Kodak instamatic kit, which I was given by my Grandma for my birthday as a child. Later on I bought an Olympus Trip point and shoot 35mm. My first SLR camera was a Zenit, which my Dad handed down to me. It taught me how to work completely manually without a battery in sight.I still have these cameras. I later moved to Minolta with a Minolta Dynax 5 SLR 35mm. I joined the digital era fairly late on and naturally moved on to the Konica Minolta Dynax 5D SLR and subsequently up to the lovely 7D, which was fabulous for macro projects. I am still sorry to have seen the 7D go as it was such a wonderfully mechanical DSLR rather than an electrictronic instrument. 

At the end of 2007, with the demise of Minolta in the photographic world, I decided to trade in my system for Nikon. It was a difficult and well reasearched decision and one I do not regret.
