andyuk51's review of Minolta Dynax 700si

“I have used Minolta cameras for quite a few years now...”

Good Points
So many useful functions, to many to list.

Bad Points
It doesn't make the tea on a cold morning when fixed to a tripod!

General Comments
I have used Minolta cameras for quite a few years now and this Minolta Dynax 700si is by far the best yet. Before I go on I must recommend you buy the Hove publication manual for this camera. It tells you how to use the cameras features easily and then you will realise what an absolute amazing machine you own.

I have found the metering system to be accurate, focusing is spot on and the features are endless. One feature in particular that is so simple yet so useful, its called "Eye Start". On the grip of the camera are two sensors and another sensor just below the view finder on the back of the camera. Providing you are holding the two strips on the grip and your face, or anything else for that matter, is against the sensors of the view finder the camera will automatically focus and meter ready to take the shot without needing to depress the trigger button. If that doesn't appeal to you then, and how about this for a cool feature, you just switch it off. In fact with all the available options on this camera you can turn them all off and use it as a fully manual camera! What more can I say but again get that book by Hove Publications for the Minolta 700si
