Minolta XD-11 test shots in Priority Aperture mode
Lens: Minolta MD 50mm f1.7 Camera: Minolta XD-11 Photo Location: Various

I just started shooting film again a couple of months ago, and I've always used Pentax/Ricoh cameras; currently I'm using the MX which takes superb pics. After watching a video on uTube by Gary Friedman on various Minolta 35mm's and his praise for the XD-11, I acquired an almost mint one on ebay. Glad I did; it's a beautifully engineered camera. These are from the first roll I shot testing out the Aperture Priority mode; I'm shooting a second roll in Shutter Priority mode now, and if they're as good as the these are I'll be more than satisfied. Shooting was done with the Minolta MD f1.7 lens, using Fujicolor 200 film. The mountains in an icy rain shots were taken in the late afternoon, and the others earlier that day.

I meant to post these in the SLR forum, in fact I went to the film shots thread.
