A good starter, a long laster and good all-rounder...

Its not digital - not overly technical.

The first thing you notice is the Minolta's striking appearance. The contemporary black and silver finish makes this an attractive item to hold. However, beauty is in the eye of the beholder and what really matters is not style but performance! ...And the Minolta has bags of it! The Minolta 404si...

I finaly came back to slr and real film from digital. I was fed up with missing the picture I wanted. By the time digital cameras turn on the picture was gone.I got my Dynax 404 from ebay with a 200 mm lens,a bag,strap and 12 rolls of 400 film for £30.Superb camera.Easy to use.And I never miss the picture.Continuous advance is a bit slow but for the price I can't moan.No support at Konica for it

Has persistent fault with premature film re-wind

In this sense I was extremely happy with the purchase and would recommend it to anyone who was wanting to 'get into' SLRs. My only issue with it is quite...
