Ok, many moons later, I’ve completed a roll of film. However, when I went to rewind it, it seemed to rewind much more quickly than expected, almost as if it hadn’t properly advanced the film in the first place. Soooo, I’m going to drop the film off for developing and I should know later this week if anything turned out. Fingers crossed….
Also, I’ve added a couple other rolls of film to the collection to cover the one I used.
I see that Minolta SR-T 101 is a MC mount camera, and that MD lenses would work on it in manual mode.
Basically, MC lenses will support aperture priority on cameras with it, but not shutter priority or program mode on later MD mount cameras like the XD series or X700. They are all manual focus, Minolta went with a completely different mount for their AF cameras.
I have a decent collection of old minolta gear, it was a very cheap way into 35mm photography (the common lenses can be had for 30 or 40$ and most of them are excellent)
Sorry this took so long, guys. That hurricane Ike remnant wreaked all kinds of havoc in the Midwest. Anyway, apparently the local camera shop no longer develops b/w film in-house. Instead, they ship it off to Kodak, so it’ll be awhile before I get my prints back. I’m ready to send the camera on, though, and it looks like Uranus was next after me. PM me your addy and I’ll get it shipped out to you toute de suite!
