Technical notes

By Jim

You may have noticed the pictures looked a little different lately. This is because my Konica Minolta Maxxum 5D SLR was in the shop for repairs. It was covered by a service campaign by Sony, who bought Konica Minolta's camera business, so it didn't cost us anything but a couple of weeks of lost use. We've been using our now-elderly (5 years old!) Minolta Dimage S414 for the past two weeks. The Maxxum is back, though, and we took some pictures of dinner that Barbara will be writing about soon.

I bought the Maxxum 5D three years ago. The repair fixed a known shutter defect that showed up on our trip to Malaysia, so now I have a camera with a brand new shutter and should be good for many more years. I love this camera. It's great for relative stealthy photos (Useable ISO3200, large aperature prime lenses, and antishake are great for restaurant pictures or museums without flash). Also, I have to say that Sony did right by us with the repair campaign for these Konica Minolta cameras.

Anyway, we have a lot of dinner pictures waiting for blog posts. So, stay tuned.
