I just picked up a 35mm Canon EOS 1 professional camera :?

Sure it's old, but it will still take a hell of a shot, and I got it cheap, it's inspired me to get out more and take some stunning shots (I hope).

I still use and enjoy my Minolta film SLR and won't disparage your choice, but the name of this site it Steve's Digicams. You will probably get more enthusiasm from a site such as photo.net

Have fun with your camera.

"Minolta film SLR", huh? But, did it get a review here?

Sorry, I couldn't resist. :-)

SRT-102, so probably not reviewed. Never could see the use of all that fancy auto-everything stuff on a camera. Can't find one without it these days though. It is good that on some of them at least, it can be turned off.

Yea, I figured it was probably an older one. Great little cameras. My brother-in-law has an SRT-101 with a very nice lens collection. Some of that Rokkor glass is pretty nice.

I've thought about getting a MC/MD to Maxxum mount adapter from time to time so that I could borrow some of them (Minolta changed the mount in 1985 when they brought out their Maxxum/Dynax Autofocus camera line, so I'd need an adapter to mount them on my Maxxum 5D).

I just couldn't resist pointing out that we actually have a couple of film model reviews on the site (although I don't think they ever made to the news page or any review menus).
