Thanks for the great work! I used to be a Minolta fan before I switched to digital and have quite a few Minolta lenses as well as two program flashers which I kept just in case! I now consider buying the Sony DSLR 550 and am pleasantly surprised to find it compatible with most of the stuff I saved from oblivion! Thanks to you I now have the Program Flash 3600(D) manual!

Thank you for the great website. I'm trying out film again now that I've picked up my father's old Minolta 5000i after years of shooting digitally.

Very nice Photos. I am inspired to be more creative with lighting and angles. While most of the time I use a Pentax K20D, I have recently taken a liking to film. I have quite an assortment of Minolta's that I am playing with. I also picked up a Minolta Dimage 7 and am expierimenting with IR. Just like you I have a passion for computers and photography is a close second. Fits in nicely with my kayaking and nature shots. Ray Carpenter South Carolina

Viken, I am pleased with your fast answer and valuable document service. My Minolta Dimage 2300 camera works perfect, but as it was a gift, I didn't know just how to set up and use it. Again, many thanks. Dave Hoefle, Leesubrg, Florida.

Hi, I was looking for a user's manual for a Minolta Maxxum 400si on nthe internet and I came upon your website. I haven't seen everything yet so, I'm putting it on my favorites and intend to come back to it later. Judging from what I saw so far, I liked it! Excellent pictures. Sacramento, CA

What a brilliant find. Looking for a manual for an (old) friend who had just bought a second hand Minolta flash and didn't think I'd find exactly what he was looking for. This must have taken lots of time and effort. Many thanks, PW, England

Hello, I just purchased my first digital camera...the Maxxum 7D...I've been a life long Minolta fan starting WAY back in the late 70's early 80's with the X370, an X700 followed and was added to the tool pallet and now the 7D joins them. Do wish someone made an adapter so I could use my SLR lenses with the 7D but who knows maybe someday!...sports and nature shots are my bag and the Minolta's have always been there 100% for me...NEVER a failure (knock on wood!) I love your photo's you've loaded and your website is very comfortable to navigate through...VERY NICE! Thank you! Chris

Thank you! Your site has me focused on going digital. My son gave me the link and after finding out about the Minolta flash manuals I am happy to say I am back to taking photos. No more 35mm film. Using a Min 7D now. Still making the transition to digital. You have some great photos here and hope to do same. Bless you and your family. Ron N.

I have just visited your site to obtain a Minolta manual for my Dynax 404 si. I some how lost the manual which has been incredibly frustrating. I used my camera a great deal while we travelled around Australia for the year in 2001 and I thought I wouldn't forget how to use it after that magic year, but the brain cells seem to have withered. My sister who used to be a photographer told me about your site. Thank you so much! Bless you for this invaluable service. You have made my day. Wishing you and your family the blessings of abundance and happiness. Pam - Australia

Thank you, Viken! My wife and I just downloaded the manual for our Maxxum 400si (left the original in Florida!). Note: After I couldn't use this site's hyperlink for the manual download, Viken graceously sent it e-mail. Again, thanks! Also, anyone have any ideas why we can't set the 400si for anything else but auto? Thought the instruction manual would help. Mode button works, but can't select any manual functions by rotating dial. Great site(!) and professionally done! Wouldn't have found the site if we wouldn't have lost the manual!

Found yr site while looking for Minolta XE info - WOW! You really have the knack; your site is wonderful! In an indirect way I have a little knowledge of Armenia, from reading about the Caucasus, yr horrific history with Turkey, and from a personal side, yr wonderful carpets! I am into hand knotted carpets and rugs, and want to use my XE for taking photos of them; it will be interesting, carpets being notoriously difficult to accurately capture on film so they can be reproduced properly over the net. Just hoping I am able to take pics somewhere close to the extremely fine work you display on this terrific site. Many thanks, Martin.
