Going back to January 1985, Minolta released the game changing Maxxum 7000 AF camera. With this camera, came the pioneer of the autofocus (AF) system that laid ground for much better AF in later SLRs and digital cameras today. In 1986, this camera would have cost about 325 USD, that is about 700 USD after inflation. Nowadays you can find this bad boys on Ebay for about 10-30 bucks, crazy. I got this off kijiji for 20 bucks, with a 28-85 F3.5-5.6 lens, and came with 5 expired films. Two of which are Kodak Black and White 400CN of unknown expired date, and unknown storage condition... which were use in the Maxxum 7000 over 3 weeks, and here are the some of the photos I took from landscape photography to even engagement portraits. I hope you enjoy the photos taken by this piece of photography history. - Ply
