  1. Dear David,

    In collaboration with Sony Switzerland I just published a beautiful 200p large-size book about the a900 and all the good old alpha lenses (Minolta, Sony, Zeiss). I’d like to send you a copy. You’ll find a few pdfs here:

    Hello David
    I hope you don’t mind me asking you a Alamy related question via this website.
    I have read various posts of yours on the Alamy forums and think you seem to know what you are talking about, I have also read that you are a Mac & Aperture user.
    So I was wandering if you could tell me what is your workflow using Aperture to submit to Alamy.

    David: I saw your YouTube video about NEX-3 adapters. I have a bunch of old Nikon AI lenses. Do you have any recommendations? Thanks so much.

    I don’t use Aperture, I use ACR/Bridge. That’s mainly because I use the lens profiles and camera colour profiles in ACR/Lightroom. I do not like raw processors which try to catalogue or organise your files in libraries etc. For that, I use Expression Media 2 and it is the master catalogue for all my finished images. I do have Aperture installed it’s just too slow and non-intuitive for individual file processing. I do not shoot it batches and therefore find all batch-type processors (including LR, DxO, C1) less than efficient. Every picture is individually processed.

    Kipon make affordable adaptors. I have their tilt adaptor, they make one for Nikon fit. It’s rather fun to use. Anything much cheaper (generic Chinese) can be very variable; anything more expensive (Sony Approved Voigtlander, LensBaby) can be a silly price relative to the cost of the NEX itself.

    I have a Minolta 7000i prototype it is my understanding that they were sent only to Distributers. Years ago I contacted Konica Minolta a management person emailed me said he also had one & that I was the only one he knew of that even heard of it’s existence. Is there anyone out there that has information as to how many were produced? It is very similar to the final product some markings, buttons & card slot are different. Mine is from the Distributor in Canada.

    David – been suggested I try contact yourself, as the expert on all things Minolta.
    I have a Dimage Scan Dual IV and need to get hold of a replacement 35mm slide tray.
    Are you aware of any spares specialist or a breakers yard for Minolta ?

  8. admin says:

    Sorry, didn’t pick this up when you posted it (this site is extremely slow and flaky). I do not have any spares though I do still have one of the scanners, unused. My mail to Adrian Paul (minoltamania, Photostore) is now being returned and I’m not sure if he’s trading.
