In 2021 my parents gifted me what used to be our "family camera" – a Minolta X-500 from 1983 with a 50mm 1.7 lens (+ a huge zoom lens and some rings for macro wizardry). As soon as the camera was fixed (I replaced a broken capacitor with my dad’s help and YouTube) I quickly fell in love with it.
By now I have a small collection of various Minoltas and lenses, but I still come back to the X-500 a lot.
This is a selection of frames I shot in 2021 and 2022. I hope you enjoy some of them 🖤
