This Minolta XG-1 was purchased by my grandfather in 1982, and given to my dad. He gave it to me about ten years ago, but I was a bit intimidated by it and it collected dust. I recently started shooting with it, and I've really enjoyed it so far. It doesn't at all compare to my 5d, but there's something exceptionally satisfying about using it. Not only do I think it looks cool, but I love the sounds it makes and the feel of the advance lever.
I have a habit of getting emotionally attached to many of my images, so now I'm in big trouble shooting with film! If/when I post crap, I'm reliving the moment when I see/post. I'm sure many can relate.
XG-1, 50 f2, HP5.
I posted the digital version a few pages back.
