some years ago when everyone started buying digital cameras I bought a KONICA MINOLTA DYNAX 4
The Konica Minolta Dynax 4 35mm SLR camera was introduced in 1999. The Dynax 4 was designed to be extremely portable,comes with a 20-80mm lens,a built in flash and a hot shoe for flash. Easy to use,effective in manual or auto mode. Capable of automatic focus, in fact the Dynax 4 has one of the fastest autofocus system in its class. Exposure can be further controlled with exposure compensation , automatic exposure bracketing and multiple exposures as well as four exposures modes: program(P),aperture priority(A),shutter priority(S),and manual(M).Exposure automatically takes a three-frame series of a scene with a slight variation in exposure for each frame which can be made in 0.3,0.5,0.7,or 1.0 Ev increments.
In addiction to the essential modes P,A,S and M, Dynax 4 has all the usual crutch modes for the beginners : portrait,landscape,close-up,sports and night portrait.
Any standard 35mm film may be used , but infrared film is not recommended because the frame counter shines infrared light at the sprockets. The camera can´t advanced beyond the 40th frame in rolls of film with more than 40 frames.
