After many years I am eventually updating my digital camera. The Minolta Z1 with 3.2 mega pixels has been my go-to for nearly twenty years and has given me stalwart service for all of that time.
I'm now playing with this bad-boy. A Nikon D3300 with DX VR set up.
I would like to tell you that it's simple.....
But it is a bit like learning a new language. I am currently taking images with both cameras and checking the quality and settings of the finished photographs. The Minolta (after all these years) has been set up for my circumstances and feels like an old friend. The Nikon is fighting me all the way (far to sophisticated) so expect a long hand-over period before I'm happy with the results.
In addition I have been using the tripod and fast-release system for taking images and even changing my pale blue background for a more publishing friendly white one in the hope that it will give better images for magazine articles.
If anyone has any suggestions - remember that most of my photography is in what the Minolta calls Macro and Fine Quality or close-up. I would very much appreciate it.
