The Minolta is a very cool camera.

I'm going to get some bad a** stickers for it too, and maybe a huge matte box so it looks more pro. It's already black! I'm going to be a great photographer. ;)


ANyway, I had been leaning more towards the Fuji S7000 or the A1, but then I lucked in on a deal on the A2. (at least a deal for us Canadians. It still cost more than in the US).

Don't cry when the replacement comes out any second, Dylan--I'm trying not to think about it either!

Charles, what do you mean? THe guy that sold it to me said it would always be top of the line?!? ;)

Actually Charles, I was going to ask you if you could post some comparison examples from your A1. The ISO 200 and up settings are pretty noisy in dark areas, would you be able to post a full-res .jpg from yours so I can see if it's natural for these cameras? I know they are a little noisy, just wondering if mine is over the top.

Also (for Charles, or Jeff or anyone)

Is there any good tests I can do to tell if my image stabilizer works? Sometimes it seems to, sometimes it doesn't. I need a test that will really make it stand out.

Much appreciated.

Charles--slight hi-jack here but on your site you show pics of your editing system. That wooden table looks fantastic--who makes it and where did you get it---and how much?
