I just got a Minolta Maxxum 5000 camera for free. It was left at our wedding reception. We called all the guests, talked to the people that owned the building, and left the camera there for 3 months for someone to pick it up or call about it, nobody did. So now ive got a camera to play with. It has a Vivitar lens. I love photography, but never really done anything other then playing around with my cameras as a kid or my crappy digital camera now. So im not sure about aperture settings, shutter settings, or anything like that. What brand of film do you recommend I use? Any ideas on how to play with the settings? I went to Minoltas website and downloaded the manual for the camera, but the instructions are a little confusing in some parts. I guess ill just have to start snapping pics and figure out which combination of settings works the best. Btw, I need a flash for it, how can I tell which ones are compatible? I know the camera is a little old so there might be a broader selection of compatible flashes then what it shows in the manual. Or am I completely wrong?
