Rediscovering an Old Camera!

Last week, I was looking at some of my old stuffs and I found an old Minolta Maxxum 5 SLR Camera.


I was never able to use it that much before. It was kind of like a waste since I was never that interested in photography during that time.This was like 8 or 9 years ago by the way.

However, times have changed. In fact, I badly want to have a DSLR camera now. I can't afford to have one as of the moment so I decided to make use of this old  stuff.

I bought films and batteries to check if it still would work. The last time I used this was approximately five years ago. Just when I thought it wouldn't do any good now, to my surprise, these were the pictures I was able to take.


That's my grandfather on Emo/Muscleman mode. LOL


My dog, Philip, who reminds me of the movie Marley and Me.


Having breakfast with my mother dear. I don't know why she's wearing that hat. :D



Tried to do a macro shot, but this one is off focus. I should have used a tripod.


I tried to take some landscape photos too.

Overall, this camera still rocks. I could still put it to great use. I could practice photography the hard way. The hard way meaning using Film and not going Digital yet. Not to mention, using this camera would entail extra expenses for developing the film, etc etc. Whatever. As long as it still takes good pictures then I'm willing to invest. :)

Someday, I will own a DSLR and probably become a good photographer. :)
