Misrepresented with No Customer Support I just want to echo the other reviewers of this piece of trash. I installed the BlazeVIdeo 1. 3-D, clarity, micro/macro and overall usefulness I use a full frame Nikon camera that is sensitive to low light and can use an f/2.

Unless you are planning to do hundreds of professional scans a day, this is an excellent option for multi-function scanning of negatives. Highly recommend this scanner, particularly because of Digital Ice software that enables one to scan older.

I wanted a scanner for 35mm and 6x7 black and white negatives that did a better job than my Epson 4870. Overall this scanner is more than I expected for use. It will handle everything I need in a scanner. The scanner is evetything that was said it was. I've had this for about two weeks and have had no problems. I've scanned photos and doents, both have come out great.

This is my 2nd Epson photo scanner, and I am very pleased with both (1st was a 2400 Photo). I like the Digital ICE dust and scratch removal.

The next four sections cover things you must do to prepare your camera for taking pictures: Attach lens (at right). Insert batteries and turn main switch on (pp. 12 and 13). Set film speed (p. 16). Load camera with film (pp. 17 to 20). You must always install batteries properly and turn on the main switch before loading f i l m ; the order of other steps may vary. Instructions for rewinding and unloading film are also given in this part. We recommend reading them before starting to use your camera, so that you will be sure what to do when you come to the end of the film.
Body and lens caps Remove body and lens caps as shown above. CAUTIONS Always cap the rear end of the lens and the lens mount of the camera when the lens is not attached, and the front of the lens when the camera is not in use.
To prevent damage to the control pins, never set a lens w i t h its rear end down unless a rear lens cap is on. If it is necessary to set an uncapped lens with its front end down, do so on a smooth surface. Fisheye lenses should always be capped before being placed front end down. Keep lenses, properly capped front and rear, in their cases when not in use.
To attach lenses After removing the body cap and rear lens cap, align the red mounting index on the lens barrel w i t h the red index on the camera's lens mount, insert the lens bayonet into the socket, then turn the lens clockwise until it locks into place with a click.
To remove lenses While pushing the lens-release b u t t o n , turn the lens counterclockwise as far as it will go, then lift it out of the mount. CAUTION Be careful not to touch anything inside the camera when attaching or removing lenses.
Care of glass surfaces Never touch lens or eyepiece surfaces with fingers or other objects. If necessary, remove loose matter with a blower brush. Use special photographic lens tissue or a soft, clean cloth to remove smudges or fingerprints with a gentle circular motion. Only if absolutely necessary, the tissue may be moistened very slightly with not more than one drop of a satisfactory quickevaporating fluid cleaner specially compounded for photographic lenses. Such fluids must never be dropped directly on the glass surface. Never lift the mirror or touch its surface, as doing so might damage the alignment. Small smudges or fingerprints on the mirror will not affect the meter reading or image quality; if they are very annoying, have the camera cleaned at an authorized Minolta service facility.

Mode/shutter-speed selector and P/A-lock release The mode/shutter-speed selector can be rotated continuously in either direction but locks at " P " and " A " to prevent accidental movement. Release the selector by pressing the P/A-lock release, then turn it until it clicks or locks into place at the desired position.
Minimum-aperture lock In P mode, it is recommended to lock the lens at its minimum aperture to prevent accidental movement. To do so, line up the green f-number (f/16, f / , or f/32, depending on lens) with the index, then pull the slider toward the camera. To release the lock for A mode or M mode, push the slider away from the camera body. NOTE Only new-type MD lenses have the lock.
Eyepiece cap If the shutter is released without the eyepiece being shielded by your head (such as in remote or selftimer operation, etc.) when the camera is used in P or A mode or at " B " , slide the eyepiece cap onto the frame around the eyepiece to prevent unwanted light from affecting the meter reading and exposure. The eyepiece cap can be threaded on the camera strap to keep it handy for use. 25

Basic settings

Set m o d e selector at " P ".
Taking pictures in P mode After you have set the camera as shown at left, it will automatically set the shutter speed and aperture for you (see program graph on p. 30). All you need do before releasing the shutter is compose, focus, and check the viewfinder as follows: Is the over-range LED blinking? If so, use a neutral-density (ND) filter or reduce the light level if possible. Is an LED on in the danger zone for hand-holding (usually 1/30 sec. or slower see p. 44)? Or does the slow-shutter-speed warning beep when the main switch is at " O N " and you touch the operating button? If so, use a suitable camera-support method (p. 46) or a flash (p. 50).
Is an LED on or blinking outside the applicable range in the table on page 31? If so, exposure may be incorrect. NOTES If the lens is not set at minimum aperture, the " P " will blink as a warning. Although exposure will still be correct unless an over- or under-range LED blinks, the program's range will be limited so that it cannot accommodate brighter subjects. In some situations you may want to use the AE-lock or exposureadjustment control (pp. 34 and 35). If your head is not shielding the eyepiece from light when the picture is taken, use the eyepiece cap (p.25).
Set and lock lens at minimum aperture (green figure). 26 USE ONLY MD LENSES

To obtain proper exposure in high-contrast lighting situations where your subject is on the edge of the frame or occupies only a small portion in the center, use the AE lock as follows: 1. Shift the camera's position so the subject fills most of the frame. For small subjects, you may need to move closer. 2. With the viewfinder LED display on, press the AE lock all the way down and hold it there; you may
EXPOSURE-ADJUSTMENT CONTROL then remove your finger from the operating button if desired. 3. Recompose your picture as desired. 4. Release the shutter while still holding the AE lock down. NOTES Suggestions on when to use the AE lock are given on pages 36 and 37. The AE lock cannot be used in M mode or together with the selftimer. If you wish to change the settings of film speed, exposure adjustment, mode/shutter-speed, or aperture, do so before pressing the AE lock. The AE lock does not operate if pressed while the motor drive is used at " H i ".

-2 -+1 +2

To deliberately increase or decrease exposure from the normal metered value, turn the exposureadjustment control while pressing the lock release until the desired position is aligned with the index. Set minus () numbers to darken exposure and plus (+) numbers to lighten exposure, as indicated in the table. NOTES The control will lock at " 0 " and each half-stop setting, though settings between half stops can also be used.
two stops less = one-quarter normal exposure one stop less = one-half normal exposure normal exposure one stop more = double normal exposure two stops more = four times normal exposure
When the control is not at " 0 " , the +/- LED in the viewfinder will blink to let you know exposure is being adjusted. Be sure to return the control to " 0 " after using exposure-adjustment settings. Both aperture and shutter speed are changed by exposure adjustment in P mode; in A mode, only shutter speed is adjusted.
WHEN TO USE AE LOCK A N D EXPOSURE The following suggestions on when to use the AE lock or exposure-adjustment control can serve as starting points for trial; individual conditions and taste will, of course, determine what exposure you choose. In situations where there is a great brightness difference between the subject and background and the most important area is considerably darker than the area surrounding it, use the AE lock to lock the meter reading with the camera positioned so the subject fills most of the finder, or set the exposure-adjustment control at + 1/2 to +2 stops. Examples are pictures with strong backlighting and no fill-in illumination (such as photos A and B), or subjects against a background of snow or lightcolored sand, unless the bright area occupies a very small part of the frame. If the most important subject area is much brighter than the rest of the picture, use the AE lock as above or set the exposure-adjustment control at 1/2 to -2 stops. Examples are subjects in a spotlight or shaft of sunlight or against a very dark background (such as photos C and D), unless the background occupies only a small area in the frame. When copying documents printed on white stock or on other predominantly light-colored materials, an adjustment of +1/2 to +2 stops may be necessary. Similarly, you will probably want to make an adjustment of 1/2 to 2 stops for predominantly dark copy material, or that on a dark background. When using an R60 (red) filter, adjust exposure + 1 stop.

Focusing aid The X-700's standard focusing screen has a split-image spot surrounded by a band of microprisms in the center of an Acute Matte field. To focus the camera visually with usual lenses, look through the viewfinder and turn the focusing ring of the lens u n t i l : Upper and lower subject images in the spot are exactly aligned with no broken lines between them, Subject image in the band does not shimmer or appear broken up,and Subject image within the focusing aid appears clearest and seems to blend w i t h that on the matte field surrounding it. Though the most satisfactory focusing aid and method depend upon the conditions and your personal preference, the above method may provide the best results with medi40 um wideangle to medium telephoto lenses. Generally speaking, however, you will probably find that focusing is easiest if: Split-image spot is used for subjects having vertical lines. Microprism band is used for lenses from medium wideangle through medium telephoto, especially with subjects not having vertical lines. Matte field is used for longerfocal-length lenses or for macro or other work involving considerable lens extension.

In focus

NOTE The X-700's standard focusing screen can be replaced at any authorized Minolta service facility by any of eight optional focusing screens (see p. 57).

Out of focus

Distance scale You may find that in the following situations it is easier to focus by estimating the distance to your subject, then aligning the corresponding figure on the distance scale with the index: If you are taking long exposures or flash pictures when it is too dark to focus through the lens If you want to prefocus on your subject, such as in quickly shot candid photos
Film-plane index The symbol beneath the filmadvance lever indicates the position occupied by the film in the camera. It can be used for measuring the distance from subject to film when taking close-ups, photomacrographs, and photomicrographs, where the exact distance is sometimes important.
Infrared index For proper focus when using infrared film, first focus your subject as usual w i t h visible light, then attach a red filter and turn the focusing ring to the right to align the point of proper focus on the distance scale w i t h the small red dot (or red " R " on MC and oldtype MD lenses) on the depth-offield scale. Set exposure according to the film manufacturer's recommendations. 41


Focused distance APERTURE
Focused distance FOCUSED DISTANCE
focused distance FOCAL LENGTH
The range behind and in front of the focused distance within which the image appears acceptably sharp is called the depth of field. It extends a greater distance behind the focused distance (usually about 1/3 in front, 2/3 behind) and is determined by three factors: the aperture, the distance at which the lens is focused, and the focal length of the lens. As illustrated by shaded trees above, depth of field increases as the lens is stopped down (e.g., f/1.7 to f/22) and becomes greater the farther from the camera the lens is

focused. It decreases as the lens is opened up (e.g., f/22 to f/1.7) and the closer the lens is focused. Depth of field is greater for short-focal-length lenses than for telephotos at the same focused distance and aperture. It is at its least for any given lens in normal mounting when the lens is at maximum aperture (as when metering and focusing normally with Minolta MD or MC lenses) and at minimum focusing distance.
Preview button In A and M mode, depth of field at any focused distance and aperture can be checked visually by pushing the preview button all the way in. This will stop the diaphragm down to the aperture corresponding to the f-number set on the aperture ring, allowing you to see through the viewfinder how much of the subject is acceptably sharp. NOTE The shutter speed indicated by LED while the preview button is pressed is NOT the actual shutter speed.
Depth-of-field scale When the lens is focused at a given point, the image will be in satisfactory focus from the nearer value to the farther value on the distance scale indicated by the depth-of-field marks for the aperture in use. For example, if a 50mm f/1.7 lens is focused at 3m (about 10 ft.) and the aperture is f / 8 , the corresponding graduations to left and right of the index indicate acceptable sharpness from about 2.4 to 4.2m (approx. 8 to 14 ft.).
The depth-of-field scale can also be used to zone focus, i.e., set the focusing ring so that some anticipated action will take place within the limits of the depth of field. For example, if you want any subject within a range of 2.6m (approx. 81/2 ft.) to infinity to be reasonably sharp and the lighting conditions allow you to set an aperture of f/16 in A or M mode with a 50mm f/1.7 lens, set the lens so the infinity mark is opposite the " " on the right end of the scale.
A blurred photograph results when movement of the subject or camera during exposure causes a shift in the position of the image on f i l m. The shutter speed required to "freeze" an object's action normally increases as the object's speed increases; however, no matter what the speed, an object moving across the viewfinder field requires a faster shutter speed than one moving at the same speed directly toward or away from the camera. Similarly, a moving object near the camera (or one appearing nearer due to use of a longerfocal-length lens or a close-up accessory) requires a faster shutter speed than one farther away. Blur from camera motion depends on such factors as the lens being used, the apparent closeness of the subject when viewed through the lens, the shutter speed, and the camera-support method. Since longer-focal-length lenses and closeup accessories increase the relative size of the subject, even a slight movement of the camera will be magnified on f i l m ; the greater weight and size of such lenses and accessories may also make it difficult to hold them steady. A good rule to follow is that the slowest shutter speed that can be safely used by most people when hand-holding a lens is the reciprocal of the focal length. For example, for a 125mm lens, the speed would be 1/125 sec; for a 300mm lens, it would be 1/500 (1/300 raised to the next faster speed to be on the safe side). Use of a sufficiently fast shutter speed is also important when taking pictures from a moving, vibrating vehicle such as a boat, car, train, or plane (especially to prevent blurring the foreground, if any) or from a vibrating object such as a bridge. To reduce transmission of the vibrations through your body to the camera, relax your body and avoid direct contact with the object as far as possible.

In order to obtain sharp, blur-free photos, it is important to release the shutter gently while keeping the camera as still as possible. Always, regardless of shutter speed, release the shutter with a slow, steady squeeze never a quick jab preferably while holding your breath. Shown at right are some ways of holding the camera to provide adequate support at normal and fast shutter speeds. If you grasp the camera firmly with your right hand on its front and back grips, you can easily shift it back and forth for horizontal (a) and vertical (b) pictures without removing your hand from its controls. Also, by cradling the camera in your left hand to support it, you can readily focus and set the aperture, if necessary, then shoot; another way is to use
your left hand to focus, then grasp the left part of the body for support. Photo (c) shows an alternative for holding the camera vertically. You should, of course, experiment to find the way that suits you best.
Slow-shutter-speed warning When the main switch is set at " O N " and the operating button is touched or slightly pressed, a slow-shutter-speed warning will beep if the camera sets (in P or A mode) or recommends (in M mode) a shutter speed of 1/30 second or slower. Though the actual danger of blur from camera or subject movement depends on many factors (p. 44), including your own ability to hold the camera steady, you may wish to use the figure " " as a reference point to gauge the chance of blur.
When a slow shutter speed is unavoidable, use one of the following methods (given in order of increasing steadiness) to prevent blur from camera movement: Hold the camera firmly against your face (in horizontal position, place your thumb between camera and face for support), brace your arm(s) against your body, and spread your feet slightly or lean against a tree, etc. Another way is to kneel on one knee and rest your elbow on the other. Steady the camera against a post or other f i r m , non-vibrating support. Use a minipod or similar device to prop the camera on a table, ledge, etc. Mount the camera on a sturdy tripod.


Besides its pentaprism-mounted silicon photocell for ambient light metering, the X-700 has a second cell located in its mirror compartment to measure through-the-lens (TTL) light reflected from the film during flash exposures with PXseries Auto Electrofl3Shes. Used in program T T L autoflash mode with the X-700 and an MD lens set for P mode, this Minolta Direct Autoflash Metering system allows you to simply compose, focus on a subject in flash range, and shoot. The aperture will be automatically set for you by the camera's flash program. In any-aperture T T L autoflash mode with the X-700 set at " A " , you can open the aperture fully up to obtain maximum flash range, or close it down for greater depth of field. Since light is metered through the lens at the taking aperture during exposure, this mode is ideal for autoflash close-ups, bounce flash, and other creative flash techniques. 50 In both modes, an LED will blink in the viewfinder to indicate if exposure was sufficient, and flash exposures can be lightened or darkened over a wide range by using the camera's exposure-adjustment control. The table at right summarizes how to use PX and other flash units with the X-700. For specific instructions, see the applicable owner's manual.
Connecting flash units Cordless clip-on flash units are attached and electrically connected by simply sliding them into the camera's hot shoe. Sync cords of clip-on or bracket-type units must be plugged into the camera's sync terminal. Bracket-type flash units attach to the camera's tripod socket.

MOTOR DRIVE 1 and AUTO WINDER G With Motor Drive 1 attached, you can capture the action with single-frame or continuous operation at either 2 or 3.5 frames per second. The comfortable handgrip has two operating buttons, each w i t h a Minolta "touch switch", enabling full viewfinder readout for either horizontal or vertical framing. Auto Winder G lets you focus full attention on the creative aspects of photography by freeing you from winding the film after each picture. Continuous sequences up to 2fps are also possible by holding the camera's operating button down. Both units are designed to attach quickly and easily without access caps to remove or store. Their film-advance mechanisms stop automatically at the end of the roll, and film can be easily loaded and unloaded without removing the units. WIRELESS CONTROLLER IR-1 SET The IR-1 infrared transmitter/receiver set lets you trigger the X-700 from up to 60m (about 200 ft.) away for remote-controlled single-frame exposures, continuous sequences, or time exposures. When used with extra receivers, the three-channel transmitter enables independent operation of up to three cameras or groups of cameras, or simultaneous operation of an unlimited number of cameras. 56
