Digital SLR

Hi all
We have a Minolta 400 ( I think its the 400) film SLR with loads of lenses to go with it. I am wanting to buy a Digital SLR but want one I could attach by some method the existing lenses we have for the Minolta. Anyone know of such a camera ?

Hi Paul,
I used to do a lot of photography years ago and while checking out digital SLR's (Canon or Nikon) soon found out that SOME pre-digital lenses would fit Canon SLR's and some would fit but not work!

I would think that the Minolta lenses would fit a Minolta digital SLR but you really need expert advice about that, try contacting Minolta UK or a good camera shop - if there are still such things about

regards

Thanks Martyn. I will probably contact Minolta direct as its at least an hours drive here to get to a camera shop

you can get 'convertors' that would make your old lenses fit a canon,if your lenses are manual apature they will work fine
