My father inlaw recently gave me an old minolta x-700 film slr. I have only used dslrs, but I thought I'd try my hand at it. Just trying to get any tips or pointers from anyone that uses one may have. Also there are a few lenes: a vivitar 85-205 mm 1:3.8 auto zoom 58mm; a sigma high-speed zoom multi-coated 1:3.5~4 F=80~200 mm; a minolta kit lens md 50 mm 1:2; a vivitar 35mm 1:2.8auto wide angle 52 mm; a soligor auto tele converter 2x; and a cable release. It's just that, to be honest, it's a little foreign to me. As well as I know my way around a dslr I thought it would be a piece of cake, but to my surprise I find myself at a loss often.
