Minolta Maxxum 400si 35mm Is this a good camera? My husband and I are thinking about buying one used for our daughter who wants to get into photography. We found what looks like a good deal but I don't...

The Miinolta 400 si SLR 35 mm is an excellent camera for a beginner as well as the seasoned photographer. It has a complete automatic mode for the point & shoot picture taker as well as manual modes if you want to favor shutter speed over aperature or aperature over shutter speed. I've had one for years and have gotten excellent results.

I need a battery for my Minolta Maxxum 400 si 35mm SLR film camera

You need one 2CR5 lithium cell for your camera. They're still available, see here for details. Note that other suppliers stock them as well, I only link to the supplier provided as they're where I buy mine and the page shows you alternative model numbers that the battery is sometimes known by.

Aperture not working smoothly [MINOLTA MAXXUM 7]

Sounds like the aperture control mechanism is bad (Minolta Maxxums are famous for this problem). I would recommend sending the camera to Sony for repair (Sony now owns Minolta's photographic departments). I've been repairing the Minolta Maxxum cameras for over 15 years and I prefer to send the Maxxum 7 in for this repair do to Minolta's difficult design of this camera.

Minolta Maxxum 7000 35mm SLR Camera not working

Dear Minolta friends,
I have recently bought a second hand Maxxum 7000 and a AF lens, but found the body not ocntrolling the aperture while shooting. I know 7000 has someting special. Is my problem is due to lens and body compatibility or actually the malfunction of the body. I am sure the AF lens is ok since i have tried it working with another minolta af body.
Can give me an advice?
