Hello, I am new to this forum but not really new to photography. Just film photography. I have just recently recieved a film camera from my father. It is a Minolta Maxxum 7xi.

It came with a Minolta Zoomxi 0.51m/1.6-3.3ft lense (I think's it's an all-purpose?) (AF 28-105), a Minolta Zoomxi 1.5/4.9ft Macro Lense (AF 100-300), a Minolta Maxxum 5400xi Flash, a Hoya 55mm Skylight (1B), a Toko 62mm Cross Screen, and a Hoya 62mm Skylight (1B).

My question is what is what? And how do I use them? Another question is where can I find info on my camera and it's components?

Thank you, sorry for the newbie questions.

Welcome to the Forum Ryan. Books can, and have been written to answer these questions. They are very broad in scope, and I would say the best thing to do is try to do a bit of research yourself. " Google" is your friend. You will find plenty of info on your topics to keep you busy for a while. When your questions become a little more pointed, bring 'em on..... Unless of course someone wants to have a go at your questions now.
