You can instantly set the camera to Program mode and single-frame drive mode by pressing the Program Reset Key. Exposure adjustment is automatically canceled, also. And now you're ready to shoot !
Center your subject in the focus frame and press the camera's operating button halfway green focus signal in the viewfinder (accompanied by an audible signal, if so desired) glows when the subject is in focus.
Now press the operating button all the way down to complete taking your photograph; the Minolta 7000's focus-priority autofocus system releases the shutter only when the subject is in focus. The camera now automatically advances the film to its next frame.
At the end of the film roll, the film counter on the data panel will blink to indicate end-of-roll (the camera will also emit an audible signal if so set).
Automatic film rewinding is begun by holding down the rewind release (R) button and sliding the rewind switch to the left, Now the "FILM" indication in the data display blinks during rewinding.
Rewinding automatically stops after the film has been completely rewound.
