I would like to thank Minolta corporation, especially in Japan, for giving me the permission to use the text from the 9000 manual. I would also like to thank Minolta Sweden for the great support they give their customers. No, I don't get paid for writing this.
Of course I am most grateful to the people who have taken their time to contribute to the Minolta community with FAQs, how-tos, et cetera. Thanks to Chris Print for his excellent Minolta 9000 FAQ, to Eric Loyd for the Minolta FAQ, and to Bo-Ming Tong for his First Camera FAQ.
I also owe many thanks to people on the Minolta Mailing List who have contributed to this site, not only through published words such as different FAQs, but through tips and tricks freely provided by mail to a great community of Minolta users just out of will to help. Thank you all -- you know who you are.
