    Lens adapter?

    Lens adapter?
    Good morning all.

    I'm new to this forum, but have dabbled in photos for quite a while now.

    In the mid 90's, when my daughter was born, we purchased a Minolta Maxxum, 500si to record her journey thru life. It was a great film camera, and I amassed many lenses for it. It was auto focus.

    Enter the digital age. We had a point and shoot 8 meg, then a Canon PowershotPro 1. The Canon worked very well for many years, until it developed a spec on the interior of the lens that Canon would not fix....

    Enter the cell phone camera age, and my dedicated cameras went by the wayside.

    I'll be 55 this year, and decided that it is time to get back into photography. We've purchased a Nikon D3400 package, with a 18-55 lens, a macro and tele converter, several filters and a case. I've been using it,and learning with it,and frankly, it's amazing in what it can do! The options are endless!

    So here is my question:

    With the Minolta camera, I had 7 lenses, from tele to fish eye. I'd love to be able to use them with the Nikon if it was possible. Is there an adapter that will allow me to do so? If so, where can I get one, and can someone please provide a link ?

    Here are a few shots;
    Learning as I go. Thanks in advance for any and all help!

    Welcome to the forum, i think the Minolta was "A" mount, this could be adapted to Nikon but would
    only give manual everything and not sure what it would do on the D3400.

    I think some sony cameras may work with them.
