View Full Version : 60's Minolta Pocket Rangefinder
In the late 60's a friend of mine had a 35mm Minolta rangefinder with a 50mm (I think) fixed collapsable lens, and a leaf shutter (I think).
It wasn't Leica grade, but was of solid metal contruction and reeked of quality. It was a true pocket camera.
Anybody know what I'm talking about?
take a look here:
maybe you'll find the camera there. BTW, I didn't remember that Minolta made Screw Leica copies too, but it seems they did...
I did a bit of research ande it appears that:
a) it was interchangeable Leica screwmount, NOT fixed lens and
b) not a leaf shutter but a Leica style focal plane.
So there are TWO errors in my original post!!!!
So much for 35 year old memories!!!!!!
Thanks for the URL !
I think it was the 35 I design that I remember.
And it seems you can even live those moments again...
But surely not cheaply, and that "for display only" seems a bit suspicious...
Hey, dont tempt me like THAT !
That is 25 % of the cost of a used M6 !!!!
