After long pining for the Rolleiflex T I sold 2 years ago, I finally got a late model (456***) of Minolta Autocord III (directly from Karl Bryan who was very kind and helpful, the camera was part of his collection). The camera shows wear, but is in perfect technical order - everything is smooth, shutter release gives nearly no resistance.
I have just bought a used sun hood (Rollei) and ordered a multicoated KR1.5 filter from Heliopan which I intend to use instead of UV filter (little of warming is always good with color and does not disturb BW
I still have to find some reasonable neck-strap
as the original one (with very dedicated clips) is missing and nearly impossible to find. So if you have some ideas just bring it please! <-
Anyhow - the main point is that I wanted to share my happiness of having a TLR again
... yes - I still do have my Mamiya 6 (and love the results it can produce), but TLR is a matter of heart ..
I will post a few photos of it soon - stay tuned!
