Quantity Views Date Posted

Asking Price Shipping Amount Condition
On Hold ($230.00) $15.00 Great

2 different Minolta Autocord TLRs:

Both camera fully overhauled. Stripped down and everything cleaned and adjusted. Focus system, of course; wind system; shutter. Aperture and shutter dial system stripped of old oil and cleaned. New mirror. Original focus screen, cleaned. Viewing and taking lenses aligned. New covering, Griptac which is the best handling material for TLRs in my experience.

Both are the Seikosha MX shutter models, 10-bladed apertures.

SOLD: 1) $270- no meter, in great user condition. I was using this for close to a year so I know it works well! Lens is very clean. Comes with original lens cap and a cheap plastic hood because you just should with a TLR.

SOLD: 2) $230- selenium meter, which WORKS and is accurate but should be considered an oddity because, well, it's a 60 year old selenium meter. This lens has a very small bubble in the glass (first time I've seen this in an Autocord) and three light scratches that show only in backlighting. Other than that lens is very clean. I took a series of shot with sun at edge or in frame and couldn't see any veiling from the flaws. Comes with a plastic lens cap and a cheap plastic hood.

Shipping for either Autocrod is $15 US, other inquire.

PAYMENT PENDING: Bell & Howell Dial 35 (US market label for the Canon Dial 35-2):

A fun half-frame camera from the 1960s in very good condition with case and filters. The camera is clean with minimal marks. Interior is clean, no light leaks. Meter works well- has default automatic exposure (shutter priority) with manual settings possible. Comes with 2 batteries, modern ones so you might need to fine-tune ASA setting in the beginning. Focus is smooth and accurate, scale on both exterior and through viewfinder. Viewfinder is clean. Lens is clean.

AND!! The winder works well and is strong. You turn the black knob on the bottom of the camera to wind up the spring motor. Then when you release the shutter button, film is automatically wound to next frame. It makes a great grab shot camera.

A solid mainly mechanical camera

[NOTE: the silver bug soft release shown in photos is NOT part of the package. SOrry, forgot to remove it for photos)

Comes with a 48mm skylight filter (shown in photos), 48mm ND2 and Orange filter, 48 to 49 adapter, 49mm XO green-yellow filter. Original case in good condition.

As you might tell from the filters, I used it for six months with Tri-X film. Developed in Rodinal, had a great time. But now that exploration of grain in the digital age is out of my system and I am back to 6x9 film. I can see this sitting in the drawer for years if I don't get it into the hands of someone else to use it.

$90 plus shipping. US shipping $8.50, others inquire.
