    Above picture taken after a cleaning session. It was covered with dust but
    working nicely, even at the slow speeds and the lens is clean.

    Is the focus hood there ?

    Nice camera and a great price !!!

    I enjoy using my old TLR's especially myYashicamat, I bought it on a whim and now find it'd my most used camera, just need to print some of the 50+ films I've put through it.

    I hope your going to use this one :D

    The Minolta Autocord represented great bang for the buck when introduced as a lower-priced alternative to the Rolleis. Mine was bought back then. It's still going strong, though I'm scheduled to replace the leatherette on the camera and have re-stitched the case.
