    Now, I don't disagree that Maxxums can be great cameras, but I disagree with it being the last one. The bug has bit. Give it a couple months, and you'll have more film cameras than you know what to do with. :wink:

    I'm pretty excited over this. My Mom had this when I was a kid, and I was always fascinated with it, but hers developed a light leak that I didn't want to repair, plus hers was showing some age. I found this one the other day for next to nothing, and it looks like new. The owner said it was hardly used..

    For light leaks, and by now all my Minoltas have light leaks especially from the lower seal, a quick fix is an electrical, black tape. If unsure, use double layer. :D

    I'm not a camera collector. I'm a camera accumulator. I've learned just enough history to appear to have a scholarly interest in them, but I just love to look at the clever technology.

    This is what I have cleaned up and more or less working:

    The presentable ones, that is.

    I think they all have light leaks.. I bought two others for 5 bucks once, and they both had them as well. I got lucky with this one though.

    I picked up this Minox B today. I got the flash attachment some unopened film in the box, and the book. I cleaned it up and everything including the meter seems to be working. I'm going to test it out in a few weeks with some new film if I can find some.
