My Minolta Hi-Matic 9 Easy Flash is going into major surgery to, hopefully, repair a sticky shutter. The surgeon in charge will be yours truly. This camera was given to me by the owner of a camera shop I frequented in Alabama. Although they specialized in repairing cameras, it was decided that this particular unit was not worth the time and effort required to make it good again. As such, it was presented to me, after I showed them my (beloved!) Argoflex E, upon which I had operated and restored to full health. Hopefully, this operation will go as well... if so, this will be my first rangefinder.
