Vintage Camera: Minolta Autocord

Confession: I have been bitten by the vintage film camera collection bug. On Saturday, I hit a local estate sale and picked up this little orphan for $10.

Say hello to the 6x6 twin lens reflex Minolta Autocord. Never heard of it? Well, it was it was designed to compete with premium TLR cameras such as the Rolleiflex. Many argue that the Autocord's ergonomics, focusing, and optics are unmatched among TLRs, even the legendary Rollei. It's also a pretty great looking piece of camera history. I'm thrilled to now own one!
