The Minolta Autocord
I’ve had this Minolta Autocord for so long I don’t remember where I got it. Or when, exactly.
My Minolta Autocord
Mine is a model RG-2 from 1962 with the Optiper-MVL shutter. I don’t know much else about the camera other than it’s fun but challenging to use. I keep thinking about taking it out for a spin but haven’t done that in a few years.
There’s more info about the Autocord at camera-wiki.org
Here’s an example from the camera. It’s me trying a self-portrait while wearing Mario jammies of course.

And then there’s this crazy thing…
