TLR

Another camera I've been lucky to inherit is this Minolta Autocord from the early 60s. The leather covering on it was in pretty bad shape so along with getting it cleaned and fixed up I got a Deep Jade leather kit from Camera Leather. I was also lucky to find a hood and UV filter from a local used camera store, Camera Heaven. Definitely the place to go in San Francisco for rare photographic accessories.



I've shot a few rolls through it with one to scan. Still getting a feel for this camera. Here's a shot from Coronado Beach in San Diego. With a negative 4 times the size of 35mm, the details are great. Scans much easier, too. The square format also makes for interesting compositions.
