Minolta Autocord

The Autocord was an instance where I was done by an eBay seller. A supposedly undamaged set of lenses had significant scratches. But I accepted it because it was cheap enough to be a project.

Its problems include:

  • Scratched viewing and taking lenses.
  • Missing Knob and scale for the focusing rack.
  • Twisted back that would not sit correctly
  • Crack in corner of ground glass
  • Missing catch for viewer 

This picture is near to restoration but I will never have a focusing scale.

Some test shots taken with the Autocord during part of the restoration are remarkably clear for a camera with a damaged lens.
