An Afternoon with the Autocord II

An Afternoon with the Autocord II

Browse the dollar bin in comfort outside an old record shop on Queen Street West, Toronto. First test roll of my father-in-law's old Minolta Autocord II. Seems to be functioning well, though it could be a little bit light-leaky because the cork, which would normally seal up the back near the take-up spool, has disintegrated. Will be running a colour roll through tomorrow to check that a little more. Home-processed black and white roll #11 (developer: Rodinal).

    @clickiemcpete Yeah, I'm pleased. Some digging tells me this model is ca. 1966, and we're pretty sure it hasn't had a roll of film through it in over 30 years. Considering I wasn't all that sure what I was doing, I'm happy anything came out!
