The ones that get away
I've had several fine cameras that I just haven't been able to connect with. One of those was the Minolta Autocord. There was nothing in particular that rubbed me the wrong way about the camera, and the lens was probably as good as any ever put on a twin lens reflex. I think maybe its arrival just coincided with a low point in my creative efforts. I ran a few rolls of film through the camera, and then it just sat on a shelf for a few months. I finally sent it off to a guy in Israel who had the itch for an Autocord.
