Minolta rangefinder camera pasted leather!
Because we can’t speak english
I am using DeepL translate, so it may be a strange sentence,
but I would like you to understand
In this issue, we would like to introduce the pasted leather of minolta’s rangefinder film compact camera released in 1966.
minolta HI-MATIC ９ (Reference product)
The paste leather of the HI-MATIC 9 is designed with rounded corners and a horizontal pattern.
The paste leather bracket on the front surface is not attached.
The pasted leather at the hinge of the film chamber is also pasted without peeling or lifting, although no brackets are attached.
On the opposite side, the film chamber opening has the same design pasted leather firmly affixed to the opening and closing levers.
The rear film chamber lid has the same pattern of pasted leather as the front, but is firmly attached by brackets that are slightly rounded at the top and bottom.
In this issue, we introduced the paste leather of a minolta rangefinder film compact camera released in 1966.
This camera is covered with an orthodox but narrow rounded pattern design.
It is hard to believe that this camera is very much about 60 years old, and thanks to the adhesive technology and brackets, it remains in beautiful condition.
This column has once again made me realize how wonderful Japanese-made film cameras are.
We will continue to write columns on various interesting aspects and designs of film cameras in the future, so please look forward to them!
