Minolta Hi-Matic 7s

I picked up this one in a lot with a Polaroid 250, which turned out to have a corroded battery compartment. I really wanted the Minolta so i didn’t mind. This is a tank of a camera, very solid and a bit heavy, but has a nice feel in the hand.

I don’t think I would choose this to carry around all day, but it’s definitely worth taking out for a day of shooting.

The lens is a very bright Rokkor 45mm f1.8. I shot a roll during a week walking along the beach each morning on LBI to buy breakfast bagels. Shot Neopan 400, mostly on shutter priority automatic exposure mode, with a red 25(A) filter. The camera also goes fully manual.

A couple of the pictures from that roll:
