The return of the Hi-Matic

Two years ago my dad gave me this excellent condition Minolta Hi-Matic 7s, this camera belonged to a deceased grand uncle of mine.

Minolta Hi-Matic 7S

The fellow is as old as me, and onece loaded with an Alkaline battery and a roll of film it worked like a charm and the meter is spot on.

See the camerapedia page

I try to shot a couple of rolls a year with this kind of poor man’s Leica and got some nice shots like this one I called “envy” (Film :Fuji Accross 100ASA)


Or this summer shot in Cagnes sur Mer in France

Le port du Cros

(Film :Kodak Gold 200ASA)

Earlier this month I dug it from the dry (tupperware) box, cleaned loaded and shot a roll of Tmax around town; that will be for the next post

Meanwhile you can see a few more shots on flickr
