Thrift Shoppin’ – Minolta Hi-Matic F Rangefinder

Hello again,

Got lucky today. Whenever I get bored I’ll hit up the local thrift stores to see if I can find some cool clothes or whatever. In the back of one they had an old Minolta Rangefinder, a Hi-Matic F to be more exact. For the cheap price of $8 I gladly bought it. It’s in working condition but I need to get a new battery since you can’t really use mercury batteries anymore so I’ve got that on order.

The camera is real cool and has a really solid feel to it. It has a 38mm f2.7 Rokkor Lens so I’m pretty eager to use it. It’ll be a little easier to carry around when compared to the AE-1 and I’ve got a Canonet 28 that should come in the mail this week so it’ll be cool to see how they compare in photo quality and build.

Here’s some photos and whenever I get a battery in it I’ll be sure to post some photos taken by it:
