Minolta AL
The photos in this set were taken with a recent find, which Brandon received as a gift from his old bike-building buddy, Graeme, who used it extensively, I am told, in the 60s and 70s.
This cool little rangefinder came out in 1961, with a Minolta Rokkor-PF 45mm lens (1:2), and a nifty selenium-cell meter, which you read from the top.
My particular specimen is in really good nick with all the parts intact and working (thanks, Brandon!). Anyway, I am no camera buff, but this one really took my fancy... I love lining up the two images in the viewfinder, before clicking.
Here are some sites that will tell you more about the camera:
