Hi all, I recently brought two cameras that I know little about. I wanted to get a nice slr camera so I can take a few shots with film. I brought these two with very little info because the owner of them had passed away. So the things I know. I haven't got them in the mail yet so i'm only going off the photos and the little info I have found out. There were most likely brought from japan in the 60s and brought back to Australia. They have only had one owner from new and i'm guessing they have been looked after. They both have there original case and instruction booklet in Japanese. The only pages that I have found ok info on is here,
Konica Snap - http://camera-wiki.org/wiki/Konica_Snap
Minolta Uniomat - http://camerapedia.wikia.com/wiki/Minolta_Uniomat
One is a Konica and has "snap"on the camera and booklet.I think it's from 1959 and it has it's own case with it's strap and a lens cap. I'm guessing that's rare because I have lost a few caps over the years. It has I think a 1.8 lens on it and that's pretty much all I know about it. There is also this little pouch on the strap and i'm not sure what goes in it.
The second is a Minolta uniomat. I think it's from 1960-1961 but not to sure. It has a rokkor lens but not quite sure what it is. I can't find much info on it but heard it's a nice little camera.
The both look to be in good condition and so does all the stuff that comes with it. I think it comes with a canon light meter and a expansion ring and some kind of filter with strange yellow fluff in a container but if any one knows what any of that stuff is please comment. I'm taking a bit of a risk because I have no idea if they work or if all the parts are there. But still keen to get them and hopefully take some photos. More photos of them.
If any one has any idea what these two cameras are and can share links ect it would be greatly appreciated. Also i'm wondering what the value of them and all the bits that come with it is so I can judge if I paid the right price or not. But basically any info will do.
Thanks for reading.
