This is an used, made in Japan, Autocord CDS III from around 1966. This is the last model made by Minolta of its line of TLR cameras and it includes all features and state-of-the-art technology of that time. It features the iconic 4-element, Tesar like, Rokkor lenses, 75mm f/3.2 viewer and 75mm f/3.5 taken lenses and the also famous and very reliable Citizen-MVL shutter with speeds 1s to 1/500s plus bulb. This model features a CDS meter and option for 120 or 220 film.
The camera is fully functional. All features works, from accurate shutter speeds and aperture, to light meter. All knobs and lever works and are smooth, including focus lever. I'm including a battery for the meter. It shows low wear for a camera of this age and it doesn't have cracks, bends, dings or dents. The leatherette is intact and the lenses are very clean, without signs of fungus, scratches or haze, and only minor particles of dust can be seen trough the light. The camera has been tested and it works as it should. Last four pictures are samples taken with this camera and color negative film for reference.
