Minolta Hi-Matic G

Minolta Hi-Matic G – The Bare Essentials – by Cosmo Coughlin

A few years ago, I went through a second-hand camera eBay phase. Unfortunately this phase coincided with my post-graduation unemployment phase, which had a drastic effect on the budget I had for such equipment. I would tend to spend £10-30 on a camera, shoot a roll of film with it, be unimpressed and then sell said camera for £10-30. Hardly a great business model. One camera though that surprised me and earned a place in my permanent collection however, was a £20 Minolta Hi-Matic G.
