I suspect Minolta bet the farm on the US market. I don't think that their gear is all that common in Australia. I do remember that my sister once had a Minolta sir though.

Seventies memories; I recall some female Minolta users proudly saying 'The Creative Machine'. Probably the result of the Minolta ads at that time:

For some reason that struck me then as wishful thinking but years later my oddest 3D printed concepts, the tele/wide twin lenses with Sony FE mount, got the 'Instamatic Art' as their project name. The idea that composing two images in one take on the scene itself should be superior to similar PS jobs. Of course as wishful as the above.

BTW, I liked the Minolta font design of that time and someone extended that to the whole alphabet for an open source font. I have used it several times.

No photographer's gear list is complete without the printer mentioned !
