This interesting little Minolta Uniomat has just arrived, bought for US$10.00 equivalent on The Famous Auction's Australian site. I'd hoped it might be a working camera, if the usual slightly overblown sales pitch was to be believed, but there a few problems. This camera apparently has only one set of blades, which double as both aperture and shutter. It works on a programmed EV system, something like 1000th second at f1:16 to 1 second at f1:2.8. It's consequently a little difficult to see exactly what the system is doing; while the shutter functions smoothly I suspect the speed is remaining constant as the EV scale is altered, though the aperture changes with the adjustment. Any information regarding this somewhat odd set-up would be welcome, but I guess I'll just have to run a film through it to find out if the exposures are actually varying. The old selenium meter still reacts to light, but manages to move the pointer to only about half-way across the scale in full sunlight. Just below the photocell, on the front of the camera, is a little screw (see pic). It requires the proper spanner to move it, but I'm curious to know if it has any relationship with the light meter, perhaps in a calibration or adjustment function. Any ideas? It's not an easy camera to find anything about, but it's very nicely made and cosmetically excellent, and I'd like to get it up and running. Any help would be appreciated.
