Minolta Cartridge Camera

This old monster was a gift from my grandpa, I believe. It's very very old, and has seen some good use in it's time - Central Oz & Mt. Stromlo, at least - although of course these days it's pretty archaic. The quality of those tiny cartridge films was never too crash hot, and I had a rather unfortunate disaster on Central with this camera - at the top of Uluru it jammed. I thought it was broken, so I gave up on it. It was only on the last day of the trip, from memory - some several days at least later - that I thought to try a new film. And it worked fine, of course. But I lost all the photos I would have taken during that time. Not happy.
