    Whoa...is this really Adoplh Hitler's Minolta? No, Hitler probably would have bombed the Minolta factory if he had owned this one, but for $5 plus the actual cost of shipping it can be all yours. Why so cheap? It doesn't work. The shutter tries to work...will work fine on B and will try to work on O setting, but those are the only two times it works. If you're really good or if you've overserved yourself some adult beverages, I suppose you could take all your pictures using the B setting. But for this afternoon, let's call it a parts camera and leave it at that. Battery door is present, rewind knob is present...really the whole camera seems to be here. On cold or rainy night, I'll bet you'll have fun trying to fix it. If questions, please send to me at jon_goodman@yahoo.com

    Now if there were some of Hitler's undeveloped film still remaining inside, I'd be all over it...

    This post brought back a few memories. In the 80's, I used to help a friend sell photo equipment at those hotel camera shows. At about 50% of the shows, some guy (always a different guy) would try to sell us an old, beat up Leica. Each one "used to belong to Hitler's dentist". He must have had very good teeth, as he had a lot of dentists...

    No - it's Mister Hilter. He's standing for the North Minehead bye-election, as the National Bocialist candidate.

    Well, North Minehead is Conservative, you know. And historically, Taunton's part of Minehead already.

    I am not sure i get why this is amusing, or the least bit a light conversation piece, with the risk of causing what this article so clervrly discusses - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reductio_ad_Hitlerum i would say that this has started in bad taste, and projected yet more of the awful taste APUG yackers sometimes have when they are not listing the gear they own.

    It's amusing to make fun of Hitler-related 'collectables' - why anyone would pay top $$ for those, given their awful associations, or (more often) unlikely legitimacy is a mystery... Through humour, we can (sometimes) survive awfulness and belittle meanness...

    Marc!

    I must be the only idiot who fails to see anything humerus in any of the above posts. In fact i find them extremely offensive, and even more then that, that most of the above posts are jokes about the invasion of poland in reference to a camera. If you find anything funny there you need to reed the link i posted above. either way - what a waste of energy.

    krifartida - look up "Monty Python." They did what some of us think is a very funny sketch about "Mr Hilter". You'll find a couple of us quoted part of the sketch.

    That was all.

    It all started with conntecting a XD11 to Hitler where in fact is no connection at all. Why?

    Simply bad taste.

    The OP should have stuck to peddling his cameras. Very surprised the mod squad didn't intervene considering the reference.

    Yes, incredibly bad taste. Has the camera sold yet? Because I'd like to delete this thread.

    It's been up since Friday, so perhaps you can ask Goodman to relist sans sad stabs at humor?

    Monty Python, seriously? The reference to MP as some sort of defense of this thread is the only thing remotely approaching humor I have seen so far ...

    I was just going to post and ask Jon if I could hire him as a pitch man, until I got to this page and saw that underoos were in knots.
