    Polarizer for a Minolta Autocord TLR 6x6?

    Does anyone know where to get a polarizer for my nifty, new-to-me, Minolta Autocord 6x6?

    BTW, this is my first foray into MEDIUM FORMAT!!!!

    Thanks!

    I remember when I looked info about using Pls in TLRs that Minolta made an acessory Polariser that covered both lenses. Minoltapol or something like that was called.
    It's probable that it has reached collector status nowadays.

    They exist. I have one. Made by Minolta.

    A bunch of Nikons; Feds, Zorkis and a Kiev; Pentax 67-II (inherited from my deceased father-in-law); Bronica SQ-A; and a nice Shen Hao 4x5 field camera with 3 decent lenses that needs to be taken outside more. Oh, and as of mid-2012, one of those bodies we don't talk about here.

    Favourite film: do I need to pick only one?

    Yep, i knew Minolta made and the name as "Autopole", but was hoping to see some advice about where (if?!?) to buy:

    a) an original Autopole (i'm guessing well neigh impossible...)
    b) another TLR "bay1" brand polarizer that would fit
    c) an off-brand/after-market solution

    Looks like it's back to unicorns.....

    You could always buy another one and just hold it over the lens while shooting.

    Hey mrred - now thats an EXCELLENT idea!!! THANKS!

    In fact, i have a 49mm polarizer that is rarely used (a nice Hoya too!) and i'd bet i could rig a way to get it to mount/stay on.

    Yahoo!!!

    THANKS MRRED!

    if you are going that far, maybe you should think about Cokin or Lee. The filters would be of a more manageble size that would fit over both lens., Even handheld, would be easier. It would be easier to justify as you can use the filter(s) on your other cameras...

    Just a thought...
