    i would buy some reusable cassettes
    and a bunch of bulk rolls of film in a heartbeat.
    as 2F said respoolers don't weld the cassettes anyways
    they just tape them shut and keep using the same cassette over
    and over again ...

    i look forward to hearing when it is going to be available.
    im empty, good luck

    I already load my own cassettes with 16mm film so either bulk film or complete cassettes would be welcome. I'm really only interested in B&W since that is the easiest to process. It would be nice to have the option of 100 or 400, but either would be fine.

    If anybody ever made metal reloadable cassettes I would be interested in a few.

    B&W is for me much preferable to colour, as colour has to be sent away for processing and takes somewhere in the region of 10 days to two weeks around here. 110 colour processing also tends to be a bit hit and miss now it's very much a minority requirement. My home sliced film is fine in the Pentax 110s but of course doesn't work in the majority of 110 cameras that need the correct holes to cock the shutter and stop the film advance. That will be the big advantage of a new film for me. I wonder whether the new film will be pre-exposed with frame info, as it used to be, though that's probably not important for many of us.

    110 cameras

    Kodak tried to take over the popular 16mm market from Minolta by coming up with the 110 format. What they did achieve was to kill the 16mm format for serious photograpers. There are serious focusing problems inherent in the 110 cassette design because there is no pressure plate. So 110 became associated with cheap fixed focus point and shoot cameras.

    I agree. I also wish Minolta would have fought back by making their SLR take their own cassette!

    Personally I'd be happy just to have a source of Super-16 Negative film for re-spooling.

    We will consider selling unloaded casettes.
    But they will be the way they are (intended for being welded) so you´ll have to fumble with them.

    The raw film used will be new APX type film and a quality 200 ASA color material.

    Sofar we have not planned for signing (signating) the stripes.

    Thanks for your input.

    Kind regards,

    Mirko

    As I previously stated, I am signed on for 300 m if you do this at a dollar per meter Freestyle retail price. I'd also be interested in about two dozen cassettes.

    I have a Minolta 16mm which my late Father (a serious photographer) purchased in the early 1970's....when he passed it on to me, I remember him complaining that, shortly after he bought it, Kodak produced the 110 format and photo shops apparently soon had no interest in supplying the Minolta films or processing services. I don't think that, then, there were even the mail order suppliers who might have catered for this specialist market.
    (I still have some of his empty film packets, most are Minolta, but a couple are Yashica (contained "repacked Plus-X")....presumably they were interchangable?)

    The russians made a copy of the Minolta 16 called the Kiev-30. The main difference was that the Kiev had a focusable lens. If I remember correctly Minolta cassettes will fit in the Kiev but Kiev cassettes are too big to fit in the Minolta. Anyway you can get one with leather case in the original box for $10 on ebay.
