    Minolta 16

    After seeing Minolta 16 interest in the Minox thread thought I would start a Minolta 16 thread. I will start by saying that I have a 16Ps, and a 16QT but no film for them. Do others use them and have suppliers for film and processing.

    These cameras were designed to use 16 mm film. In order to match all of the models this must be perforated on one side only. To use the cameras you will need to have a least one Minolta cassette. Minolta sold film for these cameras but now you must load your own cassettes and develop your own film. These cassettes can be hard to obtain and can have a high asking price. Some years ago there was a man selling new cassettes of VERY shoddy construction so be careful what you buy. Non-perforated 16 mm microfilm can also be used with special developers. There is also a russian version of these cameras. However the cassettes made for them a slightly too large to fit the Minoltas. But Minolta cassettes will fit the russian camera. You cannot use 110 film because of the pre-exposed frames lines.

    Hi,
    I'm not into movie cameras, but I have a color filter set for Minolta-16(ll) if anyone would like it it's free you just pay shipping. It looks like its from the 60's, comes with nice cardboard box, and a circular filter holder, there are three color filters in it all little square types, w/ metal frames. Each one in its own slot, kinda cool.
    One is a 80A, an 81b or 818? And the last appears to be a skylight. All three appear new. And is made by minolta. let me know if interested!
    Thanks,
    2bits

    Knowing the PO they may want to charge me about $4 or 5 to ship it.

    Hi, When I had my 16, it looks like you can reload 110 film in the cassettes.

    Tried this once and it was a failure. The 110 film already has film frame lines imprinted on it. There is no way to line these up correctly in the Minolta.

    You can also get 16mm unperforated microfilm. This film will require a special developer such as Perfection XR-1 or H&W Control.

    I bough my cassette via a link on the sub club about a year ago.

    Goat Hill Photo, or something like that, in Texas.

    Smooth transaction, goods delivered in a timely manner, exactly as advertised.
    my real name, imagine that.

    Goat Hill Photo is great for slit film; I haven't tried their splitters. You can use 16mm movie film. Also microfilm; here's an approach I got from a Subclub user some time ago. It's for Agfa Copex microfilm at ISO 50, but best to avoid high contrast situations:

    Mix a Sodium Sulfite solution of 2 oz Sodium Sulfite to 1 liter of water. Mix 2.5mm of HC-110 (concentrate, not stock solution) to 200ml of Sodium Sulfite solution. Develop for 6 min at 68 degrees F with agitation every 30 seconds.
