Minolta 16 II Spy Camera w/ Case and Close-Up Lenses #1 and #2
Lovely example of a Minolta 16 II subminiature spy camera. Developed in 1960, this amazing little (tiny) camera is equipped with the Rokkor 22mm f/2.8 (16) lens, ranked in the top 10 lenses ever fitted to a sub-miniature camera by the people at subclub (http://www.subclub.org/library/top10.htm). With fixed focus, a very pleasing minox-style push/pull film advance, and shutter speeds ranging from Bulb (B) to 1/500 of a second, this is the perfect camera for the aspiring secret agent or sub-mini enthusiast. Focuses up to 21 inches with included Close up Auxillary Lenses No. 1 and No. 2 (not shown).
The camera is in spectacular condition with practically no visible signs or wear and clean, inside and out. The film advance is buttery smooth, the lens looks clean and clear, aperture blades are clean and camera fires at all shutter speeds. The case does show some wear but the leather is still incredibly supple and it is completely structurally sounds.
