Another tip: Don't rub your fingers over the film splitter in the dark! Oh, the horror!
This round I'm testing the Minolta-16 (version I). I just received the EE II and am trying to exercise the evil spirits from the shutter. I have the Minolta-16II on order which is supossedly new/unused. I really need the extra shutter speeds.
I found a tank in storage that had several reels that adjust down to 16mm. It worked fine, but I'm going to remove those silly ball-bearings that they put it the start of the reel. They make loading difficult.
