Minolta 16 - Cartridge
MINOLTA 16 Cartridge
One MINOLTA 16 CARTRIDGE for re-loading and shooting in your Minolta 16 Spy camera.
Cartridge DOES NOT include film (available separately). Each cartridge is 3D printed by The FPP and requires that you load film before shooting. This cartridge will only fit Minolta 16 cameras (or cameras that accept the Minolta 16 cartridge). We do not accept returns on this item.
What film can I use?
We recommend our Minolta 16 film.
Load your cartridges in total darkness (Dark room or film changing bag). Approx 17 inches of film will give you 20 exposures in your Minolta 16 camera.
Regarding handling and avoiding light leaks - The cartridge needs to be handled in dim or no light. Before and after removing it from the camera, the film should be stored in a black bag. When in your camera, consider using light tight tape in case your camera leaks light.
The bottom line. With no current mold-injected plastic cartridges available, our 3D printed cartridge is not perfect but will work. Many customers add light traps and will further sand down parts for better performance.
