Minolta 16 - Cartridge

  • $12.99

MINOLTA 16 Cartridge
One MINOLTA 16 CARTRIDGE for re-loading and shooting in your Minolta 16 Spy camera.

Please READ all the information on this page and acknowledge TERMS before purchasing.

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.

Regarding handling and avoiding light leaks - TERMS - The cartridge needs to be handled in dim or no light. They are NOT completely light tight (the 3D printed cartridge may have pinhole leaks). 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. We do not accept returns on our 3D printed Minolta 16 cartridges. (Use care in handling and you will get satisfactory results.)

Breakage - DO NOT force the cartridge into your camera. The cartridge must be flush in order to close the film compartment door - the inner gears must line up. If you force it - it will break. SEE this video clip on this issue HERE.

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.

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.
