Vintage MINOLTA-16 MG KIT SUBMINIATURE SPY CAMERA FLASH FILTERS
- Source: eBay
Up for sale is a Minolta-16 MG Subminiature spy camera. The camera looks to be in excellent condition. Minolta introduced a new and much smaller model, the 16 MG, in 1966. It lacked automatic exposure, but included a light meter and match-needle that were almost as easy to use and offered the added bonus of manual exposure control. The aperture and shutter speed were set at the same time using a single "exposure" dial. The meter was a selenium unit, which did not require a battery and hence allowed the camera to be made smaller. This classic cold war era camera is a must have for any camera collection.
