Minolta-16 MG set

Minolta 16 MG , Kit

Nice kit in the nice package. My first position as a teacher took place in Polvijärvi near a beautiful small town Joensuu in Eastern- Finland. I felt rich and when I saw this Minolta Kit in local camera store it simply captivated me.

At that time I owned a simple but adequate equipment to make photos at home. A good practice to avoid rather high developing fees for such a rare film / negative size and a good way to keep oneself sleepy during the days.

Minolta 16MG is one of the latest of a long line of Minolta 16mm subminiature cameras. It is very versatile camera with easy operation, slim styling, and compact design.
