Minolta 16 Film & Processing Service

Keep shooting with your Minolta 16 camera! Cassette reloading and processing service is available as outlined below.

Cassette Reloading

For film reloading send your cassettes to the address below with payment in check, MO or cash, and add $5.00 for return shipping via priority mail. Payment must be made to: Tim Verthein. Turn around time on reload orders is generally 24 hours.

Minolta 16 Film Processing

Simply send exposed films to address below with appropriate payment. Turn around time on processing is generally 72 hours.

15V Batteries for Minolta Flash

I also have available the little square 15 volt batteries that fit many of the Minolta flash units. These are fresh Eveready 504/NEDA 220 batteries. They also are used in many other flash units of the era. Price is $7.50 each. No additional shipping if ordered with film or processing, otherwise add $3.50 shipping.

AG1 and AG1-B Flashbulbs

I usually have a good stock of AG1 (clear) and AG1-B (blue) flashbulbs for the Minolta 16 flash attachments. Price is $8.00 per dozen, in original boxes. Brands vary, but are usually Sylvania or General Electric. As usual shipping is $5.00, and if ordered with any other items or processing one shipping cost covers it all. PLEASE INQUIRE FIRST before ordering flash bulbs, as stock varies from day to day. Just e-mail to confirm availabilty for the type and quantity you want to order. Take note the cost of flashbulbs is rising! Flashbulbs.com, a major supplier of bulbs is now charging $25.00 for a pack of AG1 bulbs! I will try to hold our prices as is for as long as possible, but these are no longer being manufactured and will someday be all gone!

Minolta 16 Film Cassettes

I generally DO NOT have film cassettes available for sale. Reloading prices above are for reloading your cassettes that you send me. However, I do from time to time have some cassettes available, and offer them for sale at $15.00 each. I ONLY sell genuine cassettes, either those made by Minolta or by other reputable manufacturers at the time the cameras and film were current stock. There are some questionable recently made Minolta 16 cassettes available and circulating. I DO NOT sell those. They have a reputation for poor fit, light leaks and easy breakage. I ONLY sell REAL cassettes, manufactured by film companies. You can be assured when you buy a cassette from me it is not of the "home made" variety. Please e-mail to inquire about the availability of film cassettes.
