Minolta-16 MG-S article posted

Unread postby David Kilpatrick » Sat Jan 19, 2008 7:28 pm

I have posted an article on a 1970 Minolta subminiature camera kit I have had for a while stored away. I decided to eBay it along with a dev tank, and before it went, to photograph it properly and write it up.

It either fetched exactly the £99 reserve price or I didn't sell it - can't remember for sure - I suspect I did not sell it and it's still lurking in the studio where it was photographed.

sounds ok david, i looked on ebay there and one is up at about £98.00 sterling,
so i dug this out of the attic
i bought this many many years ago in a second hand shop and have not seen it for at least 20yrs, don,t have a clue how much i paid for it, but i think its now going for sale to someone who might appreciate it more,
it has the camera ,flash,a film, 3 filters , 2 close up lenses, 2 measuring chains, a leather camera case, and little cases for the filters and close ups, and its in the presentation case, might get a nice meal for 2 out of it, will keep you posted , thanks

heres a quick pic of it
