information from camerapedia.wikia.net:
16 is a sub-miniature camera for 16mm perforated film in re-loadable
cartridges. It was introduced 1949 by the Universal Camera Corp. of
New York, NY, USA, a company perhaps best known for the Univex cameras
of the 1930s. The introduction of the Minute 16 did not prevent the
Corporation from going bankrupt 1952.
chromed metal camera looks like a cine camera with the traditional foldable
frame finder at the top. It has a meniscus lens set deep in an aluminium
lens barrel with a small aperture selector lever marked f6.3 - 11 -
16 next to it. The lever on the right-hand side winds the camera, and
the release push button is situated just above it. A manually reset
frame-counter is just below the lever. A 1/60sec. single-speed semi-cylinder
guillotine shutter is placed behind the lens.
feature is the tripod-socket at the camera base, which doubles as a
flash synch-contact; a rare feature also found on the 35mm SLR Contax
S introduced the same year as the Minute-16. For the especially interested
collector the camera must be in its original box and with its huge flashlight
in the style of a professional strobe with side bracket. The simple,
but quite solidly made camera, is very common on its own.
is a fabulous opportunity to own a complete Minute 16 camera/flash
set in their original boxes and in excellent condition.
