@Timmyjoe,
I think I figured it out. Checking with submin.com it seems that Minolta made a daylight loading developing tank. You left the exposed film in the take up portion of the cartridge with a...

Sneaky Minolta!
In all the years I've been messing about with 16mm still photography I cannot believe I missed this.
I just bought (off of THAT auction site) a Minolta Ps kit. It was a BIN for $17...

Another trick with the 16II is to make changing the aux lenses easier by using thin (about .025 in.) angle aluminum to make a plate in front of the lens that has a slot to accept the slip on lenses....

Here's an idea,
Get another 16II, they are cheap, disassemble the camera and move the lens .007 inch closer to the film plane. Trust me, I've had them apart, there are ways to do this. Then you will...

That looks great. Very small grain and smooth at screen resolution.
Just found my Mamiya 16 Super, it was ‘lost’ in my pile of boxes of camera stuff. Also found my Eastman 16mm Double-X so now...

Funny thing is, the 16Ps always work, at least every one I've handled. Much simpler camera of course, no meter or focusing. The 25mm f3.5, 3 element in 3 group lens is a bit narrow angle for 10X14mm...

Thank's Tim. The Nikon Coolscan was a top quality scanner if I recall. I've never had a film scanner but have used my DSLR + older macro several times, usually at f8 or f5.6. The devil in my set up...

The best results I have obtained converting 10X14mm B&W negatives into a digital form was using a 55mm f2.8 Vivitar macro lens adapted to my Olympus E410. That lens will focus at 1:1 so a field size...

Sorry Tim, I was commenting on the samples put up by Kenzie, but forgot to mention that. Your prints are fine and mirror the 5X7 results I get out of my 16II, if I'm careful. My major problem is that...

The examples posted don't look as sharp as I've seen from a 16P or Ps Minolta. Don't know if this is a scanning issue or the negs are soft. The 16P is fixed focus at 5m (16.4 ft.) and at f3.5, wide...

My Double-X negs do not have as much grain as the OP's samples, overall resolution is a little better also. I use HC-110 at 60:1 dilution as a one shot, 10~11 minutes at 68~70F with 5 sec. agitation...

I've been shooting these little Minolta submini's for years. I really like the 16II best. Such a sturdy and simple camera. Only disadvantage is the fixed focus lens and the fiddly distance and close...
