Don't cringe when you see it. It's actually interesting.

The thing about Minox 8X11 and Minolta 16 is that they are very ‘hands on’ , you really should expect to do your own film loading, processing, and scanning, (or optical printing, if that is your thing), plus film slitting for the Minox and for the 16 also if you cannot find acceptable films in stock.
Over 25 years I’ve acquired all the items needed so that now my film cost is less than $1 per 20 exposure roll for my Minolta 16. If you tried to buy all the things I have now they would run over $500, at least.
