16mm minolta repairs

  1. I picked up an old MG. The exposure meter isn't responding. Any idea who can repair it ?
     
  2. Try Andrew Britton in the UK.Otherwise Don Goldberg of DAG Camera can be of help.
     
  3. Thanks I wasn't sure if dag looked at minoltas, good to know
     
  4. Alas I don't think anyone will fix these now. For less money and less effort you can find one working, but by the time you have run a couple of films through it who knows?
    As excellent a camera as the MG is the image is 10x14 and both the QT and MG-s 12x17 mm negatives offer a better enlargement. I prefer the MG-s for it's wider range of shutter speeds and aperture and the fix focus lens has never been an issue for me. I have also used the 3 close up lenses on it and on the QT. I can 't tell the difference between the results of the MG-s or QT even when both were used at the same location (one usually with slide film, the other colour negative). Where as Minox BL and C results usually got a comment about the grain no one ever commented that the MGs/QT prints were not from a 35mm camera but often were surprised at the depth of field.
