TABLE: Maximum Capacity of Minox Cassette

Discussion in 'Minox' started by mtc photography, Dec 20, 1998.

  1. Film thickness and cassette capacity
  2. Different type of Minox 8x11 film has different thickness, the thinner the film, more exxposures can be packed in one cassette. The following is a table for maximum capacity of Minox (or Acmel ) plastic cassette, with 10mm spool.

    Agfa APX 25/100/400
    Minopan 25/100/400 52 65
    Agfa Copex Rapid 58 72

    • Don't pack Minox cassette to maximum capacity, unless you can attach film lead to the spool very tight; otherwise, uneven tape may add to the diameter of spool, you may not get the maximum, and jam the camera. It is wise to leave some leeway.
    • Remember frames beyond 50 for Minox A/B , and frames beyond 36 for Minox C/LX/TLX/CLX/EC will have wider than normal spacing.
    • Thin film may have little frame spacing at the beginning.
    • Don't use too thick film in Minox cassette.
