Featured in many spy movies as the document copier of choice, the Minolta 16 subminiature camera is a well crafted piece of photographic history. This is the Model 1, the first version to allow for slip-on filters and other lens accessories.

There is a satisfying “ka-chunk” as the housing is pulled to advance the film, cock the shutter and prepare the camera for firing. When closed, the housing protects the precision components inside.
