Question about Cameras

Film, Battery change, value

This camera was my fathers and I am trying to figure out how to use it. It is a Minolta 16 MG - mint condition - Serial # 140554. How do I find out what film it takes and how to replace the batteries and what it might possibly be worth? I will hold on to it as a collectable, but still want to find out as much as I can about it.

My Polaroid AutoFocus 660 burns all my pictures, why? (I have tried using new film, it's not the film)

Burns?? could it be that what your seeing is a "corona" (brown ,with white and orange ) if so I bet your film compartment is letting in light , this happens on vintage equipment because they used velour type material as seal on film door and other places and it drys out over time and allows light in

also is your shutter working properly ??(clik don't mean working) a mt camera with film door open shown toward light source shouldn't allow light thru , wouldn't be the first vintage shutter that ive ever heard of sticking

No these camera do not have batteries. The battery comes within the film packet, which I might add are quite expensive these days. If you would like some places to get film just use the comment button and I'll help you with that too.

Thanks for using Fixya.

PS. Your best bet might be to consider selling them on ebay. Some collectors out there may be interested if they are in as good a condition as you say.

Minolta Maxxumm 4 - rewinding too soon

Hey Pix4me,
I would make sure that the manual rewind button on the back of the camera is not stuck in, or you're not accidentally hitting the manual rewind button. I hope this helps!

Go Ahead. Use Us.
