As they devoured their Chinese fare, the lively discussion between the two often turned into heated exchanges, as both tried to best each other.
Camera Models: Minolta Autopak 460Tx (1979) and Minolta-16 MG (1966)
Similarities: Both are Minolta made products that shoot a 16mm wide film stock, albeit using different cartridges.
Differences: The 460Tx uses perforated 110 film, has adjustable focus and aperture, but a seemingly constant shutter speed. The 16 MG offers fixed focus, with an integrated sliding filter for closer focus. Aperture and shutter on the 16 MG are both adjustable, albeit on a scale resembling a program exposure.
Film Shared: Lomography Orca 110BW, fresh dated.
As the popularity of film photography increased, and the capabilities of photographic film improved, the decades from the 1930's onward increasingly sought ways to improve on the portability of cameras while still providing versatility and good image quality. The miniaturization of cameras hit a certain stride in the later part of the 20th century, with many cameras easily fitting into pockets to have at the ready at any time.
