After the success of the Konan cameras for 16mm film the Minolta-16 for Chiyoda's 16mm film cartridges had been introduced in 1956 or 1957. It took 10×14mm sized exposures through a Rokkor 1:3.5/25mm lens. It had a push/pull cocking mechanism for film advance and winding up the shutter, an exposure counter, a flash-synchronized 3-speed slider shutter, and even choice between five apertures. It was very small but weighed 150 g. Ancillary lenses were mountable as well as filters. It was sold together with two nearness lenses and a leather case.

In 1960 the Minolta-16 II followed, with faster 1:2.8/22mm lens and more shutter speeds, with B-setting. A distance lens that allowed sharp infinity exposures at any aperture was added to the available accessories. Its camera body was equal to that of its predecessor.

For the Minolta-16 models Chiyoda had changed the film cartridges. Midroll film exchange was no more possible with the new cartridges.

A clamp with accessory shoe was available.
