The Minolta-16 MG-S was the flagship of Minolta's subminiature camera series, and the penultimate Minolta 16. In an attempt to compete with the new Kodak 110 film cartridge, it featured a bigger frame size than the earlier Minolta subminis (12×17 vs. 10×14 mm). A further advantage was the choice between manual CdS-meter supported match-needle aperture setting and fully automatic aperture control. A flash cube adapter served as flash device in the camera's standard outfit. Other flashes were available.
