Kodak FilmStock - (PART 02)

Minima is only fitted for 200ft (61m = 8000frames = 05:33 min.) size spool. Construction of the camera makes driving any other spool diameter impossible... which wasn't an issue for me....But...

When I've decided to buy the camera, my biggest challenge was to find the Kodak 200ft Daylight spools which were exclusively designed by Kodak for A-minima camera.

These spools had been discontinued while ago, This deal between Aaton and Kodak abandoned a-minima, and minima owners were basically stuck with this situation.

I was lucky enough to meet with great people who shared their old a-minima filmstocks and some empty spools....For now, problem is solved....

As a solution...Buy 600'- 400' Filmstock from Kodak, and respool them to A-minima cores...This actually costs less and you can pick whichever stock you need.

Filmstocks arrived today !!....Kodak Vision2 & Vision3 stocks, fresh in the fridge...
