Hello! I recently purchased the minolta autopak 8 d6, but don't really know how to activate the daylight filter. I haven't put any film in yet but I still want to know how to activate and de-activate its filter. Thanks!

Hello! Can I use Kodak Vision-3 50D super8 for my Minolta Autopak-8 D6? I don't quite understand the auto-film speed function.

I think you have to pull it one stop. Have a look at this video, and read the description, someone shot 50D with a D6: Minolta D6 test.

Hello! What’s the difference between the Autopak 8 K series and the D series? Is one more superior than the other ? Thanks for the help!
Show reply
JohnRicky - July 2, 2020
The K series was the first range of super 8 cameras Minolta made, up until 1969. The D series were made from around 1970 until 1977. D cameras are lighter and more modern, so I would definitely go for a D camera :-)

What modern film would be compatible with a minolta autopak.

Hi, what model do you have?

AndreasJohn - March 16, 2020
I have the minolta autopak 8 s3. I was looking at purchasing Fomapan R100 Black and White Transparency Film. Confused between double standard 8mm and double super8. Thanks so much!
Show reply
JohnAndreas - March 16, 2020
I'm afraid you can't use Fomapan R100 film in your camera, because it doesn't fit, literally ;-). You need super 8 cartridges, for example made by Kodak. Double super-8 (and standard 8mm) is on a reel and is 16mm. wide. You can read about this here. Good news is your camera takes the more common super 8 cartridge!

Thanks so much for the info! I went ahead and ordered: Kodak Tri-X Black-and-White Reversal Film #7266 (Super 8, 50' Roll)

Fantastic, good choice and good luck with your movie! Remember, there are only about 3 minutes on one cartridge, so choose your shots wisely... ;-)
