Product Update - Minolta RP600Z

Product status: Discontinued

The Minolta RP600Z was released as a brand new product around 1990. The RP600Z was intended to replace the aging Minolta RP-502 and RP-503 systems and compete in the marketplace against Canon rivals like the MP50 and MP60 . The RP600Z was mechanically almost identical to the RP-503 except for the optics section and electronics. The paper take-up, transport, imaging section and fuser were almost identical.

The Minolta RP-600Z was also sold as the Bell & Howell ABR-2000 and the ALOS Z-40.  The current market status of the RP-600Z is that of a discontinued product with very few replacement parts or supplies available from Minolta or aftermarket sources.

Most users of the Minolta RP-600Z had microfiche, while relatively few had the optional motorized roll film carrier 10.

Newer and more modern Microfilm Reader Scanners like the Micro-Image Capture 7 and 7M make for ideal replacements for the aging Minolta RP line.  The Micro-Image Capture 7 comes equipped with a fiche carrier, 7-54x zoom lens, footswitch, software, cables and a 1 year repair or replace warranty for about $3,275.  The MIC7 connects to the user’s pc and connects via USB port to stream the microfiche image directly to the PC monitor. View your microfiche in real time and capture images in one second for distribution to a network printer, file folder, email and more.

The Micro-Image Capture 7M offers a fully motorized 16/35mm Roll Film Carrier with Fiche handler for a Universal Fiche and Roll Film reader scanner solution under $5,000!
