1986 Canon S-16 Serial # H22010242 1986 Canon S-16 typewriter, Serial # H22010242 Ted Munk's 1986 Canon S-16 typewriter. 2022-08-11 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Ted Munk: 1986 Canon S-16 Serial # H22010242 Odd little daisywheel about midway in size between the thermal Typestars (which it strongly resembles in both shell and carrying case) and a regular portable-sized ET. It has an external power supply brick, making the machine itself very light. It has an internal (removable) rechargable battery (missing on this one) and takes plug-in cards to expand the memory.

I couldn't find the direct print mode when testing it, so it seems to power up in the "type a line into the screen, and when you hit return I'll type it (veeery slowly) while you type the next line into the screen" mode. If it had spare ribbons, some more typewheels and a battery, I mighta gotten it to play with it more, but no. Still, the keyboard was very nice, like on the Typestars.

Ted Munk's Typewriter Galleries [ My Collection ] [ My Sightings ]

Status: Curator
Points: 2786

I am a scoundrel without a cause, and my swank outshines the sun.

I am a casual Typewriter Hunter residing in the sweltering deserts of Arizona with a wife, three cats and about 50 typewriters. My main hunting ground is thrift stores, and I rarely pay more than $10 for a machine. My collection consists mainly of portables with cases, and they stay in the cases unless I am actively using it (usually more than one at a time). I do, however keep a handful of interesting Selectrics, including a Composer and a couple of large Nakajima Electronics to use as daisywheel printers for my vintage laptop collection.
