Konica III L2 (MXL)

Traduction de Alphonse Khuu

Again, Konica has produced a superb camera that differs with competitors productions.
This model differs from the "III" with a few small details for the ring of the lens and the shutter.
The shutter is a SEIKOSHA-MXL which gives shutter speeds from the second to 1/500 sec + B.
here is a self-timer with a lever on the front.
The lens KONISHIROKU HEXANON f2/48mm is considered as excellent. It is regrettable that this lens is fixed.
The viewfinder is very comfortable for its time with a large rectangular rangefinder view tinged in yellow and framelines for parallax correction.
Its originality is also this huge "pedal" of winding and film advance, which is ultimately very useful. The double winding obligatory is.
An automatic frame counter is located in the wrong left wheel.

A beautiful camera that has a lot of charm and that I love so much…
