Konica Hexar

The Hexar Silver is not only a change in appearance compared to the Hexar, six years after the its release. It is mainly a change in the programming of embedded electronics to add some functions. Unfortunately, this is at the cost of the disappearance of the "silent" mode. This is so regrettable that the functions appeared on the "Silver" does not serve everyone, not very often: multiple exposures, automatic focus correction for infrared film and manual selection of the guide number according the flash used.

That's what everyone said or wrote at the time of release of this unit, except that there is a hidden key combination and manipulation to activate this method:

- Turn the unit off
- Press and hold pressed the MF button
- Turn on the device (regardless of mode)
- keep the MF button pressed down until an L appear on the screen
- Release the MF button
- Silent mode remains activated until the unit is switched to "Off".

Aesthetically, this second version has the silver metal parts. The housing is covered by a new sheathing. Some buttons, although they have grown, are still too small. There are no more small bump to lay the fingers of the left hand.
The other specifications are identical to those of the first Hexar.
The price in 1999 was 4,990 francs.
