Konica Auto S2

Traduction de Alphonse Khuu

Very sober, almost common, this camera has a wide rangefinder viewfinder with correction of the parallax.
The CDS cell (window located above the front lens) controls the exposure from 1 second opened at 1.8 to 1 / 500 at 16. It is also possible to use the camera in manual mode. The cell measures the light vertically on an angle of 25 °; it means 10 °up and 15 °down and on an angle of 30 ° horizontally. The cell information display is in a small window between the shutter release and the flash shoe and in the viewfinder.

The lens is a very good 1.8 / 45mm one with 6 glasses. The shutter is a Copal SVA.

Some copies have an included lens shade. The accessory shoe doesn’t get flash sync mode, and then we must use a cable to plug into the front.

In 1966, this camera was sold at the price of 771 francs (a small fortune, still)
