Konica C35 EF aka C35 New EF aka Pikkari

Film range: 25 to 400 ASA.

Lens: Hexanon 38mm, f2.8, 4 elements in 3 groups

Filter ring: 46mm

Focus range: 3.5 feet to infinity

Zone/Scale focus

Shutter: 1/60, 1/125, 1/250 shutter speeds. (also 1/30 AND 1/650???, see comments below)

 

Use 2 x AA batteries to power the flash and 1 X 1.3 volt button cell (mercury PX675 or EXP675) for the CDS light meter. Apparently, using modern 1.5v batteries won't negatively effect C41 or black and white films. Correct voltage may be needed for slide film.

 

With flash off, the camera will select the correct aperture. The CDS above the lens controls which f stop is used.

 

I believe the shutter speed is determined by the ISO setting in non-flash mode.

 

As this is the NEW EF - the original had no timer - there is a third shutter speed of 1/250. The old EF had 1/60 and 1/125.

 

Note the camera shoots without any batteries. It may default to either 1/60 or 1/125 depending on the ISO. I believe it shoots at its widest aperture, f2.8.

 

In flash mode the camera default to an aperture determined by the ISO. The camera may default to a shutter speed of 1/60 1/125.

 

The window beside the viewfinder has a light meter attached to the flash. This may govern how much light the flash emits.

 

On this camera, after some cleaning, everything seems to be in good working order.
