Preowned Konica POP ST camera
Sell "as is" condition
The Konica Pop (aka C35 EFJ in Japan) was a popular 35mm compact camera by Konica, made from 1982. It had fixed focus, one shutter speed, and manual film advance by lever. It has CdS-controlled auto-exposure and a built-in flash. It was available in many bright colours along with the original black. After selling 1.5 million models, new versions were launched in 1985 (including a metallic silver example). These late editions did not say "Hexanon" on the lens, but the flash had an improved recharge time. An Autodate model was issued in about 1988.
Lens: 36mm, maximum aperture f/4. Early models are marked 'Hexanon'; post 1985 are not.
Shutter speed: fixed at 1/125s.
Built-in flash which pops up, hence the name.
Button for close-up flash work (alters aperture accordingly).
ISO selector for 100/400 only.
Possibly unique folding rewind lever (metal) on underside of body. (Later used again on the AF3).
Power: 2 AA batteries (for flash).
