52 Cameras – Week 8 – Konica C35 Automatic

Introduced in 1971, the Konica C35 Automatic is a compact ragnefinder small enough to carry in a pocket. It features a fully automatic exposure system in which the shutter speed and aperture run in predefined combinations.

Mine was an eBay bargain; the leatherette is peeling from the back cover and it needs new light seals. In any event, the shutter and meter seem to function properly. I've loaded it with a roll of Kodak Ektar 100 and pocketed it for a few days.
