Konica film SLR camera autodate!



at first

I’m sorry

Because we can’t speak english

I am using DeepL translate, so it may be a strange sentence,

but I would like you to understand

Thank you

In this issue, we will introduce the auto-date feature of Konica’s 1976 manual-focus film SLR camera.

Konica ACOM-1  (Reference product)

I was wondering about the mark with the letter D in the hexagon at the bottom of the camera model name and was looking it up.

We then found a panel on the film chamber lid on the back of the body.

It has a round yellow LCD section, a red pilot light, and a push button.

There is a note on it regarding the batteries to run this function.
It seems that you can use the dating function by inserting the batteries and pressing the push button.

In this article, we briefly introduced the auto-date function of Konica’s manual focus SLR camera released in 1976.

In this article, we learned about the meaning of the symbol on the front and the embedded button on the back of the camera.

We will send you the second installment of this article, which will cover the operation of the camera when batteries are inserted, as well as more detailed information!

We look forward to introducing you to more interesting discoveries and wonderfully designed film cameras in the future!
