This is a series of articles introducing film SLR camera self-timers!

This time we would like to introduce the self-timer of Konica’s manual focus film SLR camera released in 1976.

What is the self-timer function?

Self-timer is a function that allows the photographer to release the shutter after a certain period of time when taking a picture. It is a very convenient function that allows the photographer to take a picture when he or she wants to be the subject of the picture.

KONICA ACOM-1 (Reference product)

This is an ACOM-1 released in 1976.

The self-timer has a lever on the side of the shutter button next to the lens mount, under the D mark below the model name.

The lever is marked in white.

This lever is then tipped in a counterclockwise direction.

Push the lever down to the 9 o’clock position on the clock and press the shutter release button.

When the shutter release button is pressed, the self-timer lever begins to move clockwise.

The shutter is released when the tip of the lever comes between 11 and 12 o’clock.
When done, the self-timer function is completed by placing the lever in the metal part of the protrusion.

This time, we introduced a manual-focus film SLR camera released by Konica in 1976 with a self-timer.

Konica’s film SLR cameras have a long history, and there are many fascinating cameras to choose from, so I hope to write more columns in the future.
