Konica Auto S3 Rangefinder Camera

Konica Auto S3 Rnagefinder
PRODUCT ID: SF.110903

OVERVIEW
The Konica Auto S3 was a versatile 35mm, shutter-priority rangefinder camera. Though the camera is similar in some respects to the Vivitar 35ES,Revue 400SE, Prinz 35ER and Minolta Hi-Matic 7sII, Konica has installed a superior RF/VF system and an important ambient light balancing GN Flash system, at the cost of manual over-ride.

The S3 has a fast(f/1.8) 38mm, six-element lens that has a reputation for producing extremely sharp and detailed images. This is one of the nicest compact 35RF cameras around.
