My father is a fan of film photos, and although not an expert, he was the official photographer at our family gatherings. One day he asked if I wanted something. So he opened the drawer and there was this camera. It was dressed in red and just screaming for me to use it. So I asked him the history of this beauty and at the same time that I borrowed it. He agreed, so I ran to the refrigerator and took a reel that suited the camera.
The Konica C35 is a camera that is VERY simple to use. It has a ring on the lens that allows focusing based on a scale of meters, one by foot and one with those icons or pictograms usually seen on film cameras. It uses 2 AA batteries for the flash (built-in). Since it does not shoot without batteries, I thought it might be automatic, but apparently the speeds vary little. Anyway, it was released in 1981, and this camera was purchased 24 years ago.
Using it is a pleasure, and draws much attention because of its color. I 100% recommend this camera to any fans who love to manipulate photos while still have surprising results!
