Konica Auto S

by M. Feuerbacher 2013

The Konica Auto S, built between 1963 and 1965, was the first 35 mm auto exposure camera on the market. It has a CdS meter and a shutter-priority automatic-exposure mode. Besides that, it has many more features that distinguished from other cameras at the time: the lens is a fast 47 mm f/1.9 hexanon of high optical quality, the framelines in the viewfinder are parallax corrected in position as well as in size and the light meter can be adapted to low-light situations by a switch on the front.

This rock solid camera was the predecessor of the well known Konica Auto S2, which is similar in size and design, but has the light-meter window in the lens barrel.
