Note: Neither the hot-shoe nor the PC port are triggering flashes in our tests so this is ideally for someone who doesn't use strobes. The camera is otherwise in excellent working condition, it was film-tested and delivered great results.

The Konica Autoreflex TC is a compact shutter priority and metered manual 35mm SLR from the late 1970s. The included Konica Hexanon AR 50mm f1.8 is a very sharp lens. This the most compact of the uniformly superb Autoreflex series of SLRs; the trade-off for the smaller size and weight is that this model omits some less used features (eg depth of field preview) and slow shutter speeds of its full-sized, full-featured older siblings.

The camera requires two 675 zinc air cells (optional)

Condition notes
We film-tested the camera and it delivered sharp, correctly exposed photos. As mentioned earlier the flash is not triggering, otherwise it's working perfectly. All shutter speeds were tested and showed good accuracy. Cosmetically it's in good condition except for some minor wear and the fact the leatherette is a bit shrunken. The included Konica Hexanon AR 50mm F1.8 lens is very good condition with a very snappy aperture mechanism.
