The Konica C35 EF is a classic late 1970s compact 35mm camera, it's one of the first compact cameras to include a built-in flash. The combination of ease-of-use, quality optics and the aforementioned flash made the C35-EF a revolutionary camera when new (it was famously used by Andy Warhol as his party camera) and still a very versatile camera today.
The C35-EF requires a 675 zinc air battery for its exposure meter (one is included; an extra is available as an option) and two AA batteries for its flash (not included).
Condition notes We film tested this Konica C35-EF and it delivered sharp, correctly exposed photos. The camera is very good cosmetic condition (see photos).
Manual We weren't able to locate the manual for this camera but its lower-end fixed-focus sibling, the C35-EFP is a handy reference: https://www.cameramanuals.org/konica/konica_c35_efp.pdf (The primary differences are: 1. the C35-EF has a better, faster lens; 2. the C35-EF offers variable focusing by pictogram or distance in feet/meters.
