Konica C35 EF 35mm film camera

Shipping calculated at checkout.

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).

Manual
