The Konica C35 EF was introduced in 1975, at a suggested retail price of USD 149,95. Two years later it was updated, but it kept the same model number and the modifications were minor. The focusing symbols on the lens barrel were framed – the symbols on the first model more stylish, but that’s a matter of taste – and instead of black and chrome, the flash release button was now orange.

The new model featured a third shutter speed of 1/250, whereas the previous one had only 1/60 and 1/125. The biggest distinction was the self-timer, operated by a lever next to the lens.

Design

The Konica C35 EF is the very first compact 35mm camera to feature a built-in flash. The “C35” in its name stands for “Compact 35mm” and the “EF” standing for “Electronic Flash.” In Japan, this camera is known by its nickname “Pikkari” which, as far as I can tell, translates roughly into “glittery brightness.”

Film photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever . . . it remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything. 35mm film SLR camera is more than a medium for factual communication of ideas. It is a creative art.

The EF is constructed of metal and plastic which gives it nice, robust feel. It accepts a range of films from ISO 25 to ISO 400 and utilizes a fantastically sharp Hexanon 38mm f/2.8 lens that is preset to four different focus zones (1 meter, 1.5 meters, 3 meters, and infinity). Surprisingly, the shutter only has two speeds: 1/60 and 1/250 and can be put on a self-timer by adjusting the nob under the “EF” badge. The flash is activated by shifting the red arrow button towards the lens which makes it pop up.
