Konica Autoreflex T

In the late ’60s, the Japanese camera makers came forward with a flurry of compact SLR cameras, almost indistinguishable to the layman’s eye. Konica contribution to the lot was the Autoreflex T, a solid camera both in functions and weight. A step-up of the Autoreflex, the T proudly stood in the first line of this class.

A TTL meter wise enough to select spot or average metering, depth of field view, generous speed offering and good kit lens. Auto option complemented with manual, with two needles at the finder’s window for easy control. The only downside was the camera’s heft, second only to the Cosina STL 1000. Not sure why it had been built that way, but it was later corrected with the much lighter Autoreflex TC. Further, no integral accessory shoe, though available as an add-on. A battery check button was a neat option, compensating for the short life batteries of the time.

Konica Autoreflex T user manual  I don’t know if this is an exact copy of the manual. It is a bit strange.
