Konica EU-Mini

 

Traduction de Alphonse Khuu

Blue variant of the Konica Eu-mini also available in red. The Eu-Mini is a fix-focus and Konica proves as it can be both simple and beautiful.
At the time of its release, Konica has a solid reputation as a manufacturer of compact cameras and then its range is composed of 15 models with prices ranging from 180 francs to 5000 francs. The EU-Mini aimed at a young clientele, with a price of 400 francs. The camera was sold in a transparent plastic bag, in which was a film ... Konica.
The aim was to regain the success of Pop, which had been sold over three million copies. According to one of the ingredients in the recipe of this one, the EU-Mini was proposed since its launch in red, blue or black. Over the years of production, it will be proposed in yellow, silver, and even in blue covered with gold stars.

It has a small flash with a Guide Number of 9, but which emits a pre-flash to reduce the rabbit eyes. The DX coding is clearly recognized. The range of speed is very limited: from 1/60 to 1/180.
