Konica Pop BF-8

 

Traduction de Alphonse Khuu

BF, of course for Big Finder, thus named with Canon cameras. It seems there has been at the end of 90’s, a fashion for disproportionate viewfinders on bottom-end compact cameras.

Bottom-end, because the lens is fix-focus, 6/35mm with three independent elements (a triplet), the setting of the sensitivity is manual and limited to two choices (100-200 and 400 ISO). The advance and rewinding of the film is entirely manual.
The electronic built-in flash is to put on manually.
