Konica Z-up 28W

Presented at the PMA 1990, this camera was the first compact fitted with a wide-angle zoom.

I proposes a "SNAP" mode which, simply by pressing halfway the electronic trigger, locks operation on a special program mode. This one select a 28 mm focal length, sets a a distance of about 2.5 meters. Others would have called it hyperfocal, except that preference is given to high speeds, so at the expense of depth of field. The flash is switched to an automatic mode and the engine accelerates to two frames per second.

The SNAP system, if coupled to the self timer, takes a picture after a ten seconds delay, and then another picture is taken three seconds later.

The distance setting (when the SNAP mode is off) also operates from 50 to 75 centimeters in "macro" mode.
