Konica Jump Shot WP

In 1993, Konica launched on the market two weather protected cameras: the Top’s AF300 SP and the Jump Shot WP that is presented here.
The latter was available in several .... peculiar trims. This is the Weather-Proof Version (hence the name WP) of Jump, but not waterproof. It's just to say that it is protected against dust and spray ingress, but no more.
It replaces the Jump Weather-Proof dated 1987 .Its line was redrawn. It is lighter. Its recount makes it look like a disposable, the type of which Konica was a very large manufacturer.
A cell manages the possible combinations of three diaphragm apertures (4.5,8 or 16 ) with the single shutter speed, and this in function of the film speed (ISO 100/200 or 400) and the available light. The automatic flash can be forced on but it can not be cut.

It was priced at 550 francs in 1993.
