Konica Mermaid

 

Its name indicates it clearly, this device is made for water activities.
It is really waterproof to 5 meters deep (sometimes indicated for 7) and it floats, which ensures trouble-free use for most swimmers.
This is actually a Konica Big Mini permanently encapsulated in a rubber shell. The lens is protected by a window and is sealed by O-rings.
The built-in viewfinder is useless under water and therefore there is an additional frame viewfinder.

The focusing is carried out by an infrared system from 0.35 meter to infinity outdoors and 1.10m to 2.30m under water.

It has an integrated skylight filter. It has a panorama mode. The set of parameters is shown on a LCD screen on the back.

Very playful, the device was available in two colors with dominating Rose or Orange. Its price was 1690 francs.
