Konica FP-1 Program - Camera

Easy-to-use film body but unfortunately the FP-1 has very limited settings. In AE mode the camera operated with only 3 possible apertures, f/2.8, f/5.6 or f/11, and would use shutter speeds from 1/30 to 1/1000 sec. A f/1.8 lens would have full light strength in the viewfinder, but at exposure the max. aperture would be f/2.8.

Compatible battery type(s) for the Konica FP1 Program: 4LR44 6V

Konica AR System

Konica’s AR system was introduced in 1965 alongside their first SLR, the Auto Reflex. It had auto in the name because the AR bayonet was the first SLR mount to offer automatic exposure. Simply select a shutter speed and the camera was capable of picking an appropriate aperture as long as the lens was set to EE, or ”Electric Eye” mode.

Konica would continue to use this lens mount for decades, eventually adding fully programmed exposure and other advanced features to their SLRs. Despite their excellence, especially in lens production, Konica cameras and lenses are generally less popular than alternatives from Nikon, Canon, Olympus, or Pentax.

Konica’s AR lenses, especially their Hexanon series, are of exceptional quality and can be adapted easily to mirrorless systems.
