A very popular camera from the late 70s that is a lot of fun to shoot with. Since it's aperture priority it's much more usable than most other cameras and the unique capacitive shutter release is easy to use. I actually don't know why cameras from Konica or Minolta weren't more popular than their Canon or Nikon counterparts as they're consistently ahead with features and ergonomics. This one is from my in-laws that's in great condition except for a small issue with the power switch which I repaired.

My Copy's Performance
This camera was given to me by my mother in law as it was hers but she no longer uses it. It's generally in good condition with a clean focusing screen and good exposure. I did have to repair the power switch which is made up of a plastic nut over a pin that moves over electric contacts to turn on/off the camera. As an electronic camera it cannot fire the shutter without power which can be problematic. The film advance is smooth when unloaded but it takes a great deal of torque to advance film. Still I've used it extensively and enjoyed the camera a lot.
