    ... thanks to a rangeforum.com forum member.

    I have not yet finished its first roll - Ferrania 400 - but perhaps by day's end. I really like being able to read the selenium meter's swing-needle finding from on top in the little window beside the shoe, and the needle-and-notch in the viewfinder.

    The meter image in the viewfinder is bold and bright, the frame lines are bold and bright, as is the rangefinder patch. And, I do not have to use my reading glasses to make meter readings or focus, which is really neat.

    I have a Konica S-II, brought back for me from Japan by my uncle in the very early 60's. Great camera, and well worth the restoration I recently had done to it.

    Now all I have to do is find the time to use it...
