Darth Vader's Konica Aiborg
Bought this camera called a Konica Aiborg for my kid to play Star Wars with, anyone have a user guide I can beg, steal or borrow? I can work most of it out but it has some wierd symbols on the lcd screen, such as a snowflake,a tv and a bouncing, ball any ideas?
Even though its in Japanese, you may be able to glean some information from the illustrations in the manual over at the Konica Minolta Japan website.
The snowflake might be for a snow/beach mode and the bouncing ball is probably for fast shutter speeds (sports?)....
Thanks Jon may THE FORCE be with you. I think the TV symbol is for photographing your TV screen at the correct shutter speed so that you dont get black bars.Now I need to figure out the interval timer settings ME, TE and INT

It looks neat! I sure would have one myself!
Does it comes with mask or attached to mask , it looks like LOMO Panoramic cameras.
I love this, OP posts 5 years ago looking for manual and today a mbr whose first post is this swoops in and closes the loop with the translated manual! Welcome Mr Chairman to Apug!
Thank you for the warm welcome.
