Last summer i was looking for a rangefinder camera to carry with me anywhere i go. I ended up buying a Konica C35 (the original black one) from a local store with 6 month warranty. I like the camera very much. The lens is sharp. I like the way it reproduces the colours, thereīs something different in them, i canīt describe them correctly, but they are sweet !

The exposure is automatic, but itīs easy to manipulate it, as the camera locks the exposure setting when you press the shutter button half way down. That was a feature i didnīt expect to find in an almost 40 years old camera !

Here are some C35 links, one of them has a downloadable manual:
