Konica Autoreflex T3
Another brilliant piece of engineering, Autoreflex T3 was produced in mid-1970's and was universally described as one of the smoothest operating cameras of its day. Metal shutter, automatic aperture priority metering, multiple exposure function, great build quality, excellent Hexanon lenses, etc. Full manual available at Butkus.org. NOTE: this camera was designed to use 1.3V mercury batteries, which are no longer available. The shutter is mechanical and will work without batteries. Regular 1.5V silver cells can be used as a substitute, but ASA will need to be adjusted to compensate for the voltage difference.
Shutter, self-timer and film transport work properly. Meter appears to be active and respond to light with alkaline batteries, but accuracy has not been verified with film. Brand new light seals were installed
Near-MINT. No dents or other major blemishes. Just a touch of brassing on the film door frame. Lettering on the dials is bright and legible. Focusing screen and viewfinder are mostly clear, with just a few tiny specs of dust, which will not interfere with shooting. Aperture scale in the viewfinder appears to have a couple of small pieces of lodged red celluloid film on the periphery (doesn't seem to affect meter needle movement or any other camera function). Original leatherette is in very good condition.
- Hexanon AR 50mm f/1.7 prime lens in MINT- condition. Crystal-clear glass, no fungus or scratches. Aperture is snappy and functions properly. There are traces of oil on the blade edges, but it doesn't seem to impede aperture function at all. Focusing is smooth. The barrel of the lens shows practically no wear. The lens comes with new generic front cap and two high-quality filters (Hoya and B&W). Beautiful, overbuild prime lens.
- FREE BONUS: Weston Master II vintage light meter (untesed).
- Original factory manual (fair condition, some pen marks and rips).
