NotesThe Konica C35 Automatic (Flashmatic in Japan) was a update to the original C35 released in 1968. A fully Automatic camera the only control the operator has is selecting the ISO. It uses the old 1.35V Mercury batteries but mine seems to operate and meter just fine with an SR44. All versions of the C35 came with the same excellent Hexanon 38mm lens.
