Konica Pop EF 88
is a very basic compact camera. I
got it for next to nothing in a thrift shop, so I tested it
nevertheless. There is very little information about this camera. As
there was an EF 80 model, launched in 1996, I presume this is a later
model, ca, 1990 but with simlar features. Its main features are:
34mm F4.3 (or more) focus-free lens, min. focus ?m Camera on indication in the viewerfinder window Shutter speeds ? Size 125x70x47, Weight 205 gr. batteries included Limited DX code for ISO 100 - 400 (only 2 contacts), auto wind, AE, flash off/auto/flash on button, red eye reduction
view. Camera on lamp. Viewer. Film type window.
from above. Just a shutter button and a mecanical film counter.
Seen from below. Battery compartment (takes 2 AA batteries). Rewind, not automatic. No tripod socket.
open. Button for flash always and flash off, has to be held, if not it's flash auto.
Film compartment open.
camera is incredibly basic. You slide it open and push the shutter,
that's all. There are no features except flash on in
situations and flash off. All the rest is automatic. The camera has a
fixed focus lens. No slow shutter speeds for night photos. No automatix
spooling to the first photo and no automatic re-spooling, but auto wind
between the photos. Point and shoot as
