Good size and brightness.

Little red led to the right of the viewfinder which get lit if light condition are too low and flash is needed.

Build quality

Good but plastic and not that good feel to it.
But the body are still quite solid.

Great little point and click camera which is very easy to use.
It do have manual focus with zone focus but also see in meters or ft.

Image quality from the little Konica is very good.

But you have very little control over the exposure and you can only change the ISO which can work as a exposure comp.
This can be a bit limited when you only can choose between ISO 25-400 depending on which film you use.

This is also more or less only meant to be used hand held and exposure only goes down to 1/60.
It do have a tripod mount and a self-timer.

Thumbs up:
Good image quality
Bokeh / Flare

Thumbs down:
Lack of exposure control
Longest exposure of 1/60
