Konica Big Mini Zoom


Konica Big Mini Zoom

Today’s film camera is the Konica Big Mini. I was reading an Ed Templeton interview some time ago and he was talking about the cameras he uses. The Big Mini was towards the end of the list but I was interested. Now he probably meant the 35mm fixed lens version of this camera that usually goes for north of $100. I found this zoom version for south of $25. Takes pretty good pics considering. Haven’t printed any but the #negatives look great. Yes it’s a P&S with not many controls. But it’s tiny the zoom range is ok and it’s a great camera to take when the family wants you to keep the gear to a minimum. Fun camera for fun times capable of taking some seriously good images!

Update 6/29/2016:

This camera has become one of my favorite carry cameras. It’s small, the zoom make it versatile, and the built in flash works great! It’s the camera that took the main image in this article about always carrying a camera.
