What camera do I have???

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Konica 35mm SLRs : One Thread

I hope someone can help me. I recently purchased a Konica Autoreflex T camera body. I thought it was the T1 but now I am not so sure. I had ordered the PX625 mercury batteries for it that the tech data elswhere on this site said it used. Well, the batteries are at least 2 times to large for the compartment. Either the info is wrong or I don't have the T1.

Does anyone know if maybe I have the T2 version of the Autoreflex? Does it take the 675 mercury battery? Other features: it has an on/off dial on the back under the rewind knob and a switch or lever on the shutter speed dial that has a dot above it and an arrow pointing toward the words "OVER RIDE" on it. I don't know what that is for. The camera does say Autoreflex T on the front. Which one is it? Any help will be appreciated.

It's a "T"


Sounds like an Autoreflex T. They all use PX-675 batteries, which are considerably SMALLER than the PX-625s uned in the Autoreflex TC and other later models.

What camera do I have

Dan, You have the first model of the Autoreflex T. On/off switch is on the back below the rewind knob. On the 2nd model of the Autoreflex T on/off switch is around the shutter button. Both models need 2 PX 675 mercury batteries (1.35 V!).

The early Autoreflexes' metering system was unable to cover some -extreme- combinations of ASA and shutter speed. For example, ASA 800 @ B, 1, 1/2, and 1/4 sec. The "override" lever allows you to "ignore" this limitation for special effects, or when clculating exposure by some other means than the camera's internal metering system.

Batteries for Autoreflex T

I believe you need the PX675 1.35 volt mercury batteries for that camera, unless it has been re-calibrated for a 1.5 volt battery, which is unlikely. Have you tried Canadian Quality Concepts in Guelph, Ontario, Canada? Their e-mail is: .
