T-3 without batteries ??

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

I don't have a manual for my T-3 and was unable to find any info on the web as to the function of the batteries in the T3.

Do they only power the meter ?

Will the shutter work properly at the various settings without any batteries in the camera ??

Just as an aside, the Bronica ETRS defaults to 1/500 sec. without the meter battery !!

Please c.c. me directly, thanks... jkiss@ncf.ca

T3 batteries question

Hi John,

The T3 only needs batteries to work the internal meter. The camera will work at all shutter speeds without batteries.

You can find an online manual at The Photography Blue Book web site here:


Have fun!
