  1. I found these two stashed away in a box , (I knew that I had them SOMEWHERE :D).
    Neither Camera has been used for more than 20 years.
    Both Cameras still appear to be working , and I cannot see any signs of fungus or hazing.
    But which one to test first ? :D.
    I thought that I would post this for interests sake.
    This picture was taken with a Canon PowerShot G12.

  2. Development frost-bit in the bud:

    Advanced Photo System
    Nikon Nuvis S ca 1996

    perhaps without digital, it could have been a "contenda"

  3. My wife hated it. I thought she would have liked it but she hated it. I like a lot of things about APS just hated why they have to be smaller than 35mm?
     
  4. The Konica Big Mini was a fave of Robert Frank and Japanese photographer Hiromix. If it works and you dig it, keep it; otherwise sell it since it's got a cult following.

  5. I have the Konica A4 (model before the Big Mini). Big Mini has the same lens, but adds more AF zones and focuses continuously from infinity into close up range. The fixed focal length P&S eventually gave way to zooms (often with insanely small maximum apertures). Try them both, but I'd try the Big Mini first.

  6. Ok , here are 3 test pictures from the Konica Big-Mini.
    Very mundane subjects.
    Pictures captured on Fujicolor C200 , processed and scanned by the local photo lab.
    I have mixed feelings about the picture quality-----what do you-all think ???.
