Konica Revio CL (aps)

This is another $1 find, but it is so pretty. Look at that green colour. Plus it has a flip up selfie mirror, very useful.

You can find all the specs you need here. There isn’t much else on the net, but Amazon states it was available for sale there around 2006, but this site says it was released in 1999. Either way, my example is clean, almost mint. It works like all other aps point and shoots, but having the selfie mirror made me think it must have a close minimum autofocus distance.

I took a few shots myself, then I gave the camera to a couple of other people. First another young chappy I was taking photos of, then a friend at school. Basically, this camera worked great, but I have plenty similar ones so could barely be bothered to test this one.

Here are some photos from the test roll.

The minimum focus distance is ok for taking selfies as you can see. The camera works fine but does not rock my boat. It was worth the $1 and it is a good camera if I didn’t have others I might keep it.

Keep or Sell: I have promised an APS camera to another young man so he will get this one.

  1. That’s an attractive little camera. And the lens is reasonably sharp. But oy, the vignetting in the shots.
