Not big...
About the size of a Contax IIIa with a 50/2... or thereabouts.

Once you know the EV number and set it on the lens, the shutter speeds/apertures are locked together so you can do the archaic equivalent of the "program shift"--change the f-stop/shutter speeds while maintaining the same exposure. 1/60 at f8, 1/30 at f/11, etc.

Oh, I like both of those shots above. Great textures on the bottom ones!
The EV interlock can easily be disconnected by a good service person, I use a IIIA with it disconnected, doing so also frees up the rings which makes the camera very fast and easy to use. I'd recommend having it done it to anyone using them.

Hello there, I found a Konica Auto S1.6 last month, it is a sort of KIIIM little brother. I have been using it a lot recently. Very good built quality, nice and clear viewfinder, Planar optics, accurate light meter... The IIIM is still my favorite one, with its 1:1 life-size viewfinder. And the body is smaller too.

Pull back on the black EV ring and turn it to set shutter speed alone; pull back on the camera-left serrated part of said ring to change aperture independently, using the other hand to turn the aperture ring (there's a tiny serrated section at the bottom).

The IIIA especially is a beauty and the 50mm f/1.8 is a great lens - but I'm pretty sure the shutter-speed/aperture assembly was designed after a very heavy liquid lunch.

I think, KAS1.6 is a brother of KAS2 with 45/1.8 lens. KAS series have nice lens and VF but construction and materials aren't on par with III series. DOF scale is sissy, too

Hello !
I'm back from Lourdes where I made 5 rolls with the KIIIM, 3 with the Rollei and 20 testing my ZM Sonnar.
Looking at my first 120 pictures, I see no big difference in terms of quality between the M6 + ZM Sonnar (€1.800 kit) and the KIIIM (€250 all-in-one camera). The KIIIM may be prone to flare where the ZM Sonnar is not. But I found the KIIIM viewfinder better (life size) and I used both cameras without checking a light meter constantly.

I'm developing and scanning this 'reportage' and it's a sort of faith book.

Shooting in the streets of Lourdes, I took several portraits. Most of them were unobtrusive but this one was asked with a smile, no word needed.

#28 - same roll

Yes, she was real. Yes, I took another portrait of her, closer.
Yes, she was fascinated by the KIIIM and so we had a love affair.

No kidding.

Great work Nicolas, good to know you're getting much more out of the IIIA than I ever did.

A Tele-Koniflex might be up for sale some time this year. Being a Konica fan I wonder if you would be interested.

These are from the KIIIM, Yin. But I'm using the KIIIA, you're right. And I'll probably post some samples here soon.
