Ricoh GR II with Konica X-14 Flash

Hi all!

I know the GR is not a rangefinder, but the Konica Auto S2 I use the X-14 flash on is.

I have looked for information about the Konica flash and have found very little in terms of specs (even when looking at the paper manual I have for it). I understand that it is probably under 9 volts, but it has some weird terminology regarding setup (I don't have the manual in front of me right now).

For the Ricoh, from the manual it states that the flash voltage has to be under 20 V positive and must be on an "X-contact."

I'm sure it is probably a stretch to think that someone has used this combination before, but has anyone used a similar combination? Would this combination work without harming either the flash or the camera?

Also, I am aware that the Fuji ef-x20 works and is compact, but it would also cost me money. Right now, I cannot afford to buy anything else.

Partial help

I have a partial answer based on what I have on hand. I have a Ricoh GRII and also a full Contax G2 system with the Contax GLA200 flash unit. I attached the GLA200 to the GRII and it fired just fine. Some exposure adjustments would have to be made but it works as you would expect.

Not sure if this helps but there ya go.
