Konica Z-Up 110 Super

Konica made several ultra compacts in different lines. The non-zoom optics are all moderate wide angles of 35mm focal length. Only the Big Mini F opens up to F2.8. As it is also the smallest of the Konicas, it's the most expensive. The A4 is much cheaper, so it's a good alternative. And then there is the Lexio 70. It goes from 28 to 70mm and it has impressing data at the wide end: F3.4. So it's as good as the other 28mm premium ultra compacts which all open up to F3.5.

The Z-up 110 Super shown here is one of a mid range series, Z-UP series has several models and style variants. This one was lauched in 1996. Its main features are:

38-110mm F3.5-9.8 Konica lens, 6 elements in 5 groups, autofocus with focus lock, min. focus 0,8m

Electronic shutter, 1-1/300

Size 120x67x53, Weight 240 gr. with battery

25-3200 ISO, automatic DX coding, self-timer, automatic film advance, exposure correction +1.5EV, infinity lock. This camera is easy to use. Autofocus is responsive and works well. Putting a film is easy as well, you drop the film, tear the film leader up to the mark and that's it. The camera winds it automatically. It has some manual settings if needed, the menu is very easy to access on a big clear LCD screen. In comparison to the other ultra compacts, this is only mid range quality. The lens is a bit dim at the wide end. The camera is bulkier and heavier than it seems, but still smaller than the latest model. There are better ones from Konica, like the above mentioned Lexio 70.

It's nevertheless a good point and shoot camera with a moderate wide angle zoom lens, good picture quality and nice finish.
