Description:

The Konica SII was introduced by Konishiroku in 1961 and sold mostly in Japan. It was a subtle update of the 1959 S which was the first coupled light meter camera made by Konica. The most obvious difference between the two being the all black lens of the SII where the S was chrome at the front. The S series is not to be confused with the Auto S series; the S series do not provide auto exposure.

The SII uses a selenium cell light meter so does not require a battery but it’s rare to find a meter that still works as the cells lose accuracy or expire completely over time. That said, it’s not meter-dependent so the camera is perfectly usable without a working meter, judging exposures mentally using the simple sunny16 system.
