Konica 1 Xpro

The Konica 1 is a very old camera with a very old lens so it isn’t the camera you would choose for optimum photo results. The reason that you might pick it to use is that the shutter is completely disconnected from the film advance. Ordinarily this would be a bad thing but it allows for easily taking multi-exposures or what I like to do with it which is to advance the film part way for each exposure and then turn to take in a slightly new overlapping view. Not always successfully.

The other thing I did with this roll of film was to run it through my nearly exhausted E6 chemistry even though it was designed for C41. This is called cross processing and is more familiarly found with developing slides in C41 chemistry but clearly I didn’t care that much for this roll of drugstore film.
