Konica Big Mini

I haven’t had the greatest of luck with Konica Big Mini cameras. Most recently this cameras predecessor the Konica A4 let me down. Not easily deterred I loaded this Big Mini with the worst film I had, a roll of expired Konica VX400 a film that does not age well. And this is aged, at least if the camera didn’t function I wouldn’t be out a nice roll of Portra or similar.

The camera worked well and the film was as expected, bad. The Big Mini is truly a point and shoot with little user control but when that is what you want it delivers through its sharp 4 element lens (5 if you count the built in skylight filter which you should not).

One thing about one camera the Konica Big Mini can hold its shutter open for up to 7.5 seconds
