52 Cameras: Konica FS-1


Good article: http://www.konicafiles.com/slr-bodies/-konica-fs-1-1979/

My description of the VF meter displays was as clear as mud.
Here’s a link to the manual: https://www.butkus.org/chinon/konica/konica_fs-1/konica_fs-1.htm



We had signed up for the November 2020 Joshua Tree Half Marathon but the pandemic happened and the race was canceled. We decided to keep the Airbnb and escape any way. It’s in the middle of nowhere so except for buying take-out and booze we didn’t need to interact with anyone. A nice short trip to shake off the stuck-at-home blues. We wandered around Palm Springs in the rain, visited the Salton Sea, and did a fun hike in Joshua Tree National Park. We had to quarantine when we got back but it wasn’t much different from life before so it was definitely worth it.
