Konica Autorex P

This is the Konica Autorex P, the Japanese market version of the Auto-Reflex P and is one of only two SLRs produced with the ability to switch between full and half-frame exposures on the fly. Unlike the Autorex/Auto-Reflex, the P version does not have auto exposure and is less common as a result.

If you have used any of the Konica SLRs then you are familiar with the layout and feel of the Autorex P. Though slightly less refined, the Autorex P functions as intended with few, if any, quirks (aside from the obvious).

Thanks to the helpful instructions on the bottom of the camera, I had no issue with switching between full and half-frame shots. While the spacing is not the most efficient, the process ensures that frames will never overlap.
