All features and specs has been tested and there are working properly. Shutter fires accordingly according the exposure reading.  The rangefinder eyepiece is clean and properly sync with lens. Lens, rewind crank, ISO adjuster, timer and all parts that move this little camera are working efficiently. We can say that, its previous owner really took a good care of it (in term of functionality). Just, its outer appearances show heavy usage from it previous owner. Shutter speed at "B" functioning properly.

Okay, let me explain why I sell this camera cheap. This camera's only problem is, it needs battery to operate and meter the light properly. If no power connection means; it only works at wide open f/2.8 under the shutter speed of 1/60s. After I did the routine inspection to this camera, I found out that the negative terminal wire connection in the battery chamber has corroded and need to be rewired.

It is very hard to repair it myself because I got very limited precision tools. You can read more about this battery/power problem of Konica C35 in this website - HERE

I can recommend some trusted repairmen for you to send this camera for an overhaul. It may cause you another RM100-RM150.

So, if you're into street photography, this rangefinder camera is for you. The shutter clicks silently you know :)

As you can see in the picture, we may rate this Konica C35 body for its overall condition; 8/10. Plus, we'll also provide a soft copy of the camera manual in English for your reference. Plus, battery is also included.
