Since I participate a half year proud owner of a Konica Revio Z2. I was on the search after a camera, should have the next feature. Small and easy, with it still zoom, if the date should possibly appear on the pictures as well and it should possess all new attribute. How lightning against red eyes, automatic lightning, etc. The further wanted me I with films no longer with the puts in around-argues and archives no negative-strips more. Consequently, I decided as first in favor of an APS-Kamera. APS = Advanced photo system. It is here about a small-picture-film, that is accommodated in a cassette. Consequently the film slips to the one and one gets back this cassette to the other after the development again. So that one can now assign pictures again, each picture has a film-number, that appears also on the cassette. With this system, it falls to have imitated pictures very easily. Here participates to remark, the information as well in the cassette to each picture is stored and consequently really each imitation picture so looks like the original. This puts in the cassette into the camera participates very simple, through the geometrical form, a wrong participates practically impossible puts in. Now some will say surely, but something participates if I now put in a film exposed already? There nothing at all happens, the camera recognizes this and additional exposures participates impossible. Still to it, a system, through which one recognizes, participates on the cassette whether the film new, exposes part, exposes completely or already ready is developed. The part-exposure participates another advantage of APS, is not supported by all cameras however. From the Konica Revio also not, therefore I would not also like to accept here it further three picture-formats still stand there can be put in to the disposal this for each picture of the film separately. This last 16 the conventional format, a format, that corresponds to the new norm
in the television-area,:9 as well as the panorama-picture. With these picture-formats as well as the zoom, there is almost no situation, that they could not cling, more. That was in the summary trial APS. Now further to the Konica Revio. After I had decided in favor of the APS system, two alternatives crystallized quickly out. To the one this canyon IXUS II, to the other just the Konica Revio. The IXUS offered something more provision, was with 200 Euro howeverafter all 65 Euro more expensive. Furthermore, a bag was already in the delivery capacity of the Konica with it. This circumstance and the fact, that I need not to put in part-exposed films the possibility, made easy me the decision for the Konica. The Konica possesses a data-rear wall a 24-48 zoom, a metal-casing, with date and titles. Unfortunately, one can input no own titles. I have made more films since then essentially more than early. This is simply because of it that I almost everywhere take it. So far, all pictures have succeeded and already some snapshot has provided for laugher-consequence. I would like to do without this camera no longer and can recommend it to only everyone. For 130 Euro a really good camera.
I've owned my Konica Revio for about two years, it has been all over the world with me, and has yet to let me down. When I first looked into buying a small compact APS camera, the Canon IXUS was the camera to buy. The IXUS is small, neat and full of features, and seemed an obvious buy. The camera shop staff were knowledgeable enough, and thrust a few alternatives into my line of sight. One being the Konica. It has all the standard features - three pictures sizes, built-in flash, and plenty of extras include several choice of picture management. My fav of these is the ability to set the focus point further out. This way if you are behind a fence you can take a picture through it and it seems to disappear. Size wise the camera is small enough to fit (and be forgotten about if not careful) into a trouser or shirt pocket. The carry case is soft material, so won't protect it if you drop it, but will stop scratchs and minor damage. As it is an APS camera, loading and retrieving the film is simple - you literally can't get it wrong. You can double up exposures to get twice as many prints from one film, and you can stamp the date and time as to give a permanent record of when you were where! The only downside of a camera this size, and it is a common ailment, is the lack of a good zoom. The Konica does offer a reasonable lens, and it copes admirably with most snapshot requirements. Make no mistake, this is not a camera if you want 'arty' pictures, but if you want an ideal holiday snapshot camera, then the Revio is an excellent choice. It is competitively priced (you don't seem to pay for the 'name'), and very robust for it's size - it has survived three falls off tables so far. If you want more exposures - get a digital camera, if you want more control over your pictures get an SLR, but if you want a small, robust, fully featured snapshot camera I can recommended the Konica R
evio highly - you will love it!
This little camera is so compact and stylish that it will make you the king of photographers. The Zoom action is smooth and the digital display shows the number of photos that you have left on your film opposed to the number that you have taken. This being my first APS camera, I have found that despite the costs of buying and developing films, this camera has been a joy to use. Extra features include the ability to select titles from a list provided for the photos, and to date the photographs. This camera can take normal, panoramic, and thinner than normal photos, and it has red-eye reduction, night time setting, making this a feature packed but compact and sexy little camera.
