KONICA Wide 28/Genba Kantoku 28 Point and Shoot 35mm Film Camera
►Released in 1990; Made in Japan
Between 1988 to 2001, Konica released a series of ruggedised cameras aimed at the Japanese construction industry. The Genba Kantoku 28 (現場監督) (translated as Site supervisor) or referred to as Foreman or Work camera was part of this specialised series and was a rugged 35mm film camera built for the basic purpose to record construction work in, often, harsh conditions.

Highlight features of this camera includes:
- Fully automatic and autofocusing point and shoot - all you'll need to do is load film!
- Wide fixed lens 28mm f3.5 with an impressive lens construction, expect beautifully sharp images from this camera
- Minimum focusing distance of 0.5m
- A rare camera model that was available only in Japan and was not marketed for the consumer market
- Very robust camera body that is dust, sand and splash proof and has anti-shock impact resistant (JIS Protection grade 4-8)
- Multiple flash modes: On, Off, Automatic mode
