My Konica FS-1 Died.

My Konica died, but I guess you can tell from the title of the post.

I found that camera when I was about 13, it was in a terrible state. My mother told me that it was a prize for some local bowling tournament or such that my father won.

I cleaned the poor thing, I macgyvered the battery compartment that was completely burned by leaking old batteries from the 80s and I used it up to around 2012. then yesterday it wouldn't start with fresh batteries. I'm glad it lasted so long, but it was my first love and I won't let it die! So I found one on ebay... Sadly, mine is beyond repair, the battery compartment just came apart for good this time.

That's my baby Konica a few years back. RIP. I hope the new one works well.
