Seeking approximate value of camera

I have been asked by an elderly friend of my mother's, to sell a Konica Autoreflex TC Camera, with a Vivitar electronic flash model 252 and two lenses. One appears to be a Vivitar 200mm f3.5 telephoto lens. The lens on the camera reads, "auto Vivitar wide angle 33mm 1:2.8 No. 3702702. She has asked me to sell it on Ebay, since I sell things on Ebay. I know absolutely NOTHING about cameras like this. When I search for it on Ebay, I get every price, ranging from about $10.00 for the manual, $19.99 for the entire case, camera and lenses, all the way to hundreds of dollars, for what appears to be the same product. I don't want to "give" her item away, and I am having trouble determining some kind of value. Can you assist me or point me in the right direction? I sure would be grateful. Debbie email:

Broken battery door

No. Duct tape will hold the battery but it won't make contact. Without something connecting that end of the battery to the circuitry in the camera, you may as well leave it empty.

I need some general info on this camera's specs; i.e., film speed

Vivitar TL-125 was popular around Christmas 1988. Good to see your is still going strong!

In terms of ASA ratings, it would depend on whether the model has DX coding (which you would find as a set of gold pins in the bay where you put the film cassette.... If it has, then the asa range would be 50 - 1600 asa. If it hasn't, then Vivitar used to put a small selector on the baseplate of the camera to switch between 100 and 400 asa.

As a rule of thumb, I'd always use 400 asa film in this type of camera.... the extra two stops of speed far outweigh the loss of picture quality - especially with point and shoot zoom lenses.

I can't find a specific manual (no one seems to stockpile them), but if you can read a generic one, try the Vivitar point and shoot here :
(Note, I think you use a different sort of battery, but the controls and placings are all very similar between models).

If you need an original manual, then Oldtimer cameras will sell you an electronic download, or there is an original coming up on eBay in the USA in the next couple of days (with a camera - for spares). If you were really cheeky, you could ask the vendor to scan it in for you.

Hope this helps.

Should I Repair My Konica FC-1?

A Konica FC-1 or A3 with a 50mm lens typically sells for $75 or less on E-bay. Get an estimate from a camera repair man. If it is cheaper to buy a "new" camera, go to E-bay or Craig's list. By the way, Konica is a mid-grade camera. For the same money, you should consider a top rated Nikon or Cannon.

Older equipment on newer equipment

Carry one of your lenses to a camera store and ask them to let you compair it with one for a Maxxum.

The Sony Alpha / Konica / Minolta mount is called a TYPE A bayonette mount. google the Maxxum and see if it accepts the TYPE A mount.
