Konica SV-C20 (1985)

The Konica SV-C20 too was shown during the PMA '85 and CES '85. Compared to other prototypes it almost looked like a finished product. Well, more like a spot meter than a camera actually. That's because the still camera derived from a Konica video camera. The camera featured a zoom lens, TTL optical finder, rechargeable Ni-Cd batter pack and the possibility to attach a dedicated flash. It could record images in field mode and frame mode. That means 25 images in full-frame mode or 50 images in single-field mode. The camera had one weakness though and that was the image quality. At the center of the camera was a 0.18MP CCD sensor that could not compete with any other still video camera in quality. Konica also planned to market a video floppy disk player SV-P10 and a video-to-hardcopy printer.
