Konica SV-C40 (1987)

The Konica SV-C40 is the improved and modified version of the SV-C20. It was first demonstrated in 1987. Totally different in design and with a better imaging sensor. It also featured programmed AF, a zoom lens, LCD status display, autoexposure and frame- and field recording mode. The camera could capture 8 pictures per second in single-frame mode and 4 images per second in full-frame mode. The big handle to the left contained the battery compartment.

Konica also intended to market a video player and recorder (SV-R30) as well as a hard-copy color printer (VP-1000). The entire system would cost (if marketed) $7,400.
