The Konica Hexar, sometimes known as the Hexar AF, is a 35 mm fixed-lens, prime lens autofocus camera which was produced in the 1990s.
This camera merges the rangefinder experience with the convenience of point-and-shoot photography.
The camera's viewfinder is placed in the traditional position for a rangefinder window but is used to preview what the autofocus mechanism will focus on. The body feels like a rangefinder body. The camera can read DX-coding or you can override or input it manually. The camera advances like a point-and-shoot but the top dial and toggle switch give you manual control over your aperture, and the ability to switch between Program, Auto, and Manual. The dial-driven priority mode here is aperture priority.
If you shoot in full program mode and pop in your film relying on the DX-coding, this camera will give you a premium point-and-shoot experience with a beautiful lens. If you shoot in full manual, this camera's lens has been favorably compared to Leica glass without the red dot price tag.
This style of lens cap is a push-on, similar to other rangefinders.

The camera requires a 2CR5 battery.
This camera comes with the dedicated flash unit that was originally released with it, the HX-14 Auto. When the flash is attached and charged, the camera can operate in automatic flash mode.
