The Konica FT-1 was the last SLR to be built both under the Konica name and by Konica themselves. The FT-1 was introduced as an improvement on the earlier FS-1, changes included a different meter type (using silicon photodiode cells instead of the previously used gallium arsenide cells), improved quality of electronics, and a faster winder speed.
