Update on the Konica Big Mini

If you follow my Instagram you may already seen it: The Big Mini is malfunctioning and rewound two films into the canister after one shot.

I took the camera apart to have a look at the inside, and as I first assumed the connection cable between the backside and the frontside is broken.

Lucky for me, with the Big Mini 201 this can be replaced fairly easily and without any soldering, so I ordered the part on AliExpress and now wait for it to be delivered. Once it’s here I’ll open up the camera again and try to fix the cable.

I assume that the camera is rewinding the film because it thinks the roll is finished, and I hope that replacing the cable fixes that.

Stay tuned for more updates and hopefully more pictures from the Big Mini!
