The Konica L used a Seikosha L leaf shutter (built in the lens of the camera) with speeds from 1/30 to 1/250th of a second plus B. Flash sync X was at 1/30. The exposure meter was cross coupling by adjustable needle to match fixed mark, either in viewfinder field or at top of camera body. The film advance of the Konica L was by a thumb-operated, single-stroke lever which was situated on the right side of the top plate. By one 120º stroke of the lever, the film advanced one frame and cocked the shutter simultaneously.
