Part of the "Off-Road" series, Konica's Genba Kantoku DD (現場監督DD) is a weather-proof, heavy duty (IPX4 certified) autofocus camera with two focal lengths. It can be regarded as the ruggedised version of the weather-proof bifocal Konica MR.640, with similar controls and features, though it adds a third autofocus sensor for higher focusing precision. Intended for use by construction workers (genba kantoku means "site supervisor") the finder has marks for making panoramas to be stitched together from prints. After 15 minutes, the camera shuts off to conserve batteries.
