Konica Genba Kontaku 28 WB camera

Konica Genba Kantoku 28WB Review – “The Guv” – by Ray Yee

When I was young, I was given a Tonka toy truck. Sold as being were indestructible, a four year old me took this as a challenge and duly tested this out by placing said truck under my dad’s car. One punctured tyre and slightly bent toy later, I developed a fascinated with ruggedised objects.

And so, when I came across a “Genba Kontaku” (Japanese for site supervisor) camera during a rather my latest Shinjuku Camera Shop Walk in Tokyo, I jumped at the chance to get one.

It’s not been an easy process for anyone involved in the process of judging all 373 images. There were a lot of good photos, many of which deserved to win. In the end, a combination of most judges having this image in their top 5, and it being the most compliant with the original guidelines is what won it. But it was close.
