but I would like you to understand

Thank you

In this issue, we would like to introduce the strap guide design for ASAHI Optical Industries’ PENTAX brand manual focus film SLR cameras released in 1979.

PENTAX ME Super (Reference product)

The camera strap guides for the ME Super are located on the upper paste leather brackets on the front of the body, near the sides, respectively.

The strap guide base attached to the camera body is D-shaped and plated.

The strap guide is shaped almost like an isosceles triangle.

In this issue, we introduced a strap guide design for a PENTAX brand manual focus film SLR camera released in 1979 by ASAHI Optical Industries.

The strap guide of this camera is not an equilateral triangle but an isosceles triangle.

The isosceles triangle shape is a very good strap guide design that separates the camera’s moving function and the strap’s holding function.

Please look forward to my next column, where I will continue to write about the design and other aspects of film cameras that are of interest to you!

Thank you for reading my column today.
