Battery compartment design for ASAHI Optical Industries’ film SLR camera!
Because we can’t speak english
I am using DeepL translate, so it may be a strange sentence,
but I would like you to understand
In this issue, we will show you the battery compartment of an autofocus film SLR camera released in 1997 by ASAHI Optical Industries.
PENTAX MZ-50 QUARTZ DATE (Reference product)
The battery compartment is located inside the grip.
The battery compartment lid is located at the bottom of the body.
To open and close, turn the knob in the center counterclockwise. To close, turn clockwise.
Two CR2 batteries are inserted vertically.
When I turned the body upside down and put it down,
What a surprise, it looks like a face of something again (laughs)!
In this issue, we introduced the battery compartment of an autofocus SLR camera released in 1997 by Asahi Optical Industries.
The MZ-50 has a battery compartment inside the grip, which is standard for film SLR auto-focus cameras.
For some reason, the area around the battery compartment lid of this type of camera looks like a human or animal face.
I wonder if I am the only one who sees it that way, or if it is the same for other people? (Laughs)
I will continue to write columns on the parts and functions of film cameras that are fun to look at, so please look forward to them!
