In this installment, we take a look at the battery compartment design of Canon’s 1993 film SLR camera with autofocus.

Canon EOS Kiss (Reference product)

The battery compartment is located inside the hand grip at the end of the body.

Open the lid while pressing down on the lever next to the symbol representing the battery compartment.

The back of the lid looks like a koala’s face (laughs)!

Two CR123A batteries are used.

In this article, we introduced the battery compartment of Canon’s 1993 release of SLR cameras with autofocus.

In the 1990s, SLR cameras with autofocus became mainstream. The battery compartment was designed in the grip, similar to the design of modern digital SLR cameras.

The back of the battery compartment lid looked like a koala’s face, which made me realize that cameras are very deep (laughs).


I will continue to write about film camera designs and features that interest me, so please look forward to it!
