I’m sorry

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

Thank you

In this installment, we take a look at the battery compartment design of Canon’s 1990 film SLR camera with autofocus.

Canon EOS 10 QD (Reference product)

The battery compartment is located in the hand grip section on the end side of the body.

The lid can be opened by sliding the claw next to the symbol representing the battery compartment.

One 2CR5 type battery is used.

In this issue, we have introduced a battery compartment for Canon’s 1990 release SLR camera with autofocus.

The battery compartment is located inside the grip, which is a mainstream feature of SLR cameras with autofocus in the 1990s, and I think it is a very good idea to use the space in a very good part of the camera.

This time, the area around the battery compartment lid was not particularly interesting (laughs).


I will continue to write about the good design of film cameras and other aspects that caught my attention, so please look forward to it!
