Body design of a Konica 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 article, we are interested in the body design of Konica’s manual focus SLR camera released in 1979.
Konica FS-1 (Reference product)
If you look at the bottom of the camera body, you will see that it has a round, gouged shape.
This part of the film chamber is where the film fits. The corners of the lid are folded back and overlap the inside of the body.
The lid of the film chamber is shaped to partition the film body.
The film mounting area has a gouge that allows the film to be mounted very smoothly.
The film fits easily.
This time we introduced the body design of a Konica manual focus SLR camera released in 1979.
We have previously introduced the body design of a rangefinder compact camera, but this time we were able to discover this design in this film SLR camera.
I think this body design, which is possible only with a film camera, is a wonderful part of the design that really considers the photographer.
I will continue to introduce designs that I think are good in film cameras and what I like about them, so please look forward to reading more!
