Thank you

In film cameras, there is a function that is unique to rangefinder cameras and SLR cameras, and that is the wind-up lever, which serves to advance the film to the next frame after the shutter release.

In this article, we will look at the film winder lever of a vintage Canon SLR camera released in 1981.

We will use the cameras on sale at our vintage shop Japan Inc.

The film winding lever position is on the top surface.

The winding lever is well placed in the shutter button and speed dial section.

The lever is smooth and easy to operate.

While the previously introduced CanononflexRP released in 1960 had the winding lever on the bottom, the AE-1 PROGRAM has it on the basic top of the film SLR camera.
