Canon rangefinder camera winding lever Part 2!
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
With a film camera, after releasing the shutter, you manually operate the winding lever to advance the film to the next frame and prepare for the next shutter release.
In this article, we would like to focus on the film winding lever of Canon’s rangefinder released in 1977.
We will use the cameras on sale at our vintage shop Japan Inc.
Canon A35 Datelux 40mm f/2.8
The film winding lever on this 1977 Canon A35 Datelux release was changed from the lower lever position on rangefinder cameras released in the 1960s to the upper position.
The winding lever sits smoothly thanks to a good upper design.
The shutter button is on the axis.
The shape is very easy to operate.
The position of the winding lever on the Canon A35 Datelux is the opposite of that of the Canonet introduced in the previous issue.
The lower winding lever of the Canonet has been replaced by an upper lever on the Canon A35 Datelux, as shown in this article.
As the years went by, I think the original design had to change to be in sync with the surroundings.
It is because of this history that Canon’s easy-to-use, well-designed products were born.
In this issue, we introduced the film winding lever of Canon’s rangefinder released in 1977.
We will continue to introduce any unique design or function in the future, so please stay tuned!
