In this issue, we will be looking at the film rewind handle of Canon’s 1966 manual focus film SLR camera.

Canon PELLIX QL (Reference product)

The film rewind handle is used to rewind the film when shooting is finished.

It is located on the top of the body above the eyepiece shutter switch dial.

The handle is stored in the disk, and when in use, the handle is raised and turned in the direction of the arrow to wind up the film.

Opening the lid of the film chamber reveals the film rewinding shaft.

When the film is finished rewinding, lift the handle to raise the shaft to the top and remove the film.

In this issue, we introduced the film rewind handle of Canon’s manual focus SLR camera released in 1966.

This film rewind lever is a functional part of a film camera.

Although it is not a part of modern digital cameras, I think this handle is an item that produces an important moment of satisfaction after finishing taking a picture.

We will continue to introduce the interesting parts and distinctive designs of film cameras in the future, so please look forward to it!

Thank you again for reading this column.
