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!

Today we are pleased to introduce you to KYOCERA’s YASHICA-branded film SLR camera drive selector, introduced in 1989.

YASHICA 108 MULTI PROGRAM (Reference product)


The drive selector is located below the film rewind crank.

The drive selector is a mode that allows the user to choose the number of sheets of film that will advance when the shutter is released.

To operate the drive selector, simply rotate it using the jagged knob.

In “S” (single) mode, a single shot can be taken with a single press of the shutter release.

In “C” (Continuous) mode, you can take pictures continuously as long as you hold down the shutter release.

This time we introduced a drive selector for KYOCERA’s YASHICA brand film SLR camera, which was introduced in 1989.

This drive selector is located in an inconspicuous position.

It is a very convenient drive selector that can be operated very easily.

Please look forward to my next column, where I will continue to write about the basic equipment and design of film cameras that you may be interested in!
