Easy-to-understand names for camera lenses



at first

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

This time, it’s easy for everyone to understand

I will write about the name of each part of the camera lens

This time it is the lens that comes with the SLR camera.

Minolta SR-1 + MC ROKKOR-PF 55mm f/1.7

(I refer to this SLR camera that is for sale.)

Names of typical functions

Front lens

The lens at the very front


The name, type, focal length and serial number of the lens

The part marked

Rear Lens

The lens at the very back

Lens mount

The part combined with the camera body

Helicoid ring (focus ring)

A control ring to ensure that the object to be

photographed is clearly visible

(Ring for focusing, also called focusing ring)

Aperture ring

A ring that adjusts the amount of light coming

in through the front lens

Center mark

Markers to align the lens when mounting

it on the camera

The above is my attempt to explain the lens

in simple terms

Again, there are many unfamiliar names and difficult content

There is a lack of writing

I will try to make the content as easy as possible

for anyone to understand

And to get everyone interested in and enjoying film cameras

I’ll be writing, so please bear with me!
