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

In this article, we will introduce the exposure compensation dial of OLYMPUS’s 1979 manual focus film SLR camera.

OLYMPUS OM10 (Reference product)

The exposure compensation dial is shared with the shutter speed mode dial and the film sensitivity dial.

There are four different correction values.
The black base color and white color have 5 different correction values.
+The +1 and 2 are for red color and the -1 and 2 are for blue color.

To select a value, align the exposure compensation value on the same line as the portion of film sensitivity to be used while lifting the side of the dial.

A wide variety of functions are concentrated on a single dial.

In this article, we introduced the exposure compensation dial of an Olympus manual focus SLR camera released in 1979.

In this camera, three functions are integrated in one dial, making it a very rational dial.

I think the dial is not only functional but also sophisticated in design.

Please look forward to the next issue, where we will continue to introduce various design and functional areas of interest to you!

Thank you again for reading this column.
