Film chamber lid open knob design for CONTAX film SLR cameras!
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
I would like to introduce the film chamber lid open knob design of a CONTAX manual focus film SLR camera released in 1987.
CONTAX １６７MT (Reference product)
To open the film chamber in general, the film rewind handle is lifted up to the top, but in the CONTAX 167MT, the open knob on the side is used.
Slide the top and bottom rectangular slides on the sides and the round knob in the center downward while pressing down.
The rectangular sliding section moves down and the film chamber lid opens.
The design allows the open knob to fit smartly without destroying the overall design.
This time we introduced the film chamber lid open knob design of a manual focus film SLR camera released by CONTAX in 1987.
This 167MT was designed by Porsche, the German sports car manufacturer.
Therefore, it is a very sophisticated design and has been carefully designed down to the smallest detail.
Even the film chamber lid-opening knob has been designed neatly and smartly, which impressed us!
I will continue to write columns about designs and discoveries of film cameras that interest me, so please look forward to them!
Thank you for reading my column today.
