Film chamber lid open knob design for PENTAX 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
In this issue, we would like to introduce the film chamber lid open knob design of PENTAX’s auto-focus film SLR cameras released in 1997.
PENTAX MZ-50 (Reference product)
The open knob is located on the side, and the rectangular knob in the center of the long-hole-shaped depression under the strap bracket is slid down while pressing down.
The rectangular knob is held down and the film chamber lid opens.
An icon mark indicating film installation is located on the knob.
In this issue, we introduced the film chamber lid open knob design of PENTAX’s 1997 autofocus film SLR camera.
Camera bodies of this era were mostly made of plastic or resin, and the opening and closing levers were gradually simplified.
Each functional part is indicated by an icon mark so that even a small knob is easy to understand.
I will continue to write columns about the details and good designs that I find interesting in film cameras, so please look forward to them!
