Film compact camera flash design! Part2!
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
Continuing from the previous column,
I was curious about the design of the flash built into the film compact camera, so I would like to write using the product currently on sale at our company Vintage Shop Japan Inc.
The flash is indispensable for film compact cameras, but regardless of the manufacturer, each flash design shows its own individuality.
In this issue, we will look at the flash designs of Olympus and Konica film compact cameras.
OLYMPUS OZ 80 Zoom
On the Olympus OZ 80 ZOOM, it looks like the inside of the flash has a horizontal slit.
When close-up, you can see the vertical slit.
Konica Z-up 150 VP
The flash of the Konica Z-up 150 VP has a slit in the side.
The slits are widely spaced.
Again, I have seen the flash designs of two film compact cameras, and I think the difference between the vertical and horizontal slits gives the manufacturer’s unique identity.
I don’t think flash design has anything to do with photography, but I tend to focus on the irrelevant parts (laughs)!
I’ve been writing a lot of miscellaneous columns lately, so I’d like to focus more on the practical side of things!
Thank you for reading my column today.
