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 issue, we would like to discuss the film counter design of Canon’s 1964 manual focus film SLR camera.

Canon FX (Reference product)

The film counter is located next to the shutter release button.

The number of sheets can be checked through a rectangular window.

The basic design is a black base with white-colored letters, and the number of sheets is indicated clearly by a black-colored indicator outside the window.

When the film is not installed, the display starts with the letter “S”.

When a film is inserted and a picture is taken, the camera starts with the red color 0.

After that, the numbers will be displayed as even numbers. The 20th image is displayed in red color.

The 36th picture is shown in red color.

At the end, up to the 40th picture is displayed.

This time, we introduced a film counter for a manual focus film SLR camera released in 1964 by Canon.

This is a very common type of film counter.

Since it has a simple design, I think it is very easy to understand and read.

We will continue to introduce interesting designs and good features of film cameras, so please look forward to it!

Thank you for reading this column again.
