Film rewind handle for FUJIFILM lens shutter film compact 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
We would like to introduce the film rewind handle of FUJIFILM’s Fujica brand lens shutter film compact camera released in 1962.
What is a film rewind handle?
A film rewind handle is a handle used on a film camera to rewind the leader (photographed surface) back into the patrone (outer film case) to develop the film at the end of shooting.

The film rewind handle is located on the side of the body above the film chamber open/close lever.
There is an easy-to-understand rewind indicator on the handle itself. And since it is not on the same base as the other dials, it is located in an easily recognizable place. Normally, the handle body is retracted.
The handle and handle body are made of steel. When used, the retracted handle is opened and rotated in the direction of the arrow to rewind the film.
Even though it is on the side, the design is slim and unobtrusive.
In this article, we introduce the film rewind handle of Fujifilm’s Fujica brand lens shutter film compact camera released in 1962.
Generally, the film rewind handle is placed on the same base as the film sensitivity dial and other dials, but in the Fujica 35 Auto M, it is a stand-alone entity that plays a proper role.
I think it is wonderful that film cameras of this era are well made without being simplified, even for compact cameras.
I will continue to send out information on various interesting aspects of film cameras and my own discoveries, so please look forward to it!
