In this issue, we take a look at the film rewind switch design of CONTAX’s 1987 manual focus film SLR camera.

CONTAX 167MT (Reference product)

I was curious about the film rewind switch on the CONTAX 167MT, so I looked into it.

It is located near the top of the camera, diagonally below the exposure compensation dial.

While pressing the circular button on the left, slide the switch on the right to rewind the film.

The slide section is designed for ease of use.

In this article, we introduced the film rewind switch design of a Contax manual focus SLR camera released in 1987.

The film rewind section, which is essential for photography, is designed to be easy to operate.

This camera by Porsche Design has been thought out down to the smallest detail.


I will continue to write columns on areas of interest for film SLR cameras, so please look forward to them!
