Film sensitivity dial design for Asahi Optics film SLR cameras Part 2 !
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 article, we will introduce the film sensitivity dial of Asahi Optics’s PENTAX brand manual focus film SLR camera released in 1979.
PENTAX ME Super (Reference product)
The film sensitivity dial is integrated inside the exposure compensation dial below the rewind crank.
This setting is for ASA display only, from 20 to 1600.
The numerical values are shown in black color on a silver-colored base plate.
It is compatible with films up to ASA 1600 sensitivity.
The sensitivity setting is made by turning the dial while lifting the side of the dial.
The sides of the dial have a relaxed design with an arched edge.
In this issue, we have introduced the film sensitivity dial of Asahi Optics’s PENTAX brand manual focus SLR camera released in 1979.
This camera has a new found design in this column that doubles as an exposure compensation dial!
As we approach the 80s, I believe that technological advances have led to more and more dials with dual-use settings.
We will continue to introduce a wide variety of functional designs and other areas of interest in the future!
