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 article, we will introduce the film sensitivity dial of Asahi Optics’s manual focus film SLR camera released in 1975.

ASAHI PENTAX K2 (Reference product)

The film sensitivity dial is built between the lens mount and the camera body.

ASA display only; settings are from 8 to 6400.
Black base color with white color numerical values and markings.

Press and turn the button next to the 6400 number toward the indicator.

The design makes it very easy to understand the size relationship of the zeros on the dial.

In this issue, we introduced the film sensitivity dial of Asahi Optics’s 1975 release manual focus SLR camera.

This is a completely different concept of setting than the film sensitivity dials we have previously introduced.

We would like to find various setting designs with lens mounts, as some other companies had their shutter speeds set in this position.

We will continue to introduce all kinds of functional designs and areas of interest, so please look forward to reading more!
