In this issue, we will take a look at the film sensitivity dial on Konica’s 1979 manual focus film SLR camera.

Konica FS-1 (Reference product)

The film sensitivity dial is built into the shutter speed dial located between the eye-level finder and the shutter button.

It is available only in ASA. Yellow base with black color text display panel.
25, 50, 100, 200, 400, 800, 1600, 3200

This is the numerical setting.

ASA100 display

The last ASA3200 display.

Turn the protruding part surrounding the ASA display to set the sensitivity value in the numeric window.

The projection design of the dial display settings is very good.

In this issue, we introduced the film sensitivity dial of Konica’s 1979 release manual focus SLR camera.

This camera’s film sensitivity setting dial is a streamlined design built into the shutter speed dial introduced in the previous issue.

The two functions are integrated in one dial, making the film sensitivity dial easy to understand and use.

We will continue to introduce various interesting features and designs of film cameras in the future, so please look forward to them!
