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 issue, we will take a look at the film sensitivity dial on Konica’s 1976 manual focus film SLR camera.

Konica ACOM-1 (Reference product)

The film sensitivity dial is built into the shutter speed dial next to the shutter release button.

Available only for ASA. It will have black color letters on a silver base.
It starts from 25.

The last can be set up to 1600.

Lift the knurled portion of the dial upward to set the value.

The sides of the dial have a rather fine flat knurled design made of brassic. The design resembles the focusing ring of a camera lens.

In this article, we introduced the film sensitivity dial of Konica’s manual focus SLR camera released in 1976.

The film sensitivity setting dial on this camera doubles as the shutter speed dial that we have previously introduced.

The two functions are integrated, but they are very easy to see and use.

We will continue to introduce functional designs of interest in various areas, so please look forward to them!
