The film sensitivity dial is located on the front of the camera, below the exposure meter receiver window, next to the lens.

It is available only in ASA and has a black base with silver-colored letters on the display panel.

The range is from 10 to 800.

The red-colored triangle is used as an indicator.

In this issue, we introduced the film sensitivity dial of MAMIYA’s rangefinder compact camera released in 1959.

The rangefinder compact cameras of this time were very easy to operate, as the functions were set individually, just like SLR cameras.

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