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!
