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

OLYMPUS OM10 (Reference product)

The film sensitivity dial doubles as a shutter speed dial and an exposure compensation dial.

Only ASA display is available, from 25 to 1600.
Black base color with white color numerical values and markings.

The white-colored indicators on the exposure compensation dial outside the dial serve as setting markers.

Turn the dial while lifting the outside of the dial to set.

The sides of the dial have a vertical knurled design.

In this issue, we have introduced the film sensitivity dial of an Olympus manual focus SLR camera released in 1979.

This time, the dial is both a shutter speed and exposure compensation dial, but as the years progressed, more and more cameras began to have two or more function dials with the same specifications.

As the camera’s age progressed, more and more function dials were used for both shutter speed and exposure compensation.

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