but I would like you to understand

Thank you

In this issue, we will take a look at the film sensitivity dial on OLYMPUS’s 1973 manual focus film SLR camera.

OLYMPUS OM-1 (Reference product)

The film sensitivity dial is located next to the shutter release button.

This setting is for ASA display only, from 25 to 1600.
The numbers are color-coded in two jumps from the beginning.

To operate the dial, turn the dial while pressing the pushbutton near the shutter release button.

The side of the dial has a 4-step flat knurled design for superior operability.

In this issue, we introduced the film sensitivity dial of an OLYMPUS manual focus SLR camera released in 1973.

This camera has a unique design in which the film sensitivity dial is located where the shutter speed dial section is on other manufacturers’ cameras.

It is very easy to read and the knurled part of the dial is also designed in a way that other cameras do not have.

We will continue to introduce various functional design parts in the future, so please look forward to them!

Thank you again for reading this column.
