but I would like you to understand

Thank you

In this issue, we will take a look at the film sensitivity dial on YASHICA’s 1978 manual focus film SLR camera.

YASHICA FRⅡ (Reference product)

The film sensitivity dial is located next to the eye-level finder on the opposite side of the film wind-up handle.
It is also used with the exposure compensation dial and film rewind handle.

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

This is the numerical setting.

Pinch and turn the protruding part surrounding the ASA display upward to display the sensitivity value in the numeric window to set the value.

The outside of the dial is designed to be easy to pick up.

In this issue, we have introduced the film sensitivity dial of a YASHICA manual focus SLR camera released in 1978.

The film sensitivity setting dial on this camera doubles as an exposure compensation dial and film rewind handle, which is standard for this age.

It is easy to understand because the two functions are integrated in one dial, but it takes a lot of force to pinch it up.

We will continue to introduce various detailed and interesting features and designs of film cameras in the future, so please look forward to them!
