Film sensitivity setting section of a Canon rangefinder camera!
Because we can’t speak english
I am using DeepL translate, so it may be a strange sentence,
but I would like you to understand
In this issue, we will introduce the film sensitivity setting section of Canon’s rangefinder film compact camera released in 1965.
Canonet QL 25 (Reference product)
The film sensitivity setting unit is mounted on the underside of the camera lens.
Film sensitivity is indicated by ASA and DIN.
Set the value by moving the lever in the middle between the ASA and DIN displays while pressing the lever using the slit in the center.
This time we introduced the film sensitivity setting section of Canon’s rangefinder film compact camera released in 1965.
The film sensitivity setting section of this Canonet is functionally identical to that of the Minolta Hi-Matic 9 introduced previously, with the only difference being the position of the ASA/DIN display.
Since Minolta’s release year is later than Canon’s, Canon seems to be the first film sensitivity section to be set.
We will continue to introduce various areas of interest and designs in film cameras in the future, so please look forward to it!
