Continuing from yesterday’s series on film winding levers for SLR cameras!

This time, we would like to look at the film winding lever of the SLR camera released in 1975 by Asahi Optics.

What is a winding lever?

In film cameras, there is a function that is found only in rangefinder cameras and SLR cameras. The film winder lever is used to manually advance the film to the next frame after the shutter is released to prepare for shooting.

ASAHI PENTAX K2 (Reference product)

This black colored film manual SLR camera made of steel and plastic was released in 48 years from now.

The film winding lever is located on the top surface near the shutter button and shutter speed dial.

The winding lever axis is located at the film counter.

The lever is made of steel.

The hand-holding part is a smooth, easy-to-operate lever made of plastic.

This time we introduced the film winding lever of the Asahi Optics SLR camera released in 1975.

The SV introduced in the previous issue uses a steel film winder lever, but the part that hangs on the hand is made of a plastic part that is gentle to the hand, making the lever easy to operate.

This time, we are introducing the film winder lever, but you can learn a lot about the process of evolution by looking at the same parts in various ways.

We will continue to introduce not only film winding levers but also various other parts in the future, so please look forward to them!
