This is another in the series of film winding levers for SLR cameras!

This time we will look at the film winding lever of the SLR cameras released by Olympus in 1973.

What is the film winder lever?

In a film SLR camera, the film winder lever is used to manually advance the film to the next frame after releasing the shutter using a lever to prepare for shooting.

OLYMPUS OM-1 (Reference product)

This is a steel, silver-colored film manual SLR camera released 50 years ago.

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

The winding lever axis is located at the film counter.

The lever body is made of steel.

The part that hangs on the hand is a plastic lever.

In this issue, we introduced the film winder lever of an Olympus SLR camera released in 1973.

The Olympus film winder lever has a straight line design, similar to Asahi Optics’s film winder lever introduced in the previous issue. The characteristics of each manufacturer can be seen in the film winder lever.

We will continue to introduce parts of film cameras that show the characteristics of various manufacturers in the future!
