at first

I’m sorry

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

Thank you!

In this issue, we would like to introduce the front panel of ASAHI Optical Industries’ PENTAX brand film compact all-automatic camera released in 1986.

PENTAX zoom-70 DATE (Reference product)

There is a switch on the right side of the lens, below the viewfinder.

The camera is equipped with three types of switches: self-timer, flash, and exposure switch.

The design is such that those switches are set at an angle.

In this issue, we introduced the front panel of a PENTAX brand film compact fully automatic camera released in 1986 by ASAHI Optical Industries.

The front panel design corresponds to the design of the camera grip on the flash side.

The slanted design is very unique, novel, and intrepid camera!

Please look forward to my next column, where I will continue to write about the wonderful designs of film cameras that are of interest to you!
