but I would like you to understand

Thank you

Today we will be taking a look at the grip design of Canon’s 1991 autofocus film SLR camera.

MINOLTA α3xi (Reference product)

It has a black-colored body with a discreet plastic sheen.

The grip is a slightly lighter black color than the body color, and the part where the fingertips hang when gripping it has two long vertical brackets.

The surface of the grip has been treated to prevent slipping.

The design has a fairly large curve when viewed from the top.

The lower part differs from the upper part in having a smaller curved design.
There is a battery compartment in the grip with a lid.

The shutter release button is designed for ease of use, and the slide switch for changing shutter speed is located on the top of the grip.

In this issue, we have introduced a grip for Minolta’s 1991 release auto-focus SLR camera.

The grip design is quite different from the grips of other manufacturers that we have previously introduced.

We were able to discover various innovations to make it as easy to grip as possible.

By looking at the grip designs, we were able to learn about the characteristics of each manufacturer.

We will continue to introduce the differences in design in various areas in the future, so please look forward to it!
