Grip design of a PENTAX film SLR 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
Today we will be taking a look at the grip design of Pentax’s 1997 autofocus film SLR camera.
PENTAX MZ-50 (Reference product)
The body is made of plastic in champagne gold and black colors.
The grip is also made of brass plastic.
The grip section features a simple vertical protrusion.
The upper part of the grip has a large semicircular design with a triangular apex.
The bottom part has the same design as the top part.
Since the battery compartment is located inside the grip, there is a lid on the bottom.
The grip is designed simply to use a single AA battery.
The manufacturer’s logo is vertically placed on the grip!
In this issue, we introduced a Pentax autofocus SLR camera grip released in 1997.
Compared to the Konica SLR camera grip we introduced last time, this one has a very simple design.
This part of the grip also serves as the battery compartment, and the grip design is influenced by the battery size.
The manufacturer’s logo is marked in large letters on the grip, which we think is a nice touch.
This grip design is an important part of each manufacturer’s unique grip design, and we will continue to feature it in the future, so please look forward to it!
