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 grip of ASAHI Optical Industries’ Pentax brand film compact all-automatic camera released in 1986.

PENTAX zoom-70 DATE (Reference product)

There is a grip in position near the shutter release area.

The area near the lens has a moderately shaped design where the fingers touch.

It has a hard, thick grip design.

This time, we introduced a grip for a PENTAX brand film compact fully automatic camera released in 1986 by ASAHI Optical Industries.

This compact camera has an overall straight line design, but the grip part is curved, so you can release the shutter safely.

It is a wonderfully designed camera with a combination of straight and curved lines!

Please look forward to my next column, where I will continue to write about the design and functions of various parts of film cameras that are of interest to you!

Thank you for reading my column today.
