How to check the battery in a Canon 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
In this issue, we would like to discuss how to check the battery in Canon’s 1966 manual focus film SLR camera.
Canon PELLIX QL (Reference product)
The battery check investigates battery capacity, but there are a few steps.
First, align the X portion of the shutter speed switch dial with the index on the body and set the ASA value on the film sensitivity dial to 100.
When the film rewind handle is raised to the top, a clear explanation appears inside the eyepiece shutter switching dial.
While looking through the viewfinder, turn the blue-colored arrow in the eyepiece shutter switch dial to the blue 0 part (” C ” part) on the body side.
The needle of the exposure meter is indicated in the lower right corner of the viewfinder. If the needle is above the zero, the battery capacity is OK; if the needle is below the zero, the battery capacity is insufficient and the battery should be replaced.
In this article, we discussed how to check the battery in Canon’s 1966 release manual focus SLR cameras.
There are many different battery check methods used by different manufacturers.
In this Canon PELLIX QL, the battery check is done in a rather elaborate way, and I think it is a very tasteful mechanism.
We will continue to introduce you to some very interesting aspects and innovative designs of film cameras, so please look forward to it!
