In this issue, we will look at the lens mount base design of a manual focus film SLR camera released in 1964 by Canon.

CANON FX (Reference product)

The lens mount for this body is the FL mount.
The mount base is designed with a gentle slant from the underside of the eye-level finder down to the outer diameter of the lens mount, and then slanting back up again to the upper extension of the initial starting point.

The lens mount consists of a black-colored body side and a silver lens mount side.

The lens mount is inlaid.

In this issue, we have introduced a lens mount base from Canon’s 1964 release of a manual focus SLR camera.

Lens mount bases for SLR cameras in the 1960s were often rectangular in shape, albeit with large curves and ovals, and the design of this FX is in that vein.

This FX is a very simple and neatly designed film SLR camera.


Please look forward to my future columns on the lens mount base design of film SLR cameras and other features of interest!
