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 will look at the lens mount base design of KONICA’s 1976 manual focus film SLR camera.

KONICA ACOM-1  (Reference product)

The lens mount on this body is a Konica Mount II (AR mount).
The mount base is designed to be lowered from the eye-level viewfinder to the bottom of the body in a gentle angled curve. The lower part of the mount base has a large R-curve design on both the left and right sides.

The lens mount is held in place with four screws.
The lens mount base is made of steel and plated on the front and plastic on the side that meets the camera body.

The bottom corners of the lens mount base are designed to be cut at an angle.

In this issue, we have introduced a lens mount base for a manual focus SLR camera released by Konica in 1976.

The design is basically straight lines and smooth curves, but I think the design of the bottom corner is cut to facilitate lens mounting.

I think the plastic base allows for a variety of designs.


Please look forward to my future columns on lens mount base designs for film SLR cameras!
