Medium format viewfinder!
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
Vintage camera viewfinder find series!
In this article, I will write about viewfinders for medium format cameras.
We will refer to the cameras on sale at our vintage shop Japan Inc.
Medium format cameras are often used mainly for news reporting.
The viewfinder also appears to have professional specifications.
The Mamiya Press was launched in 1960.
The viewfinder is round.
It has a slightly special shape with a numeric memory.
This is because it has a distance meter that is linked to the lens focusing ring and viewfinder.
TOPCON HORSEMAN 985 was launched in 1973.
This is also a round viewfinder.
It is a round viewfinder, but with a viewfinder of a different size next to it.
The larger one on the left determines the subject and the smaller one determines the distance.
We discovered that the viewfinder of a medium format camera is a mechanism suitable for professional use!
I’ll keep you posted on my column as I discover more areas, so stay tuned!
In addition to the medium format cameras introduced this time, we also sell vintage cameras and lenses, anime goods, and radio cassette recorders, so please see the URL below.
