but I would like you to understand

Canon FX (Reference product)
The mirror lock lever is a lever used to raise the mirror to prevent vibration and shock when the mirror is lowered at slow shutter speeds or when shooting with a tripod.
The mirror lock lever is located diagonally below the exposure light sensor on the front of the body.
The lever is circular and the part that touches the hand is cut into a square.
The mirror is in the normal position when the square part of the lever is pointing down.
When the lever is raised up, the mirror is up and locked.
In this article, we introduced the mirror lock lever design of Canon’s 1964 manual focus SLR camera.
The mirror lock lever is an indispensable function to reduce blurring during shooting.
The lever design is comfortable in the hand and easy to use.
We will continue to introduce you to the features and designs of film cameras that you may be interested in, so please look forward to it!
