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 would like to introduce the pasted leather of Canon’s manual focus film SLR camera released in 1964.

Canon FX (Reference product)

The leather on the FX is an orthodox design unique to film SLR cameras, and has a fine feel to it.
The front leather bracket is made of steel, thicker at the top and thinner at the bottom, and holds the leather firmly in place.

The hinge area of the film chamber is also fitted with the same pasted leather and brackets as in the front.

The opening and closing of the film chamber on the opposite side also has a firmly attached leather fit.

In the rear film chamber lid, the size of the paste leather bracket is upside down compared to the front.

This time we introduced the paste leather of Canon’s manual focus film SLR camera released in 1964.

Although the FX introduced this time is a SLR camera released 59 years ago, everything is so solid that it is hard to believe that the camera is more than half a century old, and the pasted leather does not seem to have deteriorated at all over the years.

I think that the era of film SLR cameras up to 1970s was a treasure house of tasteful cameras that could really last for a long time.

I will continue to write columns about interesting designs and new discoveries of film cameras!

Thank you for reading my column today.
