Paste leather for MAMIYA’s rangefinder cameras !



at first

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 MAMIYA’s rangefinder camera released in 1959.

MAMIYA 35 Ruby (Reference product)

The front of the body is covered with leather pasted in various pressed designs in the horizontal direction with brackets.

The size of the bracket is of a type with different dimensions at the top and bottom, firmly holding the pasted leather in place.

In the side section, even the hinge of the film chamber lid is securely attached with brackets.

The opening and closing levers of the film chamber on the opposite side are set with the same design of pasted leather as the front one.

The paste leather brackets on the film chamber lid have the same design as those on the front, and the same brackets are used on the top and bottom to hold the paste leather firmly in place.

This time, we introduced the pasted leather of Mamiya’s rangefinder camera released in 1959.

The rangefinder cameras of this era used the same type of pasted leather as SLR cameras.

The design of the pasted leather is perfect for a rangefinder camera with a silver body and a profound feeling.

I will continue to write columns on various exterior designs and functional parts of various film cameras that interest me, so please look forward to them!

Thank you for reading my column today.
