Paste leather for OLYMPUS film half-size cameras !
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
In this issue, we would like to introduce the paste leather of the OLYMPUS film half-size camera released in 1973.
OLYMPUS-PEN EE-3 (Reference product)
The front of the body is covered with a square-based design with brackets.
The size of the bracket is a type of bracket with different thicknesses at both ends and the center of the bracket both at the top and bottom.
The hinge of the film chamber lid on the side is covered with the same leather bracket as on the front.
The area of the leather on the front and the film chamber lid is different.
The film chamber opening on the opposite side has the same set of pasted leather.
The paste leather bracket on the film chamber lid has the same design as the front one, and there is a difference in the area design of the paste leather due to the difference in the bracket sections at the top and bottom.
This time we introduced the paste leather for OLYMPUS film half-size camera released in 1973.
The design is completely different and sophisticated from the pasted leather for SLR cameras.
Although the half-size camera’s leather design is rare in this column, it is very popular even today, and there are a number of commercially available leather products exclusively for PEN cameras.
I will continue to write columns on various aspects of film cameras that are of interest to you, so please look forward to them!
