PENTAX autofocus zoom film compact camera!
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
Today we have a PENTAX film compact camera with autofocus zoom released in 1995.
PENTAX ESPIO 115M (Reference product)
*The zoom lever is missing. Please understand.
This compact camera is made of plastic and is gray in color.
The light receiving section, auxiliary light receiving section, distance measurement window, viewfinder, remote control light receiving window, and strobe are arranged side by side at the top of the front section.
The mounted lens is a zoom lens, which is a 38-115 mm lens.
On the top side is the date button, LCD display panel, film rewind button, flash switch, red-eye reduction button, self-timer/remote control button, power switch, shutter button, and the zoom lever, which is missing in this photo.
The bottom has a tripod seat.
The battery compartment is located on the side.
On the rear side is the diopter adjustment dial, viewfinder, autofocus and flash pilot lights, panorama shooting switch lever, zoom lever, and film chamber lid.
This time, we introduced a PENTAX autofocus zoom compact camera released in 1995.
The Espio 115M is based on the world’s first compact camera with zoom, the Zoom 70, which was released by PENTAX in 1986.
It was a compact camera with various functions in spite of its compact size.
The Espio series was a long-selling compact camera that lasted until 2003.
I hope to introduce other models in this series when I have a chance, so please look forward to it!
