Rear body design of a Minolta film SLR camera!



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

Today I’d like to take a close-up look at the rear body design of Minolta’s 1991 autofocus film SLR camera.

MINOLTA α3xi (Reference product)

The area of concern is the lid of the film chamber on the rear body.

There is a smooth curved projection on the right side.

This is exactly where the thumb rests when holding the camera.

You can hold the camera body very naturally.

In this article, we introduced the rear body design of Minolta’s 1991 release auto-focus SLR camera.

The α3xi has a design that makes extensive use of curved surfaces, and the back side of the camera also uses that design well.

It is a very easy to grip camera body.

We will continue to introduce designs and other interesting aspects of film cameras in the future, so please look forward to them!

Thank you again for reading this column.
