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

I would like to introduce the self-timer of Asahi Optics’s manual focus film SLR camera released in 1962.

The Role of the Self-Timer

The self-timer is a function that allows you to release the shutter after a period of time when taking a picture.
This is a very useful part of the process when you want to take a picture of yourself by yourself.

ASAHI PENTAX SV (Reference product)

This SV was released in 1962.

The self-timer is located on the top of the body, under the film rewind handle to the left of the eye-level finder.

This dial is shared with the film sensitivity dial.

Pinch the dial and turn it in the direction of the arrow (clockwise) until it stops.

Then press the silver-plated button next to the dial to release the shutter where the dial comes back counterclockwise and stops.

In this issue we have introduced a self-timer for a manual focus film SLR camera released in 1962 by Asahi Optics.

This self-timer is located in a very surprising place. It is very unusual in that it doubles as a film sensitivity dial.

I will continue to write columns covering various aspects of the camera, so please look forward to them!

Thank you for reading my column today.
