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 shooting indicator of ASAHI Optical Industries’ manual focus film SLR camera released in 1962.

ASAHI PENTAX SV (Reference product)

The shooting indicator is located next to the shutter speed dial.

You can check the readiness to shoot by the color visible through the round window.

If the color is gray, the camera is not ready to shoot and the film winding lever is moved.

When the gray color changes to red color, the shutter can be released to take a picture.

In this issue, we introduced a shooting indicator for a manual focus film SLR camera released in 1962 by ASAHI Optical Industries.

This indicator is linked to the film winding lever.

We found it to be a very simple and easy to understand indicator.

Please look forward to my next column where I will continue to write about the various functions and discoveries of film cameras!

Thank you for reading my column today.
