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

In this issue, we will take a look at the shutter control dial on YASHICA’s 1978 manual focus film SLR camera.

YASHICA FRⅡ (Reference product)

The shutter control dial is located between the eye-level finder and the film winding lever.
The letters are marked in silver and orange colors on a black base.

Since this is an Aperture Priority Auto only camera, there are only three displays: B, Auto, and Synchro.
The shutter speed seems to be 1/1000 sec. to 4 sec. and synchro to 1/60 sec.

To change the shutter control mode, turn the outside of the dial as it is and align it with the indicator in the center.

The outside of the dial is silver-colored and easy to pick up.

In this issue, we have introduced the shutter control dial of a YASHICA manual focus SLR camera released in 1978.

Since this FR II is an aperture priority auto only camera, the shutter speed can be easily set by operating the dial.

The design of the outside of the dial seemed to have a very intrepid form.

We will continue to introduce various specifications and areas of interest of film cameras in the future, so please look forward to them!
