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
In this article, we will introduce the shutter speed dial of a manual focus film SLR camera released in 1979 under the Asahi Optics Pentax brand.
PENTAX МＥ Super (Reference product)
It will be a film SLR camera with a steel silver color body and black pasted leather, released in 1979.
The shutter speed dial is located near the film winding lever.
The shutter release button and speed dial are then integrated into one unit.
The shutter button is in the center and the dial is on the outside.
On the eye-level finder side, there is a select panel.
Press and hold the white button on the dial to select.
L” is for shutter lock, “AUTO” is for aperture priority, “M” is for shutter manual, “125X” is for strobe sync speed, “B” is for open shutter, and the above selections can be made.
The manual shutter speed can be adjusted by pressing the black color buttons above and below the AUTO display.
The manual speed value is displayed on the left side of the viewfinder for confirmation.
This time we introduced the shutter speed dial of a manual focus SLR camera released in 1979 under the Asahi Optics Pentax brand.
While more and more models in this era have manual and auto shutter speed options, this model is an innovative and ingenious camera that switches between manual shutter speeds at the touch of a button.
It is really exciting to see a camera with a feature that is a great idea!
We will continue to introduce designs and features of interest to you, so please look forward to them!
