Shutter speed dial design for Konica film SLR cameras!
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 issue, we will take a look at the shutter speed dial on Konica’s 1976 manual focus film SLR camera.
Konica ACOM-1 (Reference product)
It will be a film SLR camera with a black steel body and black pasted leather, released in 1976.
The shutter speed dial is located next to the shutter release button.
On the disk-shaped knob dial, speed values from 8 to 1/1000 second are marked in white color.
On one side of the center of the dial, film sensitivity is indicated in black letters on white letters.
The film sensitivity is set to match the film by pulling the flat knurled knob on the circumference up.
This is an important value for photographic results.
This knob dial is designed like the aperture ring of a camera lens.
In this issue, we introduced the shutter speed dial of a manual focus SLR camera released by Konica in 1976.
Like the Canon FX and the Asahi Pentax SPOTMATIC F introduced in the previous and previous articles, this shutter speed dial is shared with the film sensitivity setting.
Like the aperture ring on the camera lens, the dial design is very comfortable in the hand, and the characteristics of each manufacturer can be seen in this part of the dial design, which is very interesting.
Please look forward to seeing more shutter speed dials of various designs in the future!
