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 article, we will introduce the shutter speed dial of OLYMPUS’s 1973 manual focus film SLR camera.

OLYMPUS OM-1  (Reference product)

It will be a film SLR camera with a steel silver body and black pasted leather, released in 1973.

The shutter speed dial is integrated into the lens mount.

The shutter speed can be selected with the ring dial. b. The shutter speed is from 1 to 1/1000 sec. b. The setting is for opening the shutter.

Rotate the ring using the two knurled projections on the diagonal of the ring.

In this issue, we introduced the shutter speed dial of an OLYMPUS manual focus SLR camera released in 1973.

In this OM-1, I was very surprised to see OLYMPUS’ original method of a shutter speed dial built into the lens mount, which is completely different from the one next to the shutter button that I have previously introduced.

I get excited every time I discover each manufacturer’s unique line (laughs).

We will continue to introduce various functional parts of the film camera in the future, so please look forward to it!
