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 shutter button of the OLYMPUS film half-size camera released in 1973.

OLYMPUS-PEN EE-3 (Reference product)

The film shutter release button on the PEN-D is located on an extension of the manufacturer’s logo plate above the front part of the body.

It is cylindrical in shape and easily recognizable as a shutter release button.

An optional mechanical self-timer can be built into the screw thread.

It is light and easy to press for ease of use.

In this issue, we introduced the film winding dial of the OLYMPUS half-size film camera released in 1973.

The shutter button of the EE-3, which evolved from the rectangular shape of the PEN-D introduced in the previous issue to a cylindrical one, is very easy to understand and use.

It also inherits the ability to use the self-timer with the shutter release button.

I will continue to write columns on the features of various film compact cameras that are of interest to you, so please look forward to them!

Thank you for reading my column today.
