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 1962.

OLYMPUS PEN-D (Reference product)

The film shutter button on the PEN-D is located next to the exposure meter’s light-receiving window on the top of the body.

It is rectangular and has a machined slit for ease of use.

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

It is just the right height and easy to use.

In this article, I introduced the film winding dial of an OLYMPUS half-size film camera released in 1962.

I had never thought that the optional self-timer could be attached directly to the shutter release button.

The shutter button is an obvious feature, but it has an important role in a small part of the camera.

I will continue to write columns on features and distinctive aspects of various film compact cameras that interest me, so please look forward to them!

Thank you for reading my column today.
