Vintage camera self timer lever! Part2!
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 look at the self-timers of film SLR cameras released in the 1970s.
We will take a look at the cameras on sale at our Vintage Shop Japan Inc. as a reference.
Canon EF （35mm SLR Film Camera with 55mm+Zoom 100-200mm lens）
film SLR cameras from the 1950s to the 1960s.
In this article, we will look at the self-timer lever of the Canon FE released in 1973.
Canon EF also has a lever on the shutter side next to the lens mount.
(Reference Canononflex RP)
Here’s a Canonflex RP lever from the 1960s, but
The Canon EF of the 1970s was designed differently.
Operate the lever by pressing the button on the top of the lever.
It can also be used as an aperture metering lever or to raise the mirror.
In this issue, we focus on the self-timer lever of the Canon EF.
The technological progress of film SLR cameras in the 1970s was tremendous.
This self-timer lever alone is a wonderful 10-year advancement.
I’ll keep you posted on any minor features I discover, so stay tuned!
