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 zooming lever of ASAHI Optical Industries’ Pentax brand film compact fully automatic camera released in 1986.

PENTAX zoom-70 DATE (Reference product)

The zooming lever is located on the upper right side of the film chamber lid on the back of the camera.

The lever is gray-colored, and moving it to the right zooms in and back to the left undoes it.

This time we introduced the zooming lever of a PENTAX brand film compact fully automatic camera from ASAHI Optical Industries released in 1986.

The color of the lever is different from other colors so it is easy to recognize.

The lever in a good position allows for quick and easy zoom adjustment.

Please look forward to my next column, where I will continue to write about the wonderful designs of film cameras that are of interest to you!
